BEDMINSTER, N.J. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will hold a news conference on Saturday at 3:30 ET (1930) GMT at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, the White House said.

Trump on Friday vowed to unilaterally suspend payroll taxes and extend enhanced coronavirus unemployment benefits after negotiations with congressional Democrats on a broad pandemic aid package collapsed.
