DONALD Trump has DENIED he stormed out of Piers Morgan’s world exclusive interview after their blazing US presidential election row.
Trump has DENIED he stormed out of Piers Morgan’s world exclusive interview
The ex-President barked “turn the cameras off” before marching off the set
Piers blamed his refusal to admit defeat in the 2020 vote for last year’s deadly riots at the Capitol
After a preview of Piers’ interview was aired last night, the President released a statement claiming the clip was “deceptively edited”.
Trump accused the presenter of cutting out “very strong” discussion about his unproven voter fraud allegations in the 2020 election.
But Piers quickly hit back on Twitter, writing: “Morning, Mr President!
“It was a great interview, thanks for all your time.
“Sorry you got so annoyed that I don’t believe the 2020 election was rigged or stolen from you, but as I said, where’s your proof?
“If you have it, show us – or accept the result and move on.”
The 75-minute interview will be screened on the launch show of Piers Uncensored on TalkTV on Monday at 8pm.
In Trump’s statement, the President goes on to bizarrely suggest he didn’t storm off the set at all – and claimed he has an audio recording of the chat to prove it.
He wrote: “He wanted to make it look like I walked out on the interview when my time limit of 20 minutes went over by an hour.
“The good news is that the interview was taped over by us as a means of keeping him honest.
“The interview was actually very strong on the 2020 election fraud, with me calling him ‘a fool’ if he believed those results.”
He added: “For those who want to make Piers look bad, compare his video promo and how it was doctored to the real thing.
“Hopefully now they will be found some big changes to their final product.”
In last night’s promotional clip, Trump is seen screaming that his interviewer was “dishonest” and “a FOOL”.
He is heard barking at the shocked TV crew: “TURN THE CAMERAS OFF!”
Trump and Piers have been friends for 15 years – but he was enraged by a series of critical comments the TV star has made about his conduct in office.
They clashed before the interview began, and again on camera.
Writing in The Sun today, Piers tells how the President stared at him with ‘undisguised fury’ and was ‘almost foaming at the mouth’.
At one stage, the President snarled at him: ‘What the f**k IS this?’
Trump said to Piers: ‘You’re not real. You’re a fake.’ To which Piers replied: ‘No, I’m just brutally honest.’
