“Fox & Friends” co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade will travel to the White House for a sit-down interview with President Trump that will air on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
Trump has repeatedly called other news organizations “fake news,” while recently praising the Fox News Morning show as “great.”

POTUS is expected to preview his upcoming address to the Joint Session of Congress during the interview, in addition to discussing a wide-variety of topics, including his immigration policy, tax reform and the economy.
This will be President Trump’s first morning show appearance since his inauguration. “Fox & Friends” has been friendly to the Trump administration, while cable news rivals “Morning Joe” and “New Day” attack POTUS on a regular basis.
Trump regularly points out ratings. Fittingly, he has chosen the most-watched morning show in cable news to make his debut. Fox News finished the week of Feb. 13-18 as the No. 1 network among all of basic cable in both total viewers and prime-time viewers, marking the fifth-straight week that FNC has won both categories.
Fox News averaged 1.73 million sets of eyeballs to beat Nickelodeon’s 1.1 million. Cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC finished third and fourth, respectively, despite failing to average over one million viewers.
