President of the United States, Donald Trump, touched down on numerous headlines and important people during his interview with 60 Minutes over the weekend.
The interview, which is the third one host Lesley Stahl has had with Trump, pressed on important issues and previous remarks that Trump had made.
The discussion began with a discussion on the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is believed to have gone missing when he visited the Saudi consulate in Turkey for some personal chores.
Trump mentioned that the case was being looked at very strongly by not only the USA but also by other countries. And, if they find Saudi Arabia at the bottom of it, they would impose strict sanctions on the Middle Eastern country.
Talking about Kim Jong Un and North Korea, Trump said that he has good chemistry with the North Korean premier. He mentioned, “Look, let it be whatever it is. I get along with him really well. I have good energy with him. I have a good chemistry with him. Look at the horrible threats that were made. No more threats. No more threats.”
Stahl then came to the topic of Christine Blasey Ford and tried to probe Trump, but the president displayed exemplary composure.
When asked about the remarks Trump had made on Dr. Ford during a rally, where he had questioned her memory, Trump said that he had treated Dr. Ford with great respect.
“Had I not made that speech, we would not have won,” Trump said. When the host tried to press Trump further, he replied, “I’m not going to get into it, because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.”
Trump closed the interview by mentioning how he feels very comfortable being the President of the United States now and how he is above the early pressure that came with the job.
