Meeting the press

Donald Trump is scheduled to hold his first press conference in 6 months this morning

The last time Donald Trump held a press conference, in July, he suggested that Russia should hack the emails of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Now — 167 days, more than 1,600 tweets, and at least one aborted press conference later — President-elect Trump is scheduled to face the press at 11 a.m. ET, and he will undoubtedly get questions about Russia again, after his briefing last week on Russian election meddling by the top U.S. intelligence officials and new, unverified reports that Russia has been grooming and sharing information with Trump and has collected "compromising financial and personal information" on him.

Trump is also expected to face questions about how he intends to resolve his business conflicts of interest, his thoughts on replacing ObamaCare, the proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall, whether he plans to continue communicating via Twitter, and whether he believes the debunked claims about vaccines causing autism. The press conference will be at Trump Tower, and it will be broadcast live on most cable news and network TV channels, and streamed live on CBS News and other sites.
