Trump to lunch with network anchors

US President Donald Trump is set to have an off-the-record lunch with network anchors, a White House official confirmed.

The lunch is expected to cover Trump’s upcoming foreign trip to the Middle East, Politico news reported.

The get-together is expected to be much smaller than past lunches with the media.

Ahead of his address to the joint session of Congress in February, Trump met some two dozen anchors from cable, broadcast, Hispanic and other networks.
