After the “60 Minutes” interview with Donald Trump made headlines last week, American TV network CBS aired the entire segment on Sunday, but a short clip that shows the US President abruptly ending the recording and walking away has been viewed over 4 million times.

In the clip, Trump was visibly irritated with journalist Lesley Stahl’s line of questioning and the testy exchange ended with the president cutting short the interview.

Lesley asked the president, “Do you think that your tweets and name calling are turning people off?

To which Trump responded saying, “No, I think I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have social media. The media is fake. Frankly, if I didn’t have social media, I would have no way of getting out my voice.”

Trump alleged that Joe Biden has never been asked hard questions and said the way Lesley asked him if he was ready for tough questions at the beginning of the interview was “no way to talk”. When Lesly reminded Biden was not the president and he is, Trump walked away from the set.

Last week, Trump taunted Lesley on Twitter, posting a short behind-the-scenes video of her at the taping and noting that she had not been wearing a mask in the clip. He also threatened to post his interview with Stahl ahead of its intended broadcast time Sunday evening, calling it “FAKE and BIASED.”
