WATCH LIVE: Trump Speaks on Bomb Scare as Suspect Taken Into Custody
President Donald Trump will address the 2018 Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House today — where he plans to address the investigation into this week’s bomb scares, as a suspect has been taken into custody. The speech is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. ET.
The summit, orchestrated by the conservative group Turning Points USA, is a leadership event touting a goal of helping the young African American conservatives discover freedom and self-empowerment. Trump will likely speak about the summit’s interests in promoting professional development and job training, but since it’s a TPUSA event, its possible he’ll take the opportunity to brag that his African American support is supposedly better than ever thanks to his economic policies.
Trump has announced on Twitter, however, that he will use a portion of this event to address the latest developments from the recent bomb scares.
I will be speaking at the Young Black Leadership Summit in 15 minutes where I will address the investigation into the bomb packages.

Cesar Sayoc of Florida has been taken into custody a short time ago in connection with the 12 suspicious packages sent to prominent critics of Trump around the country.
