Trump appeared unable to handle the truth about the election he claims was rigged against him in November 2020 as he was shown getting testy in an interview with ex-Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan.
Morgan, who has joined the Rupert Murdoch-owned TalkTV to host his own Piers Morgan Uncensored programme, shared a heavily-edited small clip of his new interview with Trump on his Twitter page. This was in promotion of his new show, which launches on 25 April.
In a series of clips, Trump is shown rather irate as Morgan tells him the 2020 election was “free and fair” and says the ex-president “never produced the hard evidence." Trump can be seen trying to interject by shouting “excuse me” over and over again.
“You think I’m a fool?’ asks Morgan. “I do now,” Trump replies.
In following clips, Trump tells Morgan, "I don’t think you’re real”, and “Let’s finish up the interview”. A final clip shows Trump standing up and demanding cameras be shut off before he walks away and says: “Very dishonest”.
In a column on the New York Post's website, Morgan said: "Apparently, he was later heard denouncing me as a 'scumbag' and saying he wished he’d never done the interview.
"The next day, I sent Trump an email thanking him for his time and included these words: 'You had every right to get annoyed and call me a fool for not believing the election was stolen from you, but I also have every right to my opinion, and I wasn’t going to lie to your face just to avoid annoying you. The best friends are the most honest/critical ones, not the sycophants.'
"As I write this, 10 days later, I haven’t had any reply. Perhaps we’ll never speak again, and our friendship is over?"
