Trump Storms Out of 60 Minutes Interview, Threatens to Release Footage Ahead of Schedule

The President is NOT playing around this week.

The adversarial relationship between the press and the President has taken another turn for the worse this week, after an interview segment on 60 Minutes went off the rails.

The President is undoubtedly looking for last-minute bump in the polls before the November 3rd election, after a slew of new polls seem to indicate that his path to reelection is still fairly narrow.  (Of course, it should be noted that there are only a few key differences between the polls this year and the polls from 2016, which has given a great many Trump supporters hope).

Given just how dire the situation appears to be, at least from certain angles, it’s no surprise that the President would opt to appear on 60 Minutes, which is currently one of the most-watched news programs in all of the country.

But what took place on the set of that interview was far from what the President was hoping for.

President Trump threatened to release an interview he granted “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl ahead of Sunday’s airing, suggesting he would expose how “fake and biased” the sitdown was.

Trump sat down with the veteran journalist at the White House on Tuesday, which is set to air Sunday, Oct. 25, along with interviews with Vice President Mike Pence, Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, and Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris.

The president wants to scoop CBS by sharing his interview before the network does.

“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!” Trump posted on Twitter. “This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about.”

Sources close to the President and the interview have suggested that Stahl’s questioning was heavily focused on COVID-19 and the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic – something that some Trump supporters believe is being overhyped by the media in order to affect his standing in the 2020 race.
