Political Junkie Ken Rudin analyzes President-Elect Donald Trump's press conference. It will be his first press conference in 167 days.

Tensions between reporters and Trump aside, he answered questions based on his tax returns, Russia hackings, his Twitter activity and his conflicts of interest.

Trump says he pledges to not be involved with any of his businesses, leaving his two sons to be in charge. His press secretary also says that the proceeds from his foreign hotels will go to the U.S. Treasury.

Rudin responds to all these topics, providing historical context as to how former presidents handled situations similar to what Trump is finding himself in now.
