Trump ended the CBS interview after 45 minutes, telling the network he thought he had given them enough information , accusing them of being biased towards Democratic rival Joe Biden and criticizing Stahl for not wearing a mask.
Despite the interesting events, the president went on to tease the television special during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, urging his crowd of supporters to tune in and watch the awkward exchange unfold.
“You have to watch what we do for 60 Minutes, you'll get such a kick out of it,” president Trump said. “You're gonna get a kick out of it. Lesley Stahl's not gonna be happy.”
He also wrote on Twitter where he threatened to release the footage ahead of time for the sake of 'accuracy' , and to give the people a chance of seeing the full picture.
“I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME!' Trump wrote. This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about.”
He also tweeted a video of Stahl at the White House, pointing out that she was not wearing a mask.
CNN earlier reported that president Trump had walked out of the interview and did not return for a planned walk-and-talk with Vice President Mike Pence.
The president was furious that Biden's pool of reporters asked the Democratic nominee what kind of milkshake he bought during a recent campaign stop.
“He's committed crimes and they ask him about a milkshake,” the president said on his Tuesday morning 'Fox & Friends' call-in.
“Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me. Much more to come,” the president wrote.
President Trump and Pence were both interviewed by Stahl Tuesday at the White House.
Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, were also interviewed by the program, for an episode to be broadcast Sunday.
Trump's tweet was followed up by a tweet from press aide Karoline Leavitt.
“This is moments after she criticized me for not wearing a mask while working at my desk,Rules for thee but not for me, Lesley?”
The pile-on continued when White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany retweeted Leavitt's commentary.
McEnany later tweeted out an image of Stahl holding a large binder handed to her by the press secretary.
“Handing Lesley Stahl just a small part of what President Donald Trump has done for healthcare in the United States. She couldn’t believe how HUGE it was and said, ‘I can hardly lift this’ McEnany wrote.
