After a flurry of executive orders in his first five days in office, President Donald Trump will sit down for his first one-on-one interview since his inauguration. The interview will be with ABC World News anchor David Muir and airs on ABC at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 25. Read on for a preview of the special, titled President Trump: The First Interview.
The interview with Trump comes after a busy first working days for Trump. His first executive order focused on “minimizing the burden” of the Affordable Care Act on states before Congress repeals it. He’s also signed presidential memorandums to resume construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline.
All of these will be topics for the interview, as well as Trump’s voter fraud investigation, his plans to build a wall on the Mexican border and curtailing immigration.
In the interview, Trump tells Muir that he thinks waterboarding works, although he will rely on CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis for advice.
“I will rely on Pompeo and Mattis and my group. And if they don’t want to do, that’s fine. If they do wanna do, then I will work toward that end. I want to do everything within the bounds of what you’re allowed to do legally,” Trump exclusively told Muir. “But do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works.”
