WATCH LIVE: Trump Speaks at Workers Event Amid Russia Controversy

President Trump is hosting a “Pledge to America’s Workers” event at the White House today, which he will use to promote job training and education around the country. The event is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. ET.

Indications suggest that the Trump Administration has been pushing businesses and industry leaders to work with the White House to set up a joint council on workforce development. The president is expected to talk about this new council and sign an executive order that will focus on retraining workers and “outlying immediate steps to address the vocational crisis.”

This event comes as the Trump Administration continues to do damage control over the president’s handling of his summit with Vladimir Putin. Trump continues to go back-and-forth on whether he accepts the finding of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. In the process, he continues to attack the media and political critics who have condemned him for diminishing America’s intelligence community.

It’s unclear if Trump will take questions during this event, but if he does, this topic is bound to arise.
