’60 Minutes’ Will Run Trump Interview Sunday, Despite President’s Release of Footage

"The White House's unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting", the broadcaster said in a statement.

I think it shows him complaining and avoiding, repeatedly, answers to questions such as how he'll provide insurance for pre-existing conditions if, as he said he hoped, the U.S. Supreme Court kills the Affordable Care Act. "We have enough", Trump said in the video, when he ended the sit-down with the "60 Minutes" journalist, as a production assistant noted that Vice President Mike Pence would join the interview in five minutes.

Their interview lasted about 40 minutes, with a contentious back-and-forth between Trump and Stahl mostly about his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, before the president walked out before she finished with her questions.

The president has previously said that he has considered publishing the interview himself. CBS correspondent Lesley Stahl asks President Donald Trump seconds before they began rolling for an exclusive "60 Minutes" interview set to air on CBS this Sunday.

And he again preemptively criticized the moderator of Thursday's final presidential debate.

Trump then said that the only reason that's true is because testing rates are going up - a claim that has been debunked many times by a number of fact-checking websites. "That's enough. Let's Go".

From there, Trump spent much of the interview accusing Stahl of being biased and "negative" with her questioning.

In the video, Stahl asks the president about his political rallies, noting the size of the gatherings and the presence of people not wearing face masks to keep from spreading coronavirus.

"60 MINUTES, the most-watched news program on television, is widely respected for bringing its hallmark fairness, deep reporting and informative context to viewers each week", CBS asserted.

60 Minutes is among the most-watched news shows on United States television and is particularly popular among seniors.

It's baffling to think that Trump thought that any of this disastrous interview would be flattering to him, and given that he had no idea what CBS would choose to show or not show, it's even more bonkers that he thinks that providing people with this footage in its damning entirety will do anything but hurt him more. "The American people want a president who will put the health of America first and open up America's economy".

"Not from me, the public, and I feel you didn't do that and I'm upset".

Stahl replied: "Look at what you're doing right now". You're giving a speech.
