Sanders is expected to give a short briefing and then take questions from reporters in the pool. 

Potential briefing topics:

  • What's next in the Russia investigation: Monday, the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election indicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Richard Gates. George Papadopoulos also pleaded guilty to one count of lying to FBI agents about his interactions with "foreign nationals" as a foreign policy adviser within the Trump campaign.
  • Tax reform: Mr. Trump has repeatedly pushed for and promised "historic tax cuts." The House is expected to unveil their tax bill Wednesday, just after the president meets with House Speaker Paul Ryan Tuesday afternoon.
  • Tech testimonies: Facebook, Google and Twitter testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday regarding their role in facilitating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. During election season, Russian trolls purchased political ads on multiple platforms and posted inflammatory content designed to deepen ideological divides in the United States. The three tech giants will also testify before the the House and Senate Intelligence Committees on Wednesday.
