Obama expected to denounce Trump’s ‘cynical moves’ on mail-in voting – US politics live

During a gaggle with reporters White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said she didn’t know about Trump’s call to boycott Goodyear. But she did say that Trump would hold a briefing at 5 p.m. ET today.

According to a White House pool report the exchange with reporters and Conway went like this:

Why is the president calling for a boycott of Goodyear? It’s an Ohio company, in a battleground state?. Seems like a particularly bad idea for him?

I don’t know what you’re talking about. You can ask about the president at 5 o’clock, he’ll be briefing. I think he’s done plenty for companies in Ohio and elsewhere, far more than Joe Bidne ever did, creating a job.
