NewsNation Lands Sit-Down Interview With President Trump Since Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Death

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Less than a month after launching, NewsNation has landed the first prime-time interview with President Donald Trump since Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s death last Friday.

Anchor Joe Donlon will sit down with Trump at the White House and the interview will air on Tuesday starting at 8 p.m. The network, which has promised to stick to facts, said it will run the interview in its entirety, with almost no editing.

“NewsNation is pleased to bring its viewers an in-depth interview with President Trump just weeks before the election and following the passing of Justice Ginsburg,” said Jennifer Lyons, vp of news for WGN America. “This is an interview with no restrictions on the questions asked or topics covered, and the president and Joe will cover a lot of ground beyond the Supreme Court and the November election. In keeping with our mission, NewsNation will air the interview in its entirety, with minimal editing, so that our viewers can see and hear everything the president has to say. We have extended a similar invitation to former Vice President Joe Biden and are hopeful that he, too, will agree to be interviewed.”


NewsNation airs on WGN America, Nexstar’s news network.
