President Barack Obama will appear on CBS’ “60 Minutes” for his final presidential interview with a network television on Sunday, five days before transferring power to his successor, Donald Trump. The outgoing president will be speaking to Steve Kroft in an hour-long special broadcast.

The interview conducted this week at the White House will cover a wide range of topics, including Obama’s thoughts on the president-elect. According to CBS, the interview will follow the president’s journey, “in his own words,” beginning with his presidential bid in 2007 through his two terms in the Oval Office.

Obama had appeared on “60 Minutes” in his first post-election interview as president-elect in November 2008. He had also spoken to Kroft in March 2009 about his first two months as commander-in-chief and discussed the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011. His last interview with the show aired in October 2015 during which he discussed the Syrian war and Russia’s involvement in the conflict.

Earlier this week, the 44th president gave his farewell address in Chicago in which he thanked his peers, family, staff and the American people. Nearly 18,000 gathered at McCormick Place — the same venue where the president made his victory speech after defeating former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 race — to witness Obama’s final address as president.

In his nearly hour-long speech on Tuesday, Obama urged the crowd and everyone else watching him on TV to protect their democracy.

“Understand, democracy does not require uniformity. Our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity – the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one,” Obama said.

The “60 Minutes” interview will air Sunday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. EST on CBS. The episode can be live-streamed here.
