Hand over control of the Trump Organisation to sons Donald Jr and Eric to avoid perceived conflicts of interest while he is in the White House;

Remove daughter Ivanka – whose husband Jared Kushner is a key aide – from all positions with the company;

"I think it's a disgrace that information would be let out," Trump said , training fire on media outlets that published the allegations and the intelligence agencies who he suggested may have leaked it. "It's all fake news. It's phony stuff. It didn't happen," he said in his first press conference in nearly six months. "If Putin likes Donald Trump , I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia," Trump said .

Standing in front of a row of US flags, Mr Trump blamed the creation of the dossier on his political opponents who he said had “got together – sick people – and they put that crap together”.

He thanked media organisations which declined to publish the “phoney stuff”, saying: “They looked at that nonsense that was released by maybe the intelligence agencies – who knows, but maybe the intelligence agencies – which would be a tremendous blot on their record if they in fact did that, a tremendous blot.

“A thing like that should never have been written, it should never have been had and it should certainly never have been released.”
