It’s a tradition that the sitting President gives an interview before the Super Bowl.
You might remember Bill O’Reily interviewing Barack Obama or many other famous pre-Super Bowl interviews.
And President Trump did not disappoint this year, making some headlines already!
Trump ripped Pelosi, saying her inaction on the border wall was contributing to human trafficking, one of the strongest statements yet from our President!
And here’s more from Trump on Pelosi:
I think that she was very rigid which I would expect. She is very bad for our country. She knows you need a barrier. She knows we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this. She is costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what’s happening is when you have a porous border and when you have drugs pouring in and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don’t want to give proper border security for political reasons she is doing a terrible disservice to our country.
Here's more on the interview from CBS:
Days before a State of the Union address in which he's expected to stress unity, President Trump said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "very bad for the country," in an exclusive interview with CBS News "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan.
The president also suggested Pelosi "doesn't mind human trafficking," or she wouldn't oppose funding his border wall. Mr. Trump sat down for nearly an hour in the White House Blue Room Friday afternoon in a wide-ranging interview that will air on "Face the Nation" Sunday morning and prior to the Super Bowl.
"Well, I think that she was very rigid — which I would expect — but I think she's very bad for our country," the president said, when asked what he learned after negotiating with Pelosi in recent weeks. "She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it's very bad politics because basically, she wants open borders. She doesn't mind human trafficking or she wouldn't do this."
Brennan's interview with the president comes days before his first State of the Union address in a divided government, and two weeks before government funding for several federal departments and agencies runs out on Feb. 15. The president continues to insist on billions for his border wall and has threatened to declare a national emergency at the border, which would give him the unilateral authority to use military funds to build a wall without a congressional appropriation. Pelosi postponed his State of the Union speech, which would have taken place this week, citing the government shutdown. She then re-invited the president to deliver his address Tuesday.
Mr. Trump said Thursday he doesn't think lawmakers will reach a deal to fund his border wall. Mr. Trump told Brennan that Pelosi is doing a "terrible disservice to our country."
"She's — she's costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what's happening is, when you have a porous border and when you have drugs pouring in, and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons — she's doing a terrible disservice to our country," the president told Brennan Friday.
Pelosi's deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill responded to the president's remarks, saying, "The president knows, bluster aside, that Democrats are committed to securing our borders while upholding our values as a nation. The president should stop undermining bipartisan efforts to do just that."
