White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah will hold a briefing today to discuss the administration’s latest plans and administrative agenda.
Undoubtedly, Shah will face at least a question or two about Sunday night’s Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes. Daniels spoke about her claim that she had an affair with President Donald Trump and was physically threatened to keep quiet about it.
Another topic which figures to be prominent is the president’s decision to expel 60 Russian diplomats in the wake of a chemical attack on an ex-Russian spy in the U.K. for which the United States blames Russia. The president did not address the matter during his phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. Shah may be asked if Trump plans to do so in the near future.
Monday’s briefing is also the first since the March For Our Lives this past Saturday. The anti-gun rally drew hundreds of thousands of people in cities across America, including, most notably Washington D.C. Shah could be asked for the president’s take on the protest.
The briefing is slated to begin at 2:00 p.m. ET. Watch it above, via the White House.
