The time change was made after the White House released a statement announcing a Monday night address about Afghanistan: “President Donald J. Trump will address our Nation’s troops and the American people tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. (EDT) from Fort Myer in Arlington, VA, to provide an update on the path forward for America’s engagement in Afghanistan and South Asia.”

The town hall will air on CNN at 9:30 p.m. ET.
