BEDMINSTER, New Jersey - President Trump will hold a news conference set for 12:30 p.m. today from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.
It is expected to be the same location where he held a briefing yesterday.
While The White House has not revealed specifics about the news conference, it's beileved he will discuss signing executive orders tied to the stalled Capitol Hill negotations for an additional coronavirus relief bill.
The president has indicated that if an agreement with congressional Democrats cannot be reached, he will try to unilaterally suspend payroll taxes, extend enhanced federal unemployment benefits, and continue a federal moratorium on evictions.
Aides had suggested to reporters on Friday that the president might sign executive orders that, despite questions about their legality and potential effectiveness, were meant to bypass stalled negotiations about the next round of economic assistance during the pandemic.
