’60 Minutes’ just got trumped.
President Trump sat down with Lesley Stahl from “60 Minutes” for a much-anticipated interview that will air on Sunday — ten days before the November election.
“60 Minutes” is notorious for cutting and editing their interviews with conservatives to make them look their worst. Does anyone doubt they would do this with their interview with President Trump?
Following the interview today President Trump tweeted out a photo of liberal reporter Stahl chatting away in the White House after the interview without mask.
And then later that afternoon President Trump threatened to release the entire interview with Stahl before “60 Minutes” is able to smear him.
The Trump campaign released the FULL interview today.
Stahl’s interview with the president is scheduled to release Sunday. Trump left the interview after 45 minutes and never returned for a post-interview walk-and-talk with Stahl and Vice President Mike Pence. Neither the White House nor Stahl have offered any details as to what topics or questions led to the cut-off, though Trump called it a “fake and biased interview.”
This is not the first time Trump has had a contentious interview with Stahl. He previously interviewed with her for ’60 Minutes’ in 2018 in a wide-ranging conversation featuring testy back-and-forth moments.
can't imagine anything more "contextual" than the entire, unedited interview. https://t.co/x1oqv01jbe
