Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, will discuss his federal budget plans in a live studio interview at 5 p.m. EST tomorrow, Dec. 1, as part of Fiscal Fridays, the public affairs television series on the New Hampshire-based NH1 News Network.
In the interview, which will also be aired this Friday, Dec. 4, Trump will respond to questions about the growing national debt and the specific fiscal and economic policies he would pursue as president.
The program can be seen and heard live on WBIN-TV, 99.1 NH1 News, and on the NH1 website. A video will be available later on both NH1 and First Budget‘s websites.
Fiscal Fridays — a project of First Budget, a joint nonpartisan initiative of the Campaign to Fix the Debt and The Concord Coalition — gives New Hampshire primary voters and the country at large the opportunity to hear directly from the candidates on the policies they would include in their first budget as president. Other co-sponsors of the series are NH1, the Business and Industry Association ofNew Hampshire, and the Warren B. Rudman Center at the University of New Hampshire’s Law School.
Questions for Trump can be submitted via Twitter to @NH1News or with the hashtag #FiscalFriday.
Paul Steinhauser, political director and anchor for NH1, is conducting the half-hour live television interviews. Videos of previous candidate interviews on Fiscal Fridays can be found here.
“With the federal debt continuing to grow on an unsustainable path, it is essential for the 2016 presidential candidates to clearly explain their budget plans to the public and to ensure that those plans will put the country on a more responsible course,” said Robert L. Bixby, Concord’s executive director. “The Fiscal Fridays interview series is helping voters around the country understand and evaluate the candidates’ proposals.”
The Concord Coalition is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to fiscal responsibility. Since 1992, Concord has worked to educate the public about the causes and consequences of the federal deficit and debt, and to develop realistic solutions for sustainable budgets.
