WATCH: President Trump Holds Press Conference with Spanish PM LIVE STREAM

President Trump is hosting Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy at the White House, and they will hold a joint press conference later today. The news conference is scheduled to begin at 1:45 p.m. EST.

There’s a strong possibility that Trump will face questions over his ongoing war with the NFL and professional athletes who kneel during the National Anthem. Trump’s feud has been at the forefront of the media and political worlds over the last few days, having called anthem kneelers sons of bitches who ought to be fired from their jobs.

While some figures have joined Trump in condemning athletes for their lack of patriotism, others have defended the rights of athletes to demonstrate against racism and political division.

Trump is also likely to face questions about the escalating tensions between America and North Korea. Even though the White House insists that they are continuing negotiations for denuclearization, Trump has kept up his fiery rhetoric against the rogue nation ever since his speech before the United Nations. Trump’s latest tweets against “Rocket Man” Kim Jong Un have reportedly been taken by the North Korean government as a declaration of war.

Other topics which might come up include the Alabama Senate runoff election, Trump’s plans to visit Puerto Rico, and the increased likelihood that the proposed Graham-Cassidy health care reform bill will fail in a Senate vote.
