The President of the United States, Donald Trump, broke an agreement with the broadcaster “CBS” on Thursday, in advance disclosing an interview that he himself abruptly interrupted because he considered the questions being asked “inappropriate”.

The recorded interview of Trump it was on the program “60 Minutes”, which is shown on Sunday nights and is one of the most influential spaces on American television.

“Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness of ’60 Minutes’ and ‘CBS’,” the president said on Twitter on Thursday, posting a link to his page on Facebook, where he published the unedited interview, which lasts almost 38 minutes.

On video, Trump gradually challenges more challenging questions from journalist Lesley Stahl about the new coronavirus, access to health and its behavior on social networks.

Near the end of the video, Stahl told Trump: “I didn’t want to have this type of interview”, and the president complained that his electoral rival, the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, does not receive such “tough” questions, while accusing the journalist of asking “inappropriate” questions from the beginning.

“No, I told you I would ask tough questions,” replied Stahl, remembering the Trump that he is the President of the United States and therefore must be able to answer such questions.

After this discussion, the interview ended and the president refused to participate in a previously arranged walk and conversation that would have the participation of the American vice president, Mike Pence.

In a statement, “CBS” criticized Trump for the “unprecedented decision” to ignore the deal that had been made with the broadcaster and reiterated that it still plans to show the full interview on Sunday to provide context. “CBS” will also broadcast an interview with Biden on Sunday.

The president’s decision to publish the interview in advance comes on the same day as the last debate between the two candidates before the November 3 elections.

The last face-to-face debate will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, and will be moderated by “NBC News” reporter Kristen Welker, who Trump he said he considered it “much worse” than Stahl, from “CBS”. EFE
