WASHINGTON – The Latest on the presidential campaign (all times local):
President Donald Trump is keeping up a public feud with “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl, who he says took him too seriously after he pleaded for suburban women to love him.
Stahl interviewed Trump at the White House on Tuesday for Sunday’s edition of the news magazine. Trump abruptly ended the interview.
Addressing a campaign rally Wednesday in Gastonia, North Carolina, Trump says Stahl pressed him on his plea for love from suburban women, many of whom have turned away from the president.
Trump says although he was kidding, “I mean it.”
He says Stahl told him: “You are begging for women to love you.”
The president also alluded to a threat he first issued on Twitter to release a White House video of the interview before it airs on Sunday.
