Trump Takes On '60 Minutes' Leslie Stahl For Defending Biden: "You're Like Big Tech, You're Protecting Him"


President Donald Trump and Leslie Stahl got into a heated argument after the "60 Minutes" correspondent implied he would not keep his word on replacing Obamacare with a program that will also cover patients with pre-existing patients.

"Are you going to say you didn't say this because I saw you say this?" Stahl asked.

Trump told Stahl she never would interview Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden in the fashion she interviews him. The president brought up the former VP's son Hunter Biden causing the CBS Newser to push back and say he is not involved in a "scandal."

"When I watch him walk out of a store, he's in the midst of a scandal," Trump said of Joe Biden. His family is corrupt, okay? He's a corrupt politician. And he's walking with ice cream. And the question the media asks him, 'what kind of ice cream, what flavor ice cream do you have?' And he's in the midst of a scandal."

"He is not," Stahl responded.

"Of course he is, Leslie," the president said.

"No, come on," Stahl continued.

"Of course he is," Trump said. "You're like Big Tech, you're protecting him."

Trump went on to say the Hunter Biden story is the "second biggest scandal" compared to surveillance of his presidential campaign.

Stahl pushed back on Trump's claims that the 2016 Trump campaign was spied on, telling him that "this is '60 Minutes'" and "we can't put on things we can't verify." Notably, in September 2004, disgraced 'CBS Evening News' anchor Dan Rather presented fake documents as evidence against George W. Bush in a '60 Minutes' report.

"They spied on my campaign," Trump said.

"There's no real evidence of that," Stahl pushed back.

"Of course there is," he said. "Leslie, they spied on my campaign and they got caught."

"Can I say something?" Stahl asked. "This is '60 Minutes' and we can't put things on we can't verify."

"You won't put it up because it's bad for Biden," Trump shot back.
