Jeffrey Wright, Josh Gad, Patton Oswalt, Aasif Mandvi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Andy Cohen and more tweeted about Trump's address, held in New York on Wednesday morning.

Days before his inauguration day, Donald Trump delivered his first formal news conference since being elected.

The president-elect spoke to journalists at Trump Tower in New York on Wednesday morning.

During the televised presser, Trump's team addressed BuzzFeed's publishing of a report with graphic allegations, spoke on his plans for next week's inauguration and announced that David Shulkin will be his nominee for secretary of Veterans Affairs and that the Trump Organization will donate all profits from hotels from foreign governments to the US Treasury. His lawyer also explained how he'd separate himself from the vast business holdings of the Trump Organization while president.

He also commented on his ties with Russia, further stated that he won't release his tax returns and said he turned down a deal with Dubai that was worth $2 million. Additionally, he clashed with CNN's Jim Acosta (calling him "fake news) and ended the presser with his Apprentice catchphrase: "You're fired."
