President Donald Trump gave a Sixty Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl, after which Stahl gave a post-interview commentary about her interview with the president in the White House.
“He is so much more confident. He is truly president. He feels it. And I felt it in this interview,” said Lesley Stahl.
“I wouldn’t say he was restrained. He came at Fake News several times,” Stahl said.
“The more he’s out there, the more it helps the Republicans,” Stahl said.
Here are some of the best highlights of President Trump’s Sixty Minutes interview:
President Donald Trump said that “scientists also have a political agenda” when defending his retreat from the Paris climate accord.
“I don’t want to hurt jobs. There are other ways of punishing” Trump said of the Saudis.
“Maybe especially so because this man was a reporter. There’s something really terrible and disgusting about that, if that is the case,” Trump said, referring to the possible Saudi murder of a journalist. Marco Rubio has also strongly questioned Saudi Arabia and said the entire U.S.-Saudi relationship could be changed if it is true that Saudi Arabia killed the journalist.
“There has been no administration in the history of our country, in the first two years. It’s a fact. Tax cuts, regulation cuts, the biggest regulation cuts in history,” Trump said of his success.
On North Korea: ‘He Doesn’t Want To Go To War.’
“I thought it was going to end up in war…We were going to war with North Korea. Now, you don’t hear that. You don’t hear any talk of that. He doesn’t want to go to war. And we don’t want to go to war. And he’s talked about de-nuclearization.”
“We have a relationship now.”
“We haven’t done that. I’m not telling you. This isn’t the Obama administration. I haven’t used the sanctions.”
“I’m not a baby.”
“Look, look. I get along with him, okay.”
“Let it be an embrace.”
“Look, let it be whatever it is. I have a good energy with him, I have a good chemistry with him. Look at the horrible threats that were made. No more threats.”
On China: ‘You Call It A War. I Call It A Skirmish.”
“I have s great chemistry also with President Xi of China. I don’t know if that’s necessarily going to continue. I told President Xi, we can’t have China take $500 billion out of the United States.”
“So far, I put 25 percent tariffs on steel dumping, aluminum dumping, they don’t have enough ammunition to retailiate.”
“They are down 32 percent in four months, which is 1929. No, I don’t want that.”
“You call it a war, I don’t call it a war. I call it a skirmish. I consider it a skirmish. We are going to win.”
On Mattis: “I Think I Know More About It Than He Does.”
“I don’t want to be taken advantage of” with regard to NATO.
“Frankly, I like General Mattis. I think I know more about it than he does.”
“You don’t know what I talked about with Putin before the meeting.”
“I’m the one who gave Ukraine offensive weapons.”
“I think I’m very tough with him personally.”
“I think China meddled also.”
“I’m saying Russia, but I’m also saying: China.”
“Why should he have recused himself?”
“I don’t pledge anything….I think it is very unfair.”
“Do you really think I would call Russia to help me in an election? I wouldn’t call Russia at all. It’s ridiculous.”
“I regret that the press treats me so badly.”
“I could have been earlier with terminating the NAFTA deal. The problem is, I was getting to know the parties.”
On The Immigration Laws
“We want to change the immigration laws because they are a laughingstock all over the world.”
“No, I want all the laws changed.”
“This is the most deceptive, vicious world. It is vicious. It is full of deception and lies.”
“Nobody has been able to do what I’ve been able to do: nobody’s been able to do anything like this. Most
“It’s a very deceptive world. I never knew how dishonest the media was.”
“Leslie, it’s okay. In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.”
“I think the economy is bringing people together. It was very polarized under President Obama. We had Democrats who behaved horribly during the Brett Kavanaugh — you know what I’m saying. We had senators who behaved horribly.”
“I don’t think they want to be healed. I want to heal.”
On the Campaign Trail
Trump referred to “The famous Mississippi speech.”
“Had I not made that speech, we would not have won,” President Trump said.
“I’m not going to get into it, because we won. It doesn’t matter. We won.”
“It could have been The New York Times,” he said of the supposed anonymous op-ed writer.
“I’m changing things around, and I’m entitled to.”
“Other people will go. Sure.”
“I think I have a great Cabinet. There are some people I’m not happy with.”
On Mattis Leaving
“It could be that he is. I think he’s sort of a Democrat, to tell you the truth,” Trump said.
“At some point, everybody leaves. People leave. That’s Washington.”
“I don’t trust everybody in the White House, I’ll be honest with you.”
“I’m usually guarded, and I think I’m guarded anyway.”
“This is a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington, DC is a vicious vicious place. The attacks, the badmouthing, the speaking behind people’s backs. But in my own way, I think I’m very comfortable here.”
“I very much feel like POTUS. I very much feel like the President.”
Dana White Vows No Censorship in UFC After Media Campaign Against Pro-Trump Fighter Colby Covington
White is standing for free speech.
UFC promoter Dana White is standing strong for free speech, vowing never to “muzzle anybody” after pro-Trump fighter Colby Covington was targeted by a media campaign for making controversial statements following a huge victory last week.
“These guys all have their own causes, things, their own beliefs. We don’t muzzle anybody here,” White said. “We let everybody speak their mind.”
Covington made some candid comments following his defeat of Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN+ 36 in which he dominated the former champion who had professed his support for Black Lives Matter. He took the opportunity to gloat following his big victory.
“He’s standing up for lifelong criminals,” Covington said regarding his opponent Woodley. “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke. They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.”
“He’s a communist,” he added. “He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”
Covington also garnered controversy for making remarks about Nigerian-born UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Covington referenced his “little tribe” and “smoke signals” while calling Usman out. The fake news media brought up the issue to UFC fighters, who expressed their dismay, in order to push their latest phony race controversy.
“Let’s be real, first and foremost,” bantamweight Sijara Eubanks said. “It wasn’t ‘unfortunate.’ It was flat-out racist. It was racist. It was disgusting. It was quite frankly disappointing.”
“This guy has directly insulted my culture, my brother and many other cultures, and no one says anything,” Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said. “But it just shows you a mirror. Shows you a mirror to you guys.”
“Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington. We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change,” the corporation that sells shoes made by third-world workers wrote in an official statement.
Not only is White refusing to take disciplinary action against Covington, he is also claiming that Covington’s comments are not even racist and no big deal.
“I don’t know what he said that was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist that he said,” White added.
Big League Politics has reported on how White has stood up for pro-freedom causes in the past, such as when he fought tooth and nail against senseless COVID-19 lockdown restrictions preventing him from doing events:
UFC promoter Dana White has refused to succumb to coronavirus hysteria and remains steadfast in his resolve to hold fights even while panic grips the world.
White announced on Monday that his next pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, April 18 with a new main event in a currently undisclosed location.
White has even said that he intends to hold UFC fights on a weekly basis at a private island, refusing to slowdown even as the global economy shutters due to coronavirus mania. He opened up during an interview with TMZ Sports on Monday.
He told TMZ that the next UFC event will take place in the United States, and he intends to use that venue to host fights for two months. However, White claims he is only “a day or two away” from sealing a deal that would allow him to hold fights in a private island venue, and this would potentially give him a reprieve from all the coronavirus-related hassles that he has dealt with over the past month trying to book fights.
“I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too with international fighters,” White explained. “Because I won’t be able to get international fighters – all of them into the U.S. – so I have a private island. I am going to start flying them into the private island and doing international fights from there.”
“So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running,” White declared.
White has claimed that the fake news media is doing everything in their power to sabotage his efforts, as they want the public to suffer during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown as much as possible.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
White might be wise to consider a career in politics after he retires as UFC promoter.
