Trump Leaks Video of 60 Minutes Lesley Stahl After Cutting Interview Short

Leslie Stahl No Mask White House

President Donald Trump on Tuesday released a short video of CBS reporter Lesley Stahl not wearing a mask at the White House following an interview with him.

The interview ended after the president sat with the journalist for 45 minutes at the White House, according to reports.

“Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me. Much more to come,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president also threatened to air the interview with Stahl himself before the program aired on Sunday.

Assistant Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt also weighed in on Stahl’s behavior at the White House.

“This is moments after she criticized me for not wearing a mask while working at my desk,” she wrote. “Rules for thee but not for me, Lesley?”

White House CNN reporters cited sources that said that the president abruptly ended the interview and did not return for a scheduled “walk and talk” shot with Vice President Mike Pence.
