President Biden will sit down with Lester Holt of NBC News for an exclusive interview that will air Monday, the network announced Wednesday.

Monday evening is also the first night of the Republican National Convention, creating a potential split-screen moment for the country as voters weigh a match-up between Biden and former President Trump this fall.
