At the end of his press conference today, Trump described how he’s handing over control of his businesses to his sons. It was actually a pretty funny moment.
Here’s what he said, via the Washington Post:
In what might have been a lighthearted moment at the end of his news conference, President-elect Donald Trump directed somewhat of a threat at his sons Don Jr. and Eric, who will now take over the management of his companies: Do well or you’re fired.
Pointing to a massive stack of folders that he said contained documents on his many businesses, Trump said he hoped that after eight years as president he will retake control of his companies to find that his sons have been successful.
“I hope at the end of eight years I’ll come back and say, ‘Oh, you did a good job,’ ” Trump said. “Otherwise, if they do a bad job, I’ll say, ‘You’re fired.’ ”

Trump probably won’t have to fire his sons.
They’ve been well trained to handle the family business!
