Sinclair Broadcasting to host Trump town hall at White House Wednesday night
President Trump will appear in a Sinclair Broadcast Group town hall Wednesday night at the White House, according to the media company, with former Fox News host Eric Bolling slated to moderate the one-hour event.
The town hall will feature questions from the audience, as well as an interview with the president, Sinclair said.
“This election is one of the most important in modern history and voters are still looking for insight into the many issues that are impacting their daily lives,” Bolling, the host of “America This Week” on Sinclair, said in a statement. “We aim to give Sinclair viewers the answers to their most burning questions and look forward to getting a detailed view on what the next four years would look like under President Trump.”
Bolling said in a Monday tweet he will announce the topics he plans to broach with the president “imminently.”

The town hall air at 8 p.m. ET across the Sinclair’s CW and MYNET stations in 55 markets.
The company says it also extended a standing invitation to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“Vice President Biden has a standing, open invitation to join us whenever is most convenient for him, whether that be on America This Week or in an interview with one of our many excellent stations as he has already done numerous times,” said Sinclair’s vice president of news, Scott Livingston.
“We have been in touch with his team and we are hopeful that we will be able to feature him and bring his policy positions directly to the voters in a similar fashion,” he added.
The town hall is scheduled one day before Trump and Biden square off Thursday night in their second and final debate of the election season in Nashville, Tenn.
