Lesley Stahl: Trump Told Me Privately He Attacks The Media So People Won’t Believe Negative Stories (Mediaite)
President Trump has had an antagonistic relationship with the press for years, but 60 Minutes‘ Lesley Stahl revealed last night that Trump once explained why he continues his barrage of attacks so much.
Stahl spoke with PBS NewsHour‘s Judy Woodruff last night at the Deadline Club Awards Dinner to talk about journalism and the President’s relationship with the press.
At one point, Stahl reflected on her post-election interview with the President-elect and how prior to it she met with him in Trump Tower, calling Trump “exactly the same” off-camera as he is on-camera.
