President-Elect Donald Trump reportedly had a Sunday night conversation with his press pool today.
The Hill reported that the mogul spoke with reporters for approximately half an hour inside of his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, FL. The subjects of the off-the-record meeting are currently unknown, though Melania Trump, incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus, former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, and several of Trump’s senior advisers were said to have been present.
The news has been corroborated by reporters from multiple sources, and it was described as a “cocktail party”:

Trump had an off-the-record meeting with media personnel approximately one month ago, where the president-elect reportedly took the opportunity to blast them and complain about how he was covered throughout the election. Some reports described the encounter as a “f*cking firing squad.” However, he hasn’t had an official press conference in months.
