Former President Donald Trump backed out of a press conference at the last minute on Monday.

According to CNN's Kaitlan Collins, reporters gathered in Palm Beach were told by staff to expect the former president to make a statement on camera but Trump apparently pulled the plug.

"Though his staff initially believed Trump would make a statement in front of cameras following his second impeachment trial, that no longer appears to be the plan," Collins revealed on Twitter. "Reporters stationed in Palm Beach have been told a statement from the former president is no longer expected."
