While Trump argued that "bias, hatred and rudeness" was present throughout the interview, upon watching it's plainly obvious that Stahl is simply doing her job.
When someone from Trump's team interrupted to give a five-minute time warning, Trump said that they had talked enough and felt it was time to wrap up.
Addressing a campaign rally Wednesday in Gastonia, North Carolina, Trump says Stahl pressed him on his plea for love from suburban women, many of whom have turned away from the president. White House staff typically record interviews with the president independently to ensure accuracy, though it's unclear if they would have a video recording of Trump's sit down with Stahl or whether it would be violating an embargo agreed to with the program.
U.S. President Donald Trump has released an unedited interview with "60 Minutes" anchor Lesley Stahl before its scheduled Sunday broadcast after complaining she was biased against him.
"He's in the midst of a scandal", Trump continued, before being cut off by Stahl.
The video released by Trump was filmed by White House staffers. He takes her to task over subjects that were "inappropriately brought up, right from the beginning", and hints that Stahl set up the interview under false pretences, claiming that she had said it was going to be "lovely".
Stahl asked Mr Trump about his demeanour on social media and whether he felt responsible for deep divisions between Americans.
Trump refused to participate in the joint interview with Vice President Mike Pence.
President Trump's campaign and North Carolina's Republican legislative leaders asked the US Supreme Court on Thursday to return the state to a shorter deadline for accepting late-arriving absentee ballots postmarked by Election Day.
"You said to me, 'I say that, because I need to discredit you so that when you say negative things about me, no one will believe you, '" Stahl said. It's abundantly clear from the get-go that Trump thinks a "fair" interview is one where he's allowed to lie, misdirect, deflect, and not be forced to talk about things that make him look bad, like his disastrous response on the coronavirus pandemic.
CBS News called the White House's decision to release the interview "unprecedented", but said the interview would still air on Sunday (local time) as planned.
Talking about COVID-19, Trump said that Biden should take a look at what's happening in several states, including MI.
"I think we have enough of an interview here. OK? That's enough. Let's go".
"Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS", Trump said in post on his Twitter profile on Thursday morning, with a link to his Facebook page, where he posted the almost 38 minute interview.
