President Donald Trump sat down with CBS News’ Margaret Brennan for a wide-ranging interview ahead of today’s Super Bowl.

Donald Trump Super Bowl Pregame Interview Preview

President Trump spoke with Margaret Brennan, the moderator of Face the Nation on CBS News, for about an hour on February 1 in the White House Blue Room. CBS News released previews of their discussion, which covered a wide range of topics.

One of the issues discussed at length was the government shutdown. A bipartisan committee of lawmakers, with members from both the House and Senate, is working to reach a deal on border security. But if the committee cannot reach a compromise that Congress and the president can agree on, the government could shut down again on February 15. President Trump has suggested that he may declare a national emergency unless Democrats agree to fund a wall. In a transcript released February 3 by CBS News, Brennan asked, “Would you shut down the government again?” The president answered in part, “I don’t take anything off the table. I don’t like to take things off the table. It’s that alternative. It’s national emergency, it’s other things and you know there have been plenty of national emergencies called. And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers.”

Democrats have offered additional funds for border security, but the two sides have remained deadlocked about paying for the physical barrier the president wants. In the interview with Brennan, President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, using language that suggests a bipartisan deal is unlikely. He accused her of wanting “open borders” and that she “doesn’t mind human trafficking.” The clip is embedded above. In response, Speaker Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff accused the president of “undermining” the compromise talks.

The president also addressed disagreements he has with the intelligence chiefs. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and FBI Director Christopher Wray testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on January 29. They explained that ISIS remains a threat, that Iran is abiding by the terms of the nuclear agreement, and that North Korea is continuing efforts to build up its weapons arsenal. President Trump told Brennan that he does not always need to agree with his intelligence chiefs.

Brennan also asked the president his thoughts on the growing field of candidates vying to be the Democratic nominee in 2020. In a preview clip, President Trump said he thinks Senator Cory Booker has “no chance.” But he has expressed respect for Senator Kamala Harris. He told the New York Times that Senator Harris had a “better opening act than others” and inspired “better enthusiasm” from her crowds. You can read the full transcript released by CBS News here.

It has become a tradition for the president of the United States to give an interview ahead of the Super Bowl with a reporter from whichever network is broadcasting the game. President George W. Bush began the practice in 2004 when he sat down with sportscaster Jim Nantz. President Obama participated each year during his two terms. President Trump spoke with Bill O’Reilly in 2017 but did not participate in 2018 when NBC hosted the Super Bowl.
