CAMPAIGN MOVES: TRUMP TO TAKE QUESTIONS AT CNN TOWN HALL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Donald Trump will take part in a live town hall held by CNN in New Hampshire, according to a tweet from Trump Senior Adviser Jason Miller.
Unregistered voters and Republicans from New Hampshire who intend to cast ballots in the presidential primary next year will make up the audience, which Trump will field questions from.
On Wednesday, May 10, at 9:00 p.m. ET, the town hall meeting will take place at Saint Anselm College and be broadcast live online.
Kaitlan Collins, a CNN anchor, and former White House correspondent, will moderate it as well.
Less than two weeks have passed since Trump visited downtown Manchester, where he delivered comments for nearly two hours and fielded questions from the crowd.
Trump has also announced that he will hold a rally in Des Moines, Iowa on May 13 as part of his Save America PAC’s launch of even more events ahead of the 2024 presidential cycle.
Joseph Biden is being criticized for dodging reporter inquiries in the meanwhile. Biden’s lack of press outreach has gained widespread attention, despite his ardent pledge to be the most open president in history.
Biden has only held two press conferences this year out of 23 since taking office. In contrast, Trump had a total of 88 press conferences while in office.
At the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday, Biden made light of his lack of candor by telling the audience, “In a lot of ways, this dinner sums up my first two years in office. I’ll talk for 10 minutes, take zero questions, and cheerfully walk away.”
