The tradition of a presidential pre-sport interview started in 2004, when Jim Nantz interviewed President George W. Bush. Barack Obama was as soon as interviewed in 2009 by Matt Lauer. Obama persisted the tradition one day of his presidency.
Donald Trump also did pre-sport sitdowns, starting with a sitdown with Bill O’Reilly in 2017 when Fox had the rights that year. Trump skipped the next year, 2018, when NBC had the rights, but returned the next year. In 2019 he sat down with CBS’s Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan. Trump spoke to Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an interviewed that aired before the 2020 Sizable Bowl.
