Today Show to Host Donald Trump Town Hall

By Chris Ariens 

In the interest of equal time–and, more importantly, ratings–NBC’s Today show will air a live town hall with Donald Trump from New Hampshire Monday, Oct. 26. Matt Lauer will moderate.

The Trump town hall follows the Today show’s town hall with Hillary Clinton on Oct. 5 which was moderated by Savannah Guthrie.

Lauer will also sit down with Trump for a live one-on-one interview prior to the town hall.

Despite cutting business ties with Trump in June due to comments he made during his presidential announcement, NBC has been warming up to the GOP front-runner and ratings draw. On Tuesday, the network announced Trump will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7.
