Trump To Make First Appearance On NBC’s ‘Meet The Press’ Since Being Elected


President Donald Trump is set to appear on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, which will be his first interview on the network since 2017.

It will also be the president’s first-ever appearance on the show since 2015, CNN reported Thursday.

The interview will take place just three days before the first Democratic primary debate hosted by NBC in downtown Miami. The debate will feature 10 candidates on the first night and ten more on the second.

Trump took part in an in-depth interview with ABC New’s George Stephanopoulos, who had three days of access to the president, last week. The hour-long special covered topics from obstruction of justice to theoretically taking opposition research from foreign entities to UFO sightings.

The president tweeted after his ABC special was released that he would be participating in more future interviews with the network.

I enjoyed my interview with @GStephanopoulos on @ABC,” he wrote. “So funny to watch the Fake News Media try to dissect & distort every word in as negative a way as possible.”

“Think I will do many more Network Interviews, as I did in 2016, in order to get the word out that no President has done what I have in the first 2 1/2 years of his Presidency,” he continued, “including the fact that we have one of the best Economies in the history of our Country. It is called Earned Media. In any event, enjoy the show!”

The president previously mocked “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd in September 2018 after the NBC host called on members of the media to fight back against Trump’s administration.

“Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Fake NBC News said it’s time for the Press to stop complaining and to start fighting back,” Trump tweeted. “Actually Chuck, they’ve been doing that from the day I announced for President. They’ve gone all out, and I WON, and now they’re going CRAZY!”
