New York - With his re-election campaign officially launched, President Donald Trump is interacting with media organizations that reach beyond his base.

He’s booked an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday and has done an interview with Telemundo — two of the three networks that will simulcast next week’s first debate among Democratic presidential contenders.

Trump also sat for a Time magazine cover story, and his interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos made news all last weekend.

For much of his presidency, Trump has focused the bulk of his interview time on friendly outlets, most notably Fox News Channel. Outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has given up regular press briefings, and many of her meetings with reporters come after she’s done a satellite interview with Fox.

It's about time that Trump was interviewed by actual journalists instead of by the pundits at Fox who at times even helped him answer their own questions. Every previous President was interviewed by many different journalists and didn't have a favored network.
