LIVE: Donald Trump’s first press conference in 6 months

Facing tough questions, President-elect Donald Trump makes his first appearance in front of the press Wednesday morning since before Election Day.

Trump is facing mounting criticism over his cabinet nominations, who are undergoing Senate confirmation hearings over the next week, and a recently published report alleging deep ties to Russian operatives. Also, Trump’s recent appointment of son-in-law Jared Kushner to a top White House advisory role could raise questions over the soon-to-be president’s conflicts of interest in business and nepotism statutes.

Tune in at 11 a.m. to see if Trump will address these issues and more, as America readies to inaugurate the businessman as its 45th president.
