Super Bowl LIII is less than two weeks away. As of now, it is unclear if the President of the United States will be making a pregame appearance.

It has become tradition for the President to give a pregame interview before the major sporting event. The custom began during George W. Bush's time in office.

According to Newsday's Neil Best, CBS has had conversations with the White House regarding an interview with President Trump, but nothing has been set in stone.

Trump turned down a pregame interview last year after doing one with FOX News' Bill O'Reilly in 2017.

Trump attended the College Football Playoff National Championship in January 2018. On Super Bowl Sunday the last two years, he has hosted a party in Florida.

Trump already tweeted a congratulatory message to the New England Patriots after their win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Given his relationships with some members of the organization, one would guess he'd be rooting for New England against the Rams.

Super Bowl LIII will take place in Atlanta on February 3.
