President Trump shares photos from '60 Minutes' interview

Share

On Thursday, a 38-minute clip of the interview was shared to Trump's Facebook page, alongside the comment, "Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS".

CBS News called the White House's decision to release the interview "unprecedented", but said the interview would still air on Sunday (local time) as planned.

CBS has released clips of its upcoming episode of "60 Minutes" featuring new interviews with President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Trump was rankled by and defensive of Lesley Stahl's questioning about coronavirus and suburban women from the outset of the interview because she continued to fact check him throughout.

If Donald Trump's "60 Minutes" interview with Lesley Stahl ever actually sees the light of day, it promises to contain plenty of moments he'd rather people not see, which explains his tweetstorm threatening to release the footage himself.

It shows Trump repeatedly expressing frustration with Stahl's questions, and her efforts to challenge his misleading statements.

Trump said on the tape that the country has "turned a corner" in its battle with the pandemic and that he believes masks are an effective tool to prevent transmission. She also told him during the interview that allegations about Biden's son, Hunter Biden, were not verified and that the Obama administration did not spy on the Trump campaign.

Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden will hold the final United States presidential campaign debate today.

John Lewis Partnership targets net zero carbon by 2035
The partnership, which reported a first-half loss of £635m last month, is also seeking efficiency savings of £300m a year by 2022. We've seen five years of change in the past five months and Waitrose and John Lewis have responded with great agility.

Filmed on Tuesday, Trump's sit-down with Stahl stoked controversy from the start. "Let's go." He then points to someone off camera and says "let's meet for 2 seconds" before standing up and leaving.

"Well, Lesley, I appreciate the speech that you just gave", Mr Pence replied.

"If elected, what I will do is I'll put together a national commission of - bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative", the former vice president said. "You're gonna get a kick out of it. Lesley Stahl's not gonna be happy", he added, reported Newsweek.

All four are scheduled to appear on "60 Minutes" on Sunday. "He just made it transparently obvious to the American people that his only plan for health care is to take away yours", Wessel said.

Stahl doesn't seem to be satisfied with this claim, and she continues to press him.

She said she was upset by how the interviews had gone. Three aides, who were not authorized to speak publicly, said the president overreacted, and one suggested that he might actually boost the ratings of a tough interview. "The way you have, it is like I'm begging".

"Your first statement to me was 'This is going to be tough questions.' I don't mind that".
