President-elect Donald Trump is set to make his long-awaited press conference this morning at 11 a.m. EST from Trump Tower in New York City. If you're counting it will be his first press conference in 167 days. He announced plans to hold one on December 15th, but that never happened. No president-elect in the modern U.S. history has waited this long to hold a formal press conference.
As for exactly what Donald Trump will address during his press conference, just about anything is up for grabs. He announced via his Twitter that it would be a "general news conference" and of course reporters will have a LOT of questions to toss his way.
I will be having a general news conference on JANUARY ELEVENTH in N.Y.C. Thank you.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
It's likely we'll hear about Trump's plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, his Cabinet appointments and how his son-in-law Jared Kushner will factor into his staff. What will be most interesting is how he address his his alleged ties with Russia. Earlier this week, Buzzfeed published a report that Russian operatives claim to have potentially "compromising" intelligence on Trump such as alleged kinky sexual allegations.
Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
