"We [President Trump and Mattis] have never talked about me leaving". But Trump has got his reasons for not prioritizing climate change, and he's sticking to them.
"Many people thought it made him look better because he did answer everything correctly", she claimed, albeit falsely.
"Mr President, you've been president for two years", Colbert began.
But for a media that the U.S. president often accuses of twisting his words, and publishing "fake news" the media outlets did little to contradict his words. And, like Melania Trump's utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President's interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length. "But I don't know that it's man-made", he said. She asked him who the "they" in his statement refered to.
He called the interview "epic television" and praised how Trump repelled Stahl's contentious questioning. But I don't know that it's manmade.
"When it comes to Stahl's questions about Kim, I love the president's comment, because don't forget this president's leadership has brought three Americans home from North Korea". After Trump launched into a defense of his "very tough" meetings with Putin, Stahl began to press Trump on whether he believed or was willing to condemn various things Putin had done or was alleged to have done, including "assassinations, poisonings" and Russian Federation "interfering in the 2016 election".
Yet, the Trumps admitted that their agenda is sometimes undermined by people who are supposed to be on their team. Why should I pledge to you?
"I'm not a baby", he added. "This is a vicious place". I don't trust everybody in the White House, I'll be honest with you.
STAHL: -say China meddled too? Washington DC is a vicious, vicious place. There are many reasons that the United States should not be involved with Saudi Arabia, and especially not with supporting its war in Yemen (or its export of global terrorism). When she interview Trump in 2016 right after his win, Stahl sensed he was "surprised" by the victory. He is truly president.
