He told Hollywood trade paper Variety that he was looking forward to doing weightier material and longer interviews than his Late Show format allowed. "I'd like to talk to President Trump. I've known the guy for 25 to 30 years. I'd like to go back to New York where he was a kid and start there", he said.
"I'd like to just ask him about the change in him as a man, where did it come from, how did it begin, and where is it going," he added, and said that he would like to interview Pope Francis too.
