On Wednesday, President-elect Trump will face the press in his first news conference in 167 days—and the first since he's been elected—at Trump Tower at 11 AM EST.

Trump hasn't held a wide-ranging press conference since that time in Florida during the campaign when he directly called on Russia to help him "find" Hillary Clinton's missing emails. He was supposed to give a press conference last month to address what he plans to do with his business interests once he's sworn into office, but that plan fell apart, and today's conference will probably focus on more than just that.

The media likely has a lot of questions for the president-elect regarding that unverified report that Russia has been trying to blackmail him with sensitive personal information, along with his refusal to accept that Russian hackers had a part in influencing the election, his call to repeal Obamacare, and his plan for his "Great Wall," among other things.
