President-elect Trump uses Twitter as a sort of rolling 24-hour news conference, but he has yet to sit down for a traditional news conference since his victory. Trump had tentatively scheduled a news conference for December, but later said that the date would be moved to January. Trump’s tweet announcing the new date came on January 3.
I will be having a general news conference on JANUARY ELEVENTH in N.Y.C. Thank you.

The “general news conference” as yet has no known agenda, but is expected to be wide ranging. It will be the first news conference Trump has given since winning the election. It will take place 63 days after Hillary Clinton’s concession on November 9.
