As we previously reported, President Donald Trump was interviewed by CBS’s Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” this week.
The interview took a turn the liberal host wasn’t expecting when President Trump proved to be too smart for her tactics and didn’t take the bait with ridiculous questions which were clearly meant to trap him.
Things turned South when Stahl decided to bring up North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
The President stated, “I do trust him, yeah, I trust him. That doesn’t mean I can’t be proven wrong.”
Stahl questioned, “Why would you trust him?”
Then, Trump stated that if he did not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin, he would not say so on television. Then he reminded Stahl that Kim Jong Un has not tested any missiles or rockets recently.
He stated, “They definitely haven’t done a nuclear test because you know about them real fast. It sort of moves the earth. And we have a relationship now.”
She wouldn’t drop it, however. She pressed Trump, “He presides over a cruel kingdom of repression, gulags, starvation. Reports that he had his half-brother assassinated. Slave labor. Public executions. This is a guy you love?”
This is when things got really tense.
“I know all these things,” Trump shot back, “I mean. I’m not a baby. I know these things. I get along with him really well. I have a good energy with him. I have a good chemistry with him. Look at the horrible threats that were made. No more threats. No more threats.”
At one point in the interview, President Trump explained that he felt the mainstream media had not treated him fairly since the start saying, “I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a sound bite. I never knew how dishonest.”
Then, Stahl tried to change the direction of the conversation saying, “Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like, about (family) separation (of illegal immigrants at the border). When I say, ‘Obama did it,’ you don’t want to talk about it.”
She told Trump that she wasn’t looking to start a fight with him, to which President Trump simply stated, “Lesley, it’s okay. In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.”
BOOM! Leave it to President Trump to shut down an arrogant liberal simply by using the solid truth.
