Trump Attacks '60 Minutes' Host Lesley Stahl After Walking Out on Interview

President Donald Trump has launched an attack against Lesley Stahl, the veteran host of CBS’ 60 Minutes, after he cut their interview short.

Stahl was at the White House for an interview with the president on Tuesday (October 20) and it is being reported that “Mr. Trump had grown irritated with Ms. Stahl’s lines of questioning,” according to the New York Times.

After filming for 45 minutes with Stahl and the CBS News crew, Trump decided to cut the interview short and he declined to do a “walk and talk” segment. It was reported that “the taping had not wrapped up when the president’s aides had expected it to.”

Trump took to Twitter to share a video of Stahl not wearing a mask, but the Times reports that she was wearing a mask before the interview and even when she greeted the president for the first time. The video was taken immediately after the interview ended and before she put her mask back on.

“I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME! This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about,” Trump tweeted. “Everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!”
