Guthrie is expected to talk to the president about gun control, immigration reform, continued threats from North Korea as well as who might run for president in 2016, according to an NBC statement.

The presidential interview will come during a busy week in Washington.

The bipartisan “Gang of Eight” senators are expected to introduce comprehensive immigration reform legislation this week. 

In addition, action is anticipated on a gun control bill in the Senate, including a possible vote on legislation crafted by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to expand background checks for gun sales.

President Obama has made immigration reform and gun control two of his second term priorities, taking his push outside the beltway regularly to rally public support.
