Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will hold a briefing with the White House press corps today at 2:30 p.m. EST.
One thing that’s sure to come up in today’s briefing: President Donald Trump’s cryptic (and somewhat ominous) declaration on Thursday night that a meeting of military leaders marked “the calm before the storm.”
When asked what he meant by that, Trump said only: “you’ll see.”
Expectations that Sanders will actually give a substantive answer as to what the president meant should always be low (my bet: she replies with either “the president speaks for himself” or “I haven’t had a chance to speak to the president about that.”)
If we’re lucky, she might reveal what the president was talking about — which could be upcoming policy moves with regards to Iran, in light of the Trump’s recent announcement that he does not intend to re-certify the nuclear deal.
In light of continued reports on the president’s terrible relationship with Rex Tillerson, we can expect a few questions on where the secretary of state stands — and whether CIA director Mike Pompeo is being considered to replace him.
Otherwise, Puerto Rico still faces a humanitarian crisis, and the debate over gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting has yet to subside. Things kick off at 2:30 p.m. EST.
