‘I’m a more honest man than you’: Trump concludes Piers Morgan interview
Piers Morgan aired the second part of his very drawn-out interview with Donald Trump, a meeting which he said found the ex-president in a bad mood – although Mr Trump insisted the conversation ended perfectly amicably.
In the first segment of the interview, which was shown last night, the ex-president insisted that he had deterred an invasion of Ukraine during his administration by threatening Vladimir Putin “as he has never been threatened before”.
Prior to the screening of their conversation, Mr Morgan described Trump as “pathological” in his fixation on the alleged theft of the 2020 election, a conspiracy theory that the journalist insisted there is no evidence for.
Meanwhile, the president’s supporters are hoping he will return to his own words and seek to return to Twitter after self-proclaimed “freedom of speech” Elon Musk reached an agreement to buy the platform.
And on another front, Mr. Trump has been found in contempt of lawsuits filed against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is investigating allegations of fraud in the Trump organization’s real estate business. The ex-president and his staff have now been ordered to pay a $ 10,000 daily fine until the records are handed over.

“One last question,” said Trump’s communications director outside. That was not the last question. See the full exchange below.

‘The whole hell breaks loose’: Morgan plays full Trump walk out
“He was already smoldering with anger over the confrontation over the alleged stolen election,” Morgan said before broadcasting the entire Trump walkout from the interview.
The host accused the former president’s “incredibly incompetent” communications director Taylor Budowich of failing to pass the interview before “hell breaks loose”.
“Listen, this was a 20-minute interview,” Trump said, before Morgan distracted him with a question about a hole-in-one.
His seventh. Which is not so loud, believe it or not.
“It was a good interview,” Morgan says.
“Yeah, that’s fine. Turn off the camera,” Trump replies before, yes, goes without saying goodbye and walks out.
But did it storm out?

Deborah Birx says she was ‘paralyzed’ during Trump’s disinfectant quarrel
Dr. Deborah Birx, Covid White House Covid Response Coordinator for Donald Trump, says in a new interview that she felt “paralyzed” in front of the cameras after her ex-boss suggested injecting disinfectants as a bleach to kill the Covid-19 virus .
She talked to Good morning America in a comprehensive interview published on Monday as part of her media tour to promote her new book describing her time in the Trump administration. Her book publishing follows a large number of similar publications from former Trump administration officials, mostly politically appointed as opposed to Dr. Birx, who has tried to exploit the lure of an “inside look” into the chaotic inner workings of the government under Mr Trump’s leadership. .
