President Trump threatened to release an interview he granted “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl ahead of Sunday’s airing, suggesting he would expose how “fake and biased” the sitdown was.

Trump sat down with the veteran journalist at the White House on Tuesday, which is set to air Sunday, Oct. 25, along with interviews with Vice President Mike Pence, Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, and Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris.

The president wants to scoop CBS by sharing his interview before the network does.

“I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME!” Trump posted on Twitter. “This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about.”

The president encouraged his Twitter followers to compare interviews with him to interviews with Biden.

“Everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!” Trump tweeted.

Sources tell Fox News that Stahl was “extremely hostile” and that she began the interview along the lines of “get ready for some tough questions.” Sources say she then “unleashed in a way she would never do to Joe Biden.”

Trump cut the interview short, a CBS News spokesperson told Fox News, and a scheduled joint “walk and talk” with him and Pence was reportedly scrapped.

The CBS News spokesperson said the White House had agreed to tape the interview for archival purposes only.

Earlier, Trump called out the “60 Minutes” correspondent for not wearing a mask at the White House, sharing a video of a maskless Stahl speaking with two staffers, both of whom were wearing masks.

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

The CBS News spokesperson said the photo of Stahl without a mask was taken immediately after the interview, and that she had been wearing a mask in the time before the interview.

The tweet is likely in reference to the ongoing criticism the Trump administration receives from members of the media for not strictly following CDC guidelines that urge mask-wearing and social-distancing.

White House Assistant Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt also called out the veteran journalist, accusing her of hypocrisy.

“This is moments after she criticized me for not wearing a mask while working at my desk,” Leavitt tweeted. “Rules for thee but not for me, Lesley?”

President Trump has ratcheted up his attacks against the media in recent weeks between the lack of coverage the reports regarding Hunter Biden’s emails with Ukrainian business contacts, the controversy surrounding suspended C-SPAN host Steve Scully, who was supposed to moderate the canceled second presidential debate because he admitted to lying about his Twitter account being hacked, and has repeatedly slammed NBC News correspondent and third debate moderator Kristen Welker ahead of Thursday’s political showdown.

Hillary Clinton‘s days as a public servant may not be behind her.

Speaking at The 19th Represents Summit on Thursday, Clinton was asked if she would accept a job in the Biden administration.

“I’m ready to help in any way I can,” Clinton responded, “because I think this will be a moment where every American — I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care — every American should want to fix our country… So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that.”

Clinton previously served alongside Joe Biden in the Obama administration as Secretary of State. Republicans were critical about her tenure at the State Department between her handling of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and the controversy over her private email server, which plagued her 2016 presidential campaign.

Earlier this year, Clinton offered her endorsement of the former VP.

“I want to add my voice to the many who have endorsed you to be our president,” Clinton said.

“Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science, put fact over fiction, but brought us together, showed the kind of compassion and caring that we need from our president and which Joe Biden has been exemplifying throughout his entire life,” Clinton emphasized.

She also expressed her overwhelming approval of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as Biden’s running mate.

“I’m thrilled to welcome @KamalaHarris to a historic Democratic ticket,” Clinton tweeted Tuesday. “She’s already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader. And I know she’ll be a strong partner to @JoeBiden. Please join me in having her back and getting her elected.”

Clinton is set to speak at next week’s DNC convention along with her husband former President Bill Clinton.

What is the true cost of Medicare for all?

Juniper Research Group founder and CEO Chris Jacobs breaks down the cost.

The Trump campaign slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, on Friday for his intention to extend Medicare-for-all for all illegal immigrants currently living in the U.S.

Speaking at a presidential candidate forum in Miami earlier on Friday, Sanders vowed to “organize the American people” to get onboard with government-funded health care for everyone, reiterating that it should be a “human right.” When asked by the moderator if the approximate 11 million illegal immigrants would be included, Sanders quickly responded, “absolutely.”

“When I talk about healthcare being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings as well,” Sanders added.

President Trump’s “War Room” blasted the 2020 candidate on Twitter.

“This is unfair to America’s seniors who have worked hard and paid into Medicare their whole life,” the campaign exclaimed.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also swiped Sanders. saying the Democrats’ “radical agenda” was on “full display.”

Fellow Democratic candidate, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, was also asked if all 11 million illegal immigrants would be eligible for his healthcare plan but expressed that the country “wasn’t ready” to guarantee such benefits for all of them, but did leave the door open once when immigration reform takes place.

2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden says the Trump presidency is a threat to democracy

Former Vice President Biden references Charlottesville and morality in speech to supporters in Iowa; reaction and analysis from ‘Special Report’ anchor Bret Baier.

Former Vice President Joe Biden made a bold promise on Tuesday to “cure cancer” if he is elected president in 2020.

At a campaign event in Ottumwa, Iowa, Biden expressed the difficulty one faces with a “loss” of a family member and others attempt to comfort them saying, “‘I know how you feel'” when in reality they have “no idea how I feel,” which is likely in reference to the loss of his son Beau Biden, who died in 2015 from brain cancer.

“That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that… I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden declared.

His remarks were welcomed with applause.

In 2016, Biden headed the “Cancer Moonshot” program during the Obama administration in a renewed effort to find a cure for cancer. He also launched the Biden Cancer Initiative after leaving office.

The Democratic frontrunner took some shots at President Trump while campaigning in Iowa, calling him an “existential threat” to the country.

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night and offered some rare praise for President Trump for being the first president to “actually deliver” on his campaign promises.

Noah, 35, began by knocking critics who claimed he wasn’t “angry enough” when he first took over “The Daily Show” in 2015 from Jon Stewart.

“When I took over ‘The Daily Show,’ everyone was like, ‘What are you going to make jokes about?’ And then one of the main things people have said to me was — they said, ‘You’re just not angry enough, Trevor. Where’s your indignation?’ And I was like, ‘What do you have to be angry about? Things are going great right now; your economy is growing, your president is loved, your footprint around the world is one that’s being cemented as the super power. What are you angry about?'” Noah recounted to Jimmy Kimmel.

“And then people had all of this faux anger and they were like, ‘You’ve got to be angry’ and I was like ‘There’s nothing to be angry about. There’s nothing to be stressed about right now. And I was worried about that for the show.”

“We’re always angry about something. If there’s nothing important to be angry about, we’ll find something dumb to be angry about,” Kimmel said in agreement. “Somebody will put pineapple on a pizza and we’ll lose our minds.”

The Comedy Central star then pivoted to the Trump presidency and acknowledged a trait rarely seen in politics.

“Then when Donald Trump was elected and then proceeded to do what he had promised, ironically, right?” Noah continued. “Because it’s funny that Donald Trump would be the first presidential candidate to actually deliver. Hate him or love him, hate him or love him, he’s doing the things he said he was going to do.”

The South African comic routinely comments on Trump and American politics on his Comedy Central show and is ramping up the show’s political coverage ahead of the 2020 races.

“What’s going to be interesting for me in 2020 is this new narrative and this new discussion around the Democratic Party — because for a long time it’s just been one storyline: Donald Trump,” Noah said at a SXSW panel in March. “But now it’s going to be: Who are the Democrats? What do they stand for? What are their plans?”

“We’re going to be at the conventions, we’re going to be tracking the primaries,” Noah said. “We’re going to go where ever there’s access.”
