The interview will be taped Friday. In addition to the 45th POTUS, the interview also will include members of the Trump family including his children Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, who Trump has said will manage his companies in that “blind trust” while he serves as POTUS.
The news comes the same day President-elect Trump met with President Obama in the White House. The scheduled 15-minute meeting went for about 90 minutes and focused on transition plans.
“This was a meeting that was going to last for maybe 10 or 15 minutes, and we were just going to get to know each other,” Trump said after the White House meeting. “We had never met each other. I have great respect. The meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half. And it could have — as far as I’m concerned, it could have gone on for a lot longer.
“We really — we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. I very much look forward to dealing with the President in the future, including counsel. He explained some of the difficulties, some of the high-flying assets and some of the really great things that have been achieved.”
