Here’s how to watch Donald Trump’s first press conference since winning the election

Unless he cancels.

Donald Trump will hold a press conference at 11 am ET today, his first since he won the election two months ago, live from Trump Tower in New York City — nine days before he is set to be inaugurated as president of the United States.

It’s not only the first press conference the president-elect has held since he won the election in November, but it’s actually the first formal news conference Trump has held since July, when he was on the campaign trail. He’s opted instead to offer comments to the media on the fly, in interviews with handpicked reporters and on Twitter.

There’s no shortage of issues for Trump to address, including how he plans to reconcile conflicts with his business interests, his appointees (including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who, it was announced on Monday, will be named a senior White House adviser), the future of the Affordable Care Act and immigration.

There’s a chance, of course, that Trump will cancel this press conference, as he did with the press conference that had been scheduled for Dec. 15, especially in light of a scandalous memo shared Tuesday night by BuzzFeed.

The memo alleges that Trump has deep ties to Russian spies and contains unverified allegations about his involvement in “graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians,” which may inspire the president-elect to rethink whatever message he was planning to tell the press this morning.

If you want to watch Trump’s press conference elsewhere, you should be able to catch it on broadcast TV. Then again, you might not, as the news media was annoyed when a September event billed as a “major statement” about President Obama’s birth certificate turned out to be a preview of Trump’s new hotel.

President Obama delivered his farewell address to the nation Tuesday night in Chicago. You can watch a replay of President Obama’s speech on YouTube or read the full transcript released by the White House.
