White House holding first press briefing in weeks – live stream

Last Updated Nov 27, 2018 12:46 PM EST

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow are briefing reporters Tuesday, for the first time in a month. 

Kudlow said the U.S. economy is in “good shape.” Asked about General Motors’ massive round of layoffs, Kudlow said there’s a “lot of disappointment, even anger.” 

Mr. Trump said in Mississippi Monday — the day GM announces thousands of layoffs — that he’d found the “magic wand” to bring manufacturing jobs back. 

The president has been holding his own briefings — whether spontaneous or in formal press conferences. The president, returning from his Thanksgiving vacation in Mar-a-Lago and from rallies for Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith in Mississippi, will face a slew of questions on the border, conflict between Russia and Ukraine, potential administration staffing changes and special counsel Robert Mueller.
