Trump abruptly ends '60 Minutes' solo interview

President Donald Trump abruptly ended a solo interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” and did not return for an appearance he was supposed to tape with Vice President Mike Pence, according to multiple sources familiar with what happened.
After camera crews set up at the White House on Monday, Trump sat down with host Lesley Stahl for about 45 minutes on Tuesday before he abruptly ended the interview and told the network he believed they had enough material to use, according to two sources.
CBS News did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment. When reached for comment, the White House did not dispute CNN’s reporting.
The President later accused Stahl of not wearing a mask and tweeted out a brief clip of her without one while at the White House.
A person familiar with the situation told CNN that the image from the tweet shows Stahl with her producers immediately after Trump ended the interview. Stahl had not yet gone back to get her personal belongings to put her mask back on. She had a mask on from the time she entered the White House and just before the interview began.
With about two weeks until the election, Trump has spent this week lobbing scatter-shot attacks and growing upset at depictions portraying his campaign as doomed. His truncated taping on “60 Minutes” seemed an extension of what has been Trump’s visible irritation as he enters the campaign’s final days.

    2020 Pandemic- most countries lock down and give extra aid to their people so they can survive. US president holds mass gatherings spreading the virus, goes to court trying to cut food assistance for millions of children and fights to terminate healthcare for millions making it harder for his people to survive.
    How dare anyone say this man is in cahoots with Putin.

    U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil's opinion (McDougal v Fox News), "[Tucker Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary."—–Fox News lawyers argued that no "reasonable viewer" would take Tucker Carlson seriously.

    Yeah, he’s calling you biased media out for being exactly what you are. And you hate him even more for it. I say good on him for being courageous and standing up for what he believes.

    Horrific thought: Is this another Trump's expression of Power Trip (much like how his son put all the evidence on Twitter but they still got away with it)? Could this be another Power Trip that blatantly says "It's the Electoral College votes that really count in the end. I don't need to care about what I say or don't say, what I do or don't do. I just need people to continue believing in no-government-corruption so we, the top 1%, can fatten up our morbidly obese wallets?" McConnell LAUGHED in mockery at the news anchorwoman as a response to her direct questions about Senate's inaction on Covid-19 relief bill. I'm not falling for any Trump or Republican scandal anymore. Just like the I-survived-Covid-now-I'm-Superman lie, Trump is pulling yet another reality-TV-episode smoke screen. Much like Louis DeJoy's publicity stunt/hoax to temporarily remove blue mailboxes, could this public "temper tantrum" be another Trump smoke-screen stunt to divert our national attention from the Republican party's stunt with Illegally Placed Misleading Ballot Boxes?

    Why are CNN not talking about Jeffrey Toobin one of their biggest pundits. I guess getting caught masterbating in a zoom call is not good for the network bwahahaha

    With the way MSM treats him and is against him – I think he is right to do what he is and it would be great to show the bias and how there are no real journalists anymore.

    To have a President whose son has an addiction to feed is very risky business. Hunter would sell his father, and Joe Biden would sell USA to help his son if need be. Huge liability.

    No one in right mind should vote for Joe. People are better off not to vote at all if they don’t like Trump than to vote for corrupt and demented racist Biden, which is insult to the intelligence. He couldn’t take care of his son, he for sure won’t take care of our kids.

    I agree if he wants a chance in this election he need to stop all the attacks. He is his own worst enemy! That being said I would say CNN needs to do the same. I used to come here for the news, but it’s devolved into trump v cnn and nothing but name calling on both sides. CNN your better then this and I hope after the election regardless of the winner you can clean yourself up.

    Is it really important for CNN to be running down the president?
    They should spend their time reporting the news. But maybe they’ve forgotten how to report the news. They have turned into a propaganda machine trying to stop President from being reelected and attacking every part of him! I’m sorry CNN but you’ve lost all credibility!

    I think its to late for Republicans to be disstanting them self from Trump. They never speak up or do whats best for the people. They only care about party.
