Audience members, including Democrats, Republicans and independents, will also get the chance to ask the president questions of their own. 

The interview comes as Trump and congressional Republicans seek to pivot their agenda toward tax reform. The president laid out a broad plan to overhaul the nation's tax code this week during a speech in Indianapolis. 

Republican lawmakers have largely unified behind that plan, which calls for slashing individual and business tax rates, and reducing the number of tax brackets from seven to three. 

But Democrats have already indicated that they are likely to put up a fight over the proposal, which they say is a massive windfall for the wealthiest Americans and would balloon the national deficit.
