Trump ends interview with '60 minutes' abruptly, reports say

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

United States President Donald Trump abruptly ended an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes that is set to air this Sunday local time.

The president sent out a tweet at around 4 p.m. ET showing footage of Stahl not wearing a mask, with the caption: "Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me".

Trump criticized her for not wearing a mask after the interview, with White House Deputy Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt adding that Stahl had criticized her for not wearing a mask earlier that day.

On Tuesday, United States President Donald trump abruptly ended an interview with U.S. based News media channel and added that he is considering releasing the video of his interview ahead of the broadcast time for the sake of accuracy in reporting.

According to CBS, Trump's tweet on Tuesday evening featuring a video clip of Stahl was filmed after the interview wrapped.

"I'm guessing from this tweet that Stahl asked really tough questions, like she did in her last interview, which was one of the best with Trump to date", CBS News White House correspondent Kathryn Watson said.

With just two weeks left until the U.S. election, President Donald Trump has reportedly walked out of a television interview and launched a tirade about it on social media.


Trump addressed it during the campaign rally on Tuesday.

60 Minutes said the White House agreed only to record the interview for its archives. "You'll get such a kick out of it".

"You're gonna get such a kick out of it".

When Trump first walked in, Stahl looked at him and said, "Are you ready for a tough interview?" Pence instead taped his interview solo. "Lesley's a bad example for mask wearing, Kaitlan - don't follow her lead!"

But Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller refuted the account, saying that the interview did not end abruptly.

Tuesday's interview is Stahl's third with the president. The President reportedly told CBS that he believed they had enough material to use.

The President has continued to take aim at "60 Minutes" reporter Leslie Stahl via Twitter.
