Trump slams door to TV interview, then broadcasts it himself

For CBS, the President’s release of the video is “unprecedented”. This Thursday, US President Donald Trump implemented his threat to make public his own video of the interview, not yet broadcast, that the American channel made of him, and of which he slammed the door accusing the journalist of bias.

Donald Trump explained in a tweet that he wanted to anticipate the broadcast of the interview on Sunday on the show “60 Minutes” in order to expose the “bias, hatred and rudeness” of the channel.

The 40-minute raw video, posted by the president on his Facebook page, in contravention of the deal between the White House and the channel, appears to show the interview from start to finish, and reveals a frustrated Donald Trump by the tone of the questions.

“We never ask him such tough questions”

The journalist, Leslie Stahl, reminds him several times and questions his answers to certain sensitive subjects, such as the management of the coronavirus pandemic. The President ends up announcing that he is canceling the part of the interview during which he was to be joined by Vice President Mike Pence.

“Your first sentence was: The questions are going to be tough. I don’t mind, but when you arranged the interview, you didn’t say that. You said Oh, let’s do a cool interview He says. Donald Trump also complains that CBS and other media do not address such difficult questions to his Democratic rival Joe Biden. “I’ve seen all of his interviews. We never ask him such tough questions, ”said the president, who was again declared negative for the coronavirus on Thursday, according to his team.

CBS also interviewed Joe Biden for “60 Minutes”. The interview will air on Sunday. Donald Trump’s broadcast of his own interview, recorded Tuesday at the White House, comes a few hours before his final debate with Joe Biden. The two candidates find themselves this Thursday evening in front of millions of viewers for a televised duel which could offer the last great opportunity for the American president to catch up in the polls 12 days before the poll.
