Top Aide Says Trump Will Hold Press Conference On Jan. 11

January 3, 2017 9:56 a.m.

Top Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday night that she believed the President-elect would hold a press conference on Jan. 11.

“I believe it was rescheduled for Jan. 11, originally, and if the lawyers and the compliance officers feel like we’re ready, then we’ll stick to that date. It’s really up to them,” Conway told Anderson Cooper on Monday, as quoted by CNNMoney. “But I know that I spoke to the president-elect today about press conference and I know that’s the current plan. So that’s next week.”

Trump canceled last month what he had billed on Twitter as a “news conference” on what he planned to do with his family business, which was scheduled for Dec. 15. At the time, unnamed transition officials told Bloomberg that Trump hadn’t had time to address his business connections because he had been focused on filling his Cabinet.

Trump’s last formal press conference took place on July 27, 160 days ago.
