Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are hosting back-to-back conferences about disinformation in the days following Donald Trump‘s ‘big announcement.’
Bush, 76, will host his The Struggle for Freedom conference in Dallas on November 16, while Obama’s democracy conference will be held in New York City on the 17th.
Trump’s big announcement – largely rumored to be his 2024 presidential campaign announcement – is set for Tuesday.
