President-elect Donald Trump’s transition website, created this week, laid out some bold plans -- and some errors.

The new site, greatagain.gov, said until Friday afternoon that he owned at least four properties that the Trump Organization has long said he doesn’t, including Trump-branded buildings in Azerbaijan, Turkey, Brazil and Panama that were built and are owned by others. The transition site, which was launched Wednesday, also said he owned six Manhattan towers in which he has only partial or negligible interest.
