Joe Biden gave his first 60 Minutes interview as President, and the sit-down will air Sunday during the show’s season premiere.
According to CBS, the president spoke with White House correspondent Scott Pelley about the economy, upcoming midterm elections and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
60 Minutes cameras also followed Biden as he toured the Detroit Auto Show in Michigan on Wednesday.
Biden has been criticized for his infrequent, on-the-record seated interviews since taking office.
In June, journalists and Republicans blasted the commander in chief for appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! being interviewed by the late-night comedian despite not giving a reporter an official seated interview in about four months.
Biden has appeared on “60 Minutes” several times before – including days before the 2020 presidential election – but Sunday will be his first appearance as president.
Pelley told People he attempted to interview the president shortly after his inauguration. He had rescheduled the interview earlier, but Biden rescheduled it due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and called personally to apologize, Pelley said.
The interview will air Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on CBS.
