President Trump is holding a news conference Wednesday afternoon, as he sends conflicting messages about voting by mail and as negotiators on Capitol Hill still appear far from a deal on coronavirus aid. 

On Tuesday, the president tweeted that “whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure,” after spending months railing against voting by mail. The president still insists voting by mail isn’t safe in other states, like Nevada, which has Democratic leadership and is sending ballots to all registered voters. The Trump campaign is suing the state over its plan to send ballots to all voters. Mr. Trump insists voting by mail is safe in Florida because it has great leaders, who happen to be Republicans. Mr. Trump has voted absentee in Florida in the past. Earlier Wednesday, during a meeting with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, a Republican, the president also gave Arizona his stamp of approval for voting by mail, saying officials there “have done a good job.”How to watch Trump’s news conferenceWhat: President Trump holds a press conferenceDate: Wednesday, August 5, 2020Time: 5 p.m. ETLocation: The White HouseOnline stream: Live on CBSN – in the player above and on your mobile or streaming deviceOn Capitol Hill, negotiators appear to be making little progress on a new coronavirus relief bill, after expanded unemployments expired for millions of Americans.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney said negotiators “need to be working around the clock to get it done.”
