In a 60 Minutes interview Donald Trump had with Leslie Stahl, he went on his same rant about “fake news,” what he calls a “very unfair” investigation into the 2016 presidential election and his critiques on climate change.
Since Trump has been in office, he’s been acting out in several problematic and insensitive ways. Most recently, he mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at a rally. Ford testified against #BrettKavanaugh, claiming he sexually assaulted her in the 80s. The “60 Minutes” interview was released on Sunday, and in it, Trump denied said incident as well as others. Stahl asked Trump if he felt any remorse about anything he’s done during his time in office. He could think of nothing except for the way he’s been treated since getting the position as commander in chief. He also said he’s “not a baby” like people portrays him to be and that he “doesn’t trust everyone at the White House.”
Trump continued to deflect questions about bringing families back together who were subjected to mass separation at the U.S. and Mexico border, whether or not he would keep on attorney general #JeffSessions and said the majority of issues the country is currently enduring is because of Democrats. He claimed his political rivals may “not want to heal yet.” His denial continued with acts on climate change, saying that he won’t put money towards a budget because scientist can’t be trusted and have political agendas. When Stahl asked where he receives his information he responded with “people say.”
“They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael,” said Trump. Stahl responded, “Who says that? They say?” “People say that in the…,” Trump mumbled. Confused, Stahl asked, “Yeah, but what about the scientists who say it’s worse than ever?” Trump answered saying, “You’d have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda, Lesley.”
