After President Trump was apparently unhappy about an interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes this week, on Thursday, he released his own footage of the conversation before CBS could air it. The 37-minute video shows Stahl asking Trump, "You're okay with some tough questions?" Trump responds, "No, I'm not." Stahl also repeatedly pressed Trump to explain how he'll protect pre-existing conditions if the Supreme Court ends ObamaCare, as Trump says he's hoping for, but he provided no details on the "fully developed" health-care plan he claimed will be "announced very soon." Trump abruptly ended the interview, declaring "I think we have enough," before walking out. Trump's early release violated an agreement the White House made with CBS to film the conversation for archival purposes. The move "will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair, and contextual reporting," CBS News said.
