President Trump published the unedited version of 60 minutes interview with CBS’s Lesley Stahl before it could be taken to air on Sunday. They claimed Trump dramatically walked out, but that turned out to not be exactly true.
After about 20 minutes of sparring with Lesley, Trump began visibly frustrated and called her out on her bias in the middle of the interview.
“I wish you would interview Joe Biden like you interview me,” Trump said, complaining about how his opponent is undergoing a massive scandal while nobody in the media seems to be asking him about it.
“He’s in the midst of a scandal,” Trump continued, before being cut off by Stahl.
“He’s not,” Stahl interrupted. “He’s not. No.”
“You’re like Big Tech. You’re protecting him,” Trump said, going on to outline several of the questionable transactions recently revealed by Senate investigators and the New York Post in recent weeks to a defiant Stahl. “Do you think it’s okay for the mayor of Moscow’s wife to give him millions and millions of dollars? … Do you think it’s OK for Hunter Biden to say we’re giving the ”Big Guy’ 10 percent of this massive amount of money?”

“The biggest scandal,” Trump said however, “was when they spied on my campaign.”
Stahl dismissed the claim.
“There’s no real evidence of that,” Stahl responded, telling the president that the network would not be airing anything it “can’t verify.”
“You won’t put it on because it’s bad for Biden,” Trump said.
