NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is appearing to deny that he is using the powers of his future office to benefit his businesses worldwide.

Trump took to Twitter Monday night to say it was “well-known” that he has properties across the globe. He blamed the media for raising questions about them.

He has said repeatedly that he will leave his company to his children and have no interest in it — but three of his adult children are also playing key roles in his transition.

Trump also tweeted that he believes Nigel Farage, leader of the “Leave” movement that propelled the United Kingdom to quit the European Union, would do “a great job” as Great Britain’s ambassador to the United States.

Farage supported Trump’s campaign and visited the president-elect this week.
