Tonight at 10:00 P.M. EST, President Donald Trump will answer questions for the first time since becoming commander in chief. ABC’s David Muir, an anchor of the network’s World News Tonight, is the first to interview Trump in an hour-long segment called President Trump: The First Interview. The interview will take place inside the White House. According to ABC, Muir will ask a “wide range of questions” and would leave nothing embargoed.
A lot has happened in the fives days since Trump was inaugurated. The following day of the inauguration was the Women’s March, which took place in over 50 cities and garnered the enthusiasm of over 2 million people worldwide. However, Trump has yet to acknowledge any of these events and instead has been targeting the media for “lying” about the number of attendees at his inauguration. His latest attack has been on voter fraud, an issue that seems to be very important to him and only him. Hopefully, Muir will hold Trump accountable and ask him about the different policies that he has already put into effect, including the Global Gag Rule, which bans medical officials from suggesting abortion, as well as the silencing of the National Parks social media in discussing climate change.
