President Barack Obama will hold his final press conference of the year Friday afternoon.

Obama will take questions from the press before his family’s trip to Hawaii over the holidays. He’ll likely field questions about his new promise that the U.S. will retaliate against Russia for its suspected interference in the U.S. election process.

“Some of it may be explicit and publicized, some of it may not be,” Obama told NPR Thursday of the action against Russia. “But Mr. Putin is well aware of my feelings about this, because I spoke to him directly about it.”

The press conference is scheduled to begin at 2:15 p.m. ET. You can watch the live stream above.
