Giuliani says Trump kids could run 'blind trust'

(AP) -

A top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump says it would be "unrealistic" to purge his children from his businesses and hand their control over to an independent trustee.

Appearing on televised interviews on Sunday, Giuliani initially said Trump should set up some kind of "blind trust." When pressed, Giuliani told CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump has an unusual situation and that creating a traditional blind trust would "basically put his children out of work."

He says they then would have to "start a whole new business and that would set up ... new problems."

Giuliani said Trump's three children -- Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric -- who are involved in his businesses would not advise Trump once he becomes president in January.

All three children are, however, are on the executive committee of Trump's transition team.
