President Trump made good on his promise to release a majority of the 60 Minutes interview with Leslie Stahl before it was scheduled to air on Sunday. Trump released 38 minutes of footage Thursday.

The president eventually walked out of the interview and later tweeted that Stahl was “fake” and “biased” and encouraged people to compare his interview to that of his Democratic challenger Joe Biden who was also interviewed for the show.

“Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS. Tonight’s anchor, Kristen Welker, is far worse! #MAGA,” Trump wrote on Twitter, linking to a video of the interview. Welker will anchor Thursday night’s presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee.

Stahl started the interview asking Trump, “are you ready for some tough questions?” At one-point Trump told Stahl that she had a “negative attitude.” It is rare for a president to release footage of an interview before it airs on broadcast television.  

The interview will air in its entirety on CBS at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday evening.

CBS released some footage from Sunday’s 60 Minutes interview with President Donald Trump.

The network revealed parts of the interview during Thursday’s CBS This Morning. Stahl asked Trump about domestic priorities and about the country’s greatest foreign adversary. One part showed Stahl disputing Trump’s assertion that he was leading the best economy ever.

After the network released the footage Thursday, Trump doubled down on his original threat to release the entire interview. “I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted “takeout” interview,” he tweeted.

Trump left his interview with Stahl early and did not return to tape an appearance with Vice President Mike Pence. The president accused Stahl of not wearing a mask, CBS disputes that saying that she did wear a mask but removed it once she entered the White House and social distancing began.

The episode will air on Sunday and feature Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Vice President Mike Pence.

“In what was perhaps the most consequential tweet sent since election day, President Trump gave the go-ahead for the transition,” Ingraham said. “And as unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight.”

“Now, legal challenges continue in a number of states. Serious questions about vote counting, poll watcher access are outstanding. But unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and frankly unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.”
