A bad one.
The Trump White House is likely to make a few changes to the president’s schedule, including canceling two of his first two official presidential addresses, including a Thursday speech in New York.
The first was scheduled for January, but the White House announced on Friday that the address was canceled after Trump received a “very nasty tweet” from the President-elect.
The Trump transition team later tweeted that “the tweet was a clear indication that he does not respect our country.”
The president-elect will have a chance to change his mind about that and will have the opportunity to deliver a more coherent and focused speech in the coming days, said Brian Fallon, a spokesman for the transition team.
The second address was scheduled to take place on January 16 in St. Petersburg, Russia, according to the transition spokesman.
Trump will have an even harder time getting a message across to the American people, said Mark Dubowitz, an analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
“It’s going to be very difficult for the president to say, ‘We’re going to go there and do this thing, and you’re going have to do this,'” Dubowitz said.
Trump is in the midst of a three-day overseas trip.
He will be on the road in Saudi Arabia, Israel, Israel’s West Bank and Egypt, with stops in Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The White House did not respond to requests for comment on the canceled White House speech.
