United States election: President Donald Trump reportedly walks out of television interview

Trump tweeted with the Facebook link: "Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS".

US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump will cast his own ballot for reelection early while in Florida on Saturday, the White House said.

President Trump is continuing his war on "60 Minutes" after he walked out of an interview with veteran broadcaster Lesley Stahl and threatened to publish footage of the sit-down before it airs on Sunday.

The clip showed Stahl and Trump sparring over the president's claim that he created "the greatest economy in the history of our country" and the longtime television host questioning Trump's claim that China is the biggest foreign adversary of the U.S.

Hours later, Trump said on Twitter that he was considering posting the interview with Stahl "PRIOR TO AIRTIME!"

Toward the end of the interview, Trump grew even more frustrated, complaining that he fields tougher questions than his Democratic challenger Joe Biden. In the early minutes of the interview, Trump relies on economic and employment statistics from before the nation began to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic to make the case that he should win a second term in office.

"You're gonna be fair", Trump says.

Trump faces Democrat Joe Biden in the debate on Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee.

Trump's decision to release the footage came after days of criticising Stahl, including tweeting a picture of the reporter not wearing a mask in the aftermath of the interview. "That's enough. Let's go, let's go".

Along with the remarks, he shared a picture of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany handing Stahl what appeared to be a book on the Trump administration's work on healthcare. He said he would answer the question of whether he planned to support it before the final presidential debate, scheduled for Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee. "I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.' He said that", Stahl said.

United States media reported that the president abruptly cut short his interview with CBS News 60 Minutes on Tuesday (local time). "I want you to be fair. He just made it transparently obvious to the American people that his only plan for health care is to take away yours", Wessel said.

"Because it can't be verified", Stahl said.

"Lesley, uh, President Trump is a man who speaks his mind", Mr Pence said. According to the outlet, the program "60 Minutes" said that the White House said it would record the interview only for its archives. "No drama, interview was not ended abruptly and we have the receipts from the interview - all of them!" So, as journalists are supposed to do, she repeatedly followed up on those questions in an attempt to get a straight answer.
