President Trump addressed a variety of topics Thursday during a news conference announcing Alexander Acosta as the new labor secretary nominee in the East Room at the White House in Washington, D.C.

President Trump began his press conference Thursday afternoon naming his new nominee for labor secretary, R. Alexander Acosta. He then moved on to a range of topics, from the resignation of Michael Flynn as national security adviser and U.S. relations with Russia, to an upcoming executive action on immigration.

He also blasted the media and leaks from within his administration and again touted his electoral victory, while misrepresenting the size of it.

Journalists across NPR have annotated his remarks.

A previous version of an annotation about businesses investing in the U.S. said Ford decided to invest $700 billion to expand its Michigan plant. It actually decided to invest $700 million.
