Fact Check: President-Elect Trump's First News Conference
The NPR Politics team and reporters across the newsroom will be live-annotating a news conference with President-elect Donald Trump. We will be fact-checking and providing background to his remarks in real-time. We will be paying special attention to any comments about conflicts of interest, health care and national security.
The conference comes after a whirlwind 24 hours in which documents that bring up more questions about Trump's relationship with Russia were published by Buzzfeed. The unverified documents include salacious stories about the President-elect. On Twitter, Donald Trump blasted the documents as "fake news."
