President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden will hold a joint press briefing to discuss the results of the election and the future of the country, according to a White House official.
Trump is set to speak before Biden and Biden will speak before the president.
The White House said in a statement Tuesday that the briefing will take place Thursday.
The two candidates will be joined by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, who are also expected to attend.
Biden and Trump both had to cancel their events because of Hurricane Matthew and their schedules have been pushed back.
Biden’s press conference is expected to be the first in a series, with a final one expected on Friday.
The president has previously talked about the election as “a rigged system” that the election was “rigged,” saying that it’s “obviously something that I think that we’re going to have to take seriously.”
Trump also tweeted Tuesday night that he was “going to make my case for who’s going to be president of the United States” in the event of a contested election.
“We’re going through a very difficult time, but we’re gonna win!”
The administration has made no effort to publicly explain why Trump is not participating in the briefing.
Trump tweeted about the news in an interview with Fox News Sunday, saying that Biden and Clinton are “getting away with murder” in “massive numbers” and that they “should be ashamed of themselves.”
“I would be very, very upset,” Trump said.
“I’d be very unhappy with what’s happening.”
The president also called for electors to cast their votes for Pence.
Pence, a Republican who is running for re-election in Indiana, is a lifelong Republican who has served as governor and U.S. attorney general.
