Lesley Stahl of CBS’ 60 Minutes arranged the first interview with Donald Trump after his 2016 election. Here is what she reports about that meeting:
“At one point, he started to attack the press,” Stahl said. “There were no cameras in there.”
“I said, ‘You know, this is getting tired. Why are you doing it over and over?'”…. Stahl recalled.
“And he said: ‘You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.’”
