Trump Just Slapped Lesley Stahl WAY Down With One EPIC Line In 60 Minutes Interview

Published

on

Trump was interviewed by CBS’s Lesley Stahl in an interview for the 60 Minutes show on Sunday. He was firing all his guns as Stahl tried to take him out, and he got in one of his most epic one-liners ever.

Fox News reported the showdown:

“President Trump covered a lot of ground, but didn’t give any in a contentious “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night, railing against the “dishonest media,” defending his relationships with Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, expressing mistrust in unnamed aides and pointing out to Lesley Stahl that “I’m president and you’re not.”

News veteran Stahl tried to pin Trump down with a pledge not to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is in the second year of an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

“I don’t pledge anything,” Trump said. “But I will tell you, I have no intention of doing that. I think it’s a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.”

“I don’t want to pledge,” he added. “Why should I pledge to you? If I pledge, I’ll pledge. I don’t have to pledge to you. But I have … I have no intention of doing that.”

There were several similarly testy exchanges, including one about Trump’s relationship with Putin, his Russian counterpart with whom he was criticized for being friendly to during a meeting in Helsinki earlier this year. Stahl noted that Moscow is suspected in multiple assassinations of critics. Trump didn’t deny that Putin could be behind such things, but took a “mind our own business” approach.

“Of course they shouldn’t do it,” Trump said, “but it’s not our country.”

Trump acknowledged that Russia likely meddled in the election, but dismissed Moscow’s actual influence in his presidential race against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

“They meddled,” he said. “But I think China meddled, too. And I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem.”

Stahl also pressed Trump about his overtures to Kim, the third-generation dictator of North Korea. When she asked him how he could “embrace” the brutal dictator, Trump asserted that his brand of diplomacy had helped defang a threat to the U.S. Trump met with Kim in Singapore in June and the leaders have tentative plans for another session, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“I get along with him really well,” Trump said of Kim. “I have a good energy with him. I have a good chemistry with him. Look at the horrible threats that were made. No more threats. No more threats.”

The interview followed an ABC News exclusive with First Lady Melania Trump, in which she said she has warned her husband that he cannot trust some of the key people around him. Asked about it, Trump agreed with his wife.

Asked what he has learned and what he was most surprised by since becoming president, Trump, who never held political office before entering the White House, bemoaned the political atmosphere in Washington.

“So I always used to say the toughest people are Manhattan real estate guys and blah, blah. Now I say they’re babies,” Trump said.

Although he didn’t specify who he didn’t trust, the president had surprising words for Defense Secretary James Mattis, who he said was “sort of a Democrat,” and hinted may not be on the job much longer.

“He may leave,” Trump said of Mattis. “I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That’s Washington.”

When pressed about Mattis, Trump denied that the legendary general had needed to educate the president about NATO’s role when Trump was seeking greater contributions from member nations.

“No, it’s not true,” Trump said. “Frankly, I like Gen. Mattis [but] I think I know more about it than he does.”

Trump lamented what he considers his unfair treatment by the media, touching off a sharp exchange.

“I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it,” Trump said. “I’m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonest.”

Stahl sought to stop the attack, saying, “I’m going to change the subject again.” But Trump charged on, and directed his criticism at his interviewer.

“Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like, about [family] separation [of illegal immigrants at the border]. When I say, ‘Obama did it,’ you don’t want to talk about it.”

“I disagree, but I don’t want to have that fight with you,” Stahl said.

“Lesley, it’s okay,” Trump replied. “In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.””

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers Will Testify This Coming Week, “Explosive” Allegations to Come…

Published

“With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties. What’s next on this investigation?” the Fox News host questioned Congressman Meadows.

“Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this,” Meadows answered.

The Gateway Pundit reports:

Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha and as we just look at the contributions — now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year, but if you look at it, you know, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as Secretary of State — then it dipped down when she was no longer there and then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of you know, pay-to-play and that kind of thing, “Meadows said.

Take a look:

In the three years following Hillary Clinton’s departure from her position in the State Department, the Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 90%.

The Gateway Pundit writes, “Hillary Clinton left the State Department in 2013 and it looks like nobody wants to pay since she can no longer play.”

Currently, the Clinton Foundation is being put under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI for a whole plethora of reasons.

The Hill reports that the Clinton Foundation is also being investigated by the IRS in order to find out whether or not any “tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use.”

Numerous Clinton emails backing up the idea that the Clinton Foundation was involved in “pay-to-play” schemes during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the Department of State have been found by Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
