Obama on TODAY: Savannah Guthrie to interview president amid DNC

Update 7/27: Watch Savannah's interview with President Obama

As his party convenes a historic nominating convention in Philadelphia, President Barack Obama will speak exclusively with TODAY's Savannah Guthrie.

The pair will sit down at the White House for an interview to air Wednesday on TODAY, the same day President Obama addresses the Democratic National Convention. A portion of the interview will be broadcast during Tuesday night's prime-time coverage of the event.


The interview comes as Democrats move to officially confirm Hillary Clinton as the party's nominee — the first female presidential nominee from a major party — and amid uproar over the leaking of emails which appear to show party efforts to sabotage Bernie Sanders' campaign.

Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has since said she plans to step down at the end of the convention.

In a string of tweets, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump branded Wasserman Schultz as "overrated" and said the Democratic party was "in a total meltdown."
