Trump to Host a Conference Call with NASA Astronauts in International Space Station on Monday

The White House released a press release earlier on Wednesday to confirm that US President Donald Trump will host a conference call with two astronauts who are currently in International Space Station on Monday.

On Monday, NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson is set to break the record for the most cumulative days spent in the space by any US astronaut and the president will congratulate him on the feat. The press release stated, “April 24th, at 10 a.m. ET [Eastern Time], President Donald J. Trump will host a videoconference call from the Oval Office with NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer, who are currently orbiting the Earth aboard the International Space Station.”

The press release also stated that the astronauts will have a brief 20 minutes conversation with the president about life in ISS and other related topics. The conversation will be live streamed to the public on White House and other NASA online platforms.
