Fox News has announced that President Trump will sit down with Sean Hannity for an interview in front of a live audience. Set to air October 4th at 9 p.m., the interview will take place at the Morgantown Theatre in West Virginia with an audience made up of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. There will also be an audience Q&A session.
The interview, which will be pre-taped, is expected to cover tax reform, the economy and what they are calling the ‘news of the day’, which could mean the crisis in Puerto Rico, the resignation of former Health and Human Services Director Tom Price, the President’s battle with NFL players or the Russian election tampering case.
Trump has appeared on Hannity previously, once during the Republican primaries and again after the inauguration. Hannity has been a strong supporter of the President through both his candidacy and now that he’s in office. Back in July, Donald Trump Jr. appeared on the show to talk about the meeting with the Russian lawyer that was said to be about adoption. The appearance delivered strong ratings in the 10 pm time slot that it aired.
The choice of West Virginia as the venue is not surprising, as it was a very red state in this past election. Trump received almost 69% of the vote compared to the 26% received by his opponent Hillary Clinton.
