White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows supported the president’s objection to the line of questioning in an interview Wednesday with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo, and called Stahl an “opinion journalist.”

In a move to fight Fake News, President Donald Trump released a number of pictures Wednesday from his interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” with Lesley Stahl at the White House Tuesday night, which ended abruptly when Mr. Trump walked out of the program in anger.

President Trump described the interview as “fake and biased” in a tweet he released on  Tuesday night and said he was going to release the interview early, in a move to discredit the interview which was said to be more like “Opinion” rather than “reporting”.

A number of photos with the White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany handing Stahl a large book, that contained the number of jobs the Trump administration has completed on health care, were also posted Wednesday.

“Kayleigh McEnany presenting Lesley Stahl [60 Minutes] with some of the many things we’ve done for Healthcare,” Trump tweeted. “Lesley had no idea!”

President Trump had previously tweeted a video of Stahl in the White House following the interview and signaled that she was not wearing a face mask as a measure of containing the coronavirus.

Trump tweeted, “Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes not wearing a mask in the White House after her interview with me. Much more to come.”

President Trump was originally scheduled to do a “walk and talk” with Stahl and Vice President Mike Pence, although that didn’t happen due to the abrupt ending of the program.

White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows supported the president’s objection to the line of questioning in an interview Wednesday with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo, and called Stahl an “opinion journalist.”

“Listen, when you have a ’60 Minutes’ reporter, they should be reporter, not an opinion journalist. She came across more like an opinion journalist than a real reporter,” Meadows said. Journalism should have standards, and we need to get to the bottom of it, so I think the American people will be able to see it,” he said.

President Trump also touted the show to a crowd of his supporters in Erie, Pa., during a rally Tuesday night.

Trump said, “You have to watch what we do to ‘60 Minutes,’ you’ll get such a kick out of it. Lesley Stahl is not going to be happy.”
