President Trump is expected to meet with trucking industry stakeholders, including drivers and carriers, on Thursday to discuss healthcare, says Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer. He made the announcement Monday during the White House’s daily press briefing.

“The president will hold an event with truck drivers and representatives from the trucking companies and industry on healthcare and its negative impacts on their industry and livelihood, which just happens to be the largest employer in 29 states,” Spicer said.

That was the extent of Spicer’s announcement of the event.

The White House has released no other details about the meeting, including when and where it will take place or how many trucking industry representatives will attend.
