Trump raged up and shots down a townhall post-"60 Minutes"

The White House had kept a single-frame copy of the interview, in which only Trump is visible but Stahl can be heard asking questions.

Shortly after Trump released the video, CBS News responded, calling the decision "unprecedented", and saying the network would not be deterred from providing "full, fair and contextual reporting", and would air the slot as planned this weekend, along with a similar interview with Biden. As Trump went on with his gripes, a member of the production staff interrupted to tell Stahl that in five minutes, they would have Vice President Mike Pence come in for his part of the segment.

"Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS", Trump tweeted Thursday, posting a link to Facebook which directed viewers to a video of the interview, as filmed by a White House crew. But an agitated Trump threatened to have the interview released before the scheduled broadcast on Sunday to back up his claims that Stahl was unfair to him.

As Stahl asked Trump at the beginning of the interview if he was "ready for some tough questions", a tense Trump seemed to become more irritable.

US President Donald Trump complained the interview was biased and said journalist Lesley Stahl had taken a soft approach to rival Joe Biden.

President Donald Trump once again blasted Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer during the final presidential debate on Thursday night.

"'It's very simple, Lesley, everyone's going to get a little plastic baggie in the mail with some loose hydroxychloroquine and a half-eaten stick of Halls cough drops, '" said Meyers, imitating Trump.

"I think we have enough".

"I don't have to discredit you", Trump sniped at one point. The president also referred to emails published by the New York Post last week showing Joe Biden stood to rake in millions from Chinese businessmen with deep ties to the Chinese Communist Party funneled through Hunter. "That's enough. Let's go", he says before getting up and leaving.

Trump has often accused the U.S. media of being biased against him but releasing the interview prior to its Sunday airing is very unusual.

"No, you don't", Stahl answered.

60 Minutes is among the most-watched news shows on United States television and is particularly popular among seniors. "The American people want a president who will put the health of America first and open up America's economy". "Do you think it's okay for the mayor of Moscow's wife to give him millions and millions of dollars?" You have an incredible obligation, not to me at all, but to yourselves.
