    US President Donald Trump's recent news conference in the White House was disrupted by Secret Service agents due to what appeared to be a shooting outside the White House. The presidential complex was not breached, however, although the suspected shooter and a USSS agent were transported to hospital.

    On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump will hold a news conference in the While House in Washington DC.

    It is yet unclear what exactly will be discussed. 

    On Monday's briefing, Trump was suddenly escorted out of the room by the Secret Service, when it later became known that a shooting had taken place outside the White House complex, leaving a suspect and a Secret Service agent transferred to hospital. POTUS resumed his conference shortly thereafter.
