WATCH LIVE: President Trump Holds News Conference At Bedminster, New Jersey Property
President Donald Trump is slated to hold a news conference Saturday evening at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf property – instead of partaking in the original plan of throwing out the first pitch at a New York Yankees game. The topic of the news conference, in true Trump fashion, has yet to be disclosed.
The last-minute public event added to the president’s schedule will occur after 5 PM EST.

The President was supposed to throw out the first pitch at the Yankees game tonight in New York but canceled because of his “strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else.”

Trump, who was scheduled to toss out the first pitch at the Yankees game Saturday evening, pulled the plug on the outing in late July due to what he billed as a need to “focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy, and much else.”
Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the @Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!

News Conference at 5:30 P.M. Enjoy!
