Trump Abruptly Ends Interview With Leslie Stahl: “You’ll Have To Watch What We Do To  60 Minutes”


President Trump abruptly ended an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” Tuesday and did not return for an appearance he was supposed to tape with Vice President Mike Pence, various sources reported. 

After camera crews set up at the White House on Monday, Trump sat down with host Lesley Stahl for about 45 minutes on Tuesday before he abruptly ended the interview and told the network he believed they had enough material to use.Shortly after the news broke, Donald Trump said he may release the CBS interview ahead of its airtime on Sunday, saying it would show bias by the reporter, Lesley Stahl and added that “everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!”

In an earlier tweet, Trump criticized Stahl for not wearing a face mask after their interview, hinting that the conversation was “contentious.”

Bloomberg quoted a person familiar with the matter who said that Stahl exceeded a time limit for the interview agreed to with the White House, angering Trump who refused to record a “walk-and-talk” segment with Stahl.

This is not the first time Trump has had a contentious interview with Stahl: his previously interviewed her in 2018 in a wide-ranging conversation featuring testy back and forth moments.  During the interview Stahl attempted to change the subject after Trump made a comment about media dishonesty, but the president clearly wanted to make a point about the media criticizing his administration for its child separation policy that had also taken place under former President Obama.

“I’m gonna change the subject again,” Stahl said.

“Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like, about separation,” Trump insisted. “When I say Obama did it, you don’t wanna talk about it.”

After Stahl told the president they would run his answer, Trump continued: “When I say I did it, let’s make a big deal of it.”

Lesley Stahl: I’m gonna run your answer, but you did it four times, so.

President Trump: I’m just telling you that you treated me much differently on the subject.

Lesley Stahl: I disagree, but I don’t wanna have that fight with you.

President Trump: Hey, it’s okay–

Lesley Stahl: All right, I’ll get in another fight with you–

At which point the president ended the discussion: “Lesley, it’s okay. In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.”

Hinting at what’s coming next, during a rally in Erie, Pennsylvania late on Tuesday, Trump told the crowd “You’ll have to watch what we do to 60 Minutes.”
