WATCH: White House Press Briefing 9/8/2017 LIVE STREAM
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will hold a briefing today to discuss the White House’s latest plans and administrative agenda.
The briefing is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. EST.
Today’s briefing comes after Congress voted to approve a deal President Trump struck with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and approve relief funding to repair the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. The package passed through the House of Representatives with a 316-90 vote, meaning that the legislation will provide $15.25 billion in federal aid while the government will avoid the possibility of a shutdown until December.
Even though some people are happy with Trump for being willing to work with Democrats, not every member of the GOP is pleased with the president’s maneuver. Indeed, all 90 of the votes against the bill came from Republican congressmen.
It is also probable that Sanders will talk about what the administration will do if and when Hurricane Irma makes landfall in the southeastern United States. The storm continues to approach Florida after causing major devastation throughout the Caribbean in the last few days. Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency earlier this week, and the Trump Administration has advised citizens to follow all local guidelines for protecting themselves from the storm.
Other topics likely to come up include Trump’s decision to rescind DACA, the latest threats from North Korea, and the various revelations which emerged from Steve Bannon‘s interview to 60 Minutes.
