Trump ridiculed after video shows him leaving car-crash interview 'pouting' and 'sulking'

Donald Trump has been accused of 'sulking' after leaving the White House following an interview with 60 Minutes earlier this week, which he reportedly stormed out of.

The interview which is set to air on Sunday on CBS but Trump has already threatened to release portions of it before then, calling reporter Lesley Stahl 'biased' and also criticised her for not wearing a mask in the White House.

However, Trump instead tweeted images from the interview which didn't tell much of a story at all.

Trump reportedly walked out of the interview after just 45 minutes but his chief of staff Mark Meadows has since denied that the president walked out, telling Fox Business:

He didn't walk out. I mean, the characterization of that, he spent over 45 minutes with Leslie Stahl, I've looked at every single minute of the interview and then some. We have tape of every single minute.

Listen, when you have a '60 Minutes' reporter, they should be a reporter, not an opinion journalist. And she came across more like an opinion journalist than a real reporter.

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.

Regardless of if Trump did walk out of the interview or no, footage shared by The Recount showed that Trump was not in a good mood afterward with many describing his demeanour as 'sulking,' 'pouting' and 'grumpy.'

There are now less than two weeks to go until the US election and polls in key swing states still putting Joe Biden ahead and in some points by double figures.
