LESLEY STAHL: I didn’t want to have this kind of interview.

DONALD TRUMP: Of course you did.

LESLEY STAHL: No, I didn’t.

DONALD TRUMP: Of course, you did.

LESLEY STAHL: No, I didn’t.

DONALD TRUMP: Well, then you brought up a lot of subjects that–

LESLEY STAHL: Well, I said–

DONALD TRUMP: –were inappropriately–

LESLEY STAHL: –I was going to ask you tough questions.

DONALD TRUMP: –brought up. They were inappropriately brought up right from the beginning. Your first question was, this is going to be tough questions. Well–

LESLEY STAHL: It is.

DONALD TRUMP: When you set up the inter– your first statement was–

LESLEY STAHL: You’re president. Don’t you think you–

DONALD TRUMP: Excuse me. No, no, no.

LESLEY STAHL: –should be accountable to the American people?

DONALD TRUMP: Listen, your first statement to me– this is going to be tough questions. Well, I don’t mind that. But when you set up the interview, you didn’t say that. You said, oh, let’s have a lovely interview. And here’s what I do say–

LESLEY STAHL: So why–

DONALD TRUMP: –you don’t ask Joe Biden. I saw your interview with Joe– the interview, with Joe Biden.

LESLEY STAHL: I never did a Joe Biden interview.

DONALD TRUMP: It was a joke, the interview, “60 Minutes.” I see Joe Biden given softball after softball. I’ve seen all of his interviews. He’s never been asked a question that’s hard.

LESLEY STAHL: OK. But forget him for a minute.

DONALD TRUMP: No. But you start with me.

LESLEY STAHL: You’re president. You’re president. And–

DONALD TRUMP: Excuse me, Leslie, you started with me. Your first statement was, are you ready for tough questions?

LESLEY STAHL: Are you?

DONALD TRUMP: That’s no way to talk. That’s no way to talk.

Leslie, one second. We’re– this is the first warning. I we have five minutes until we have the vice president step in. Is that about right?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, I think we have enough. Really, we have enough of [INAUDIBLE].

So I think we’re ready for the vice president now.

DONALD TRUMP: I think we have enough of an interview here. OK? That’s enough. Let’s go. Let’s go. Let’s go meet for two seconds, OK?

OK.

DONALD TRUMP: Thanks. I’ll see you later. Thanks.
