Trump Doubles Down on Climate Change Denial on "60 Minutes"

The other thing I've really learned is I never knew how dishonest the media was.

Asked during a "60 Minutes" interview airing Sunday whether Mattis will step down, Trump says Mattis hasn't told him that.

President Trump: - a very good relationship with him.

Asked last month about reports he may be leaving, Mattis said: "I wouldn't take it seriously at all". It could be that he is.

"Well, I don't want to give you an example - remember nobody's been able to do what I do", Trump said, factually inaccurate. We get along very well.

"I mean, at some point, everybody leaves", Trump said Sunday. "People leave. That's Washington".

Trump's speech was factually inaccurate, Dr. Ford did have a lot of information, described the house in such great detail that reporters were able to locate the house the assault likely occurred in and which friend of Kavanaugh's lived there at the time. When Trump moved to scrap the nuclear deal with Iran, Mattis, a hardliner on Iran's "malign influence" in the region, said that elements of the deal restricting Iran's nuclear and missile programs should be preserved.

Pentagon spokesman Colonel Rob Manning said in a brief statement: "Secretary Mattis is laser-focused on doing his job - ensuring the U.S. military remains the most lethal force on the planet".

The two countries have such an obligation under both criminal law and global human rights law, she said . Turkish officials have not stated how they determined that Khashoggi was killed at the consulate.

Mr Mattis will meet key leaders to reaffirm defence relationships and conduct bilateral and trilateral meetings with senior officials, said the press release issued on Oct 12. Watch Trump's reaction to Stahl as he shrugs off the criticism. I think it's a very unfair investigation because there was no collusion of any kind.

The wide-ranging discussion with the network's Lesley Stahl touched on Trump's opinion of politicians ("deceptive, vicious"), Chinese tariffs and Christine Blasey Ford, among other things.

Stahl pressed: but is there anything you regret?

TRUMP: I'm saying Russian Federation, but I'm also saying China.

In her post-interview reflections, Stahl said there was one question he "really didn't want to answer". But not only is Trump unwilling to say he'd do that, he stresses the complications of the relationship, both as it affects USA business interests and, implicitly, military alliances.

Trump responded, "No. The way you asked me a question, like about separation". I don't have to pledge to you.

The answer that Stahl wants-and, one presumes, that most Trump critics want-is an unequivocal statement that the president will pull out of virtually all contact with the Saudis.

"Trump is a refreshing reminder that the guy that's in the White House is another human being", says Louis Rossetto, the co-founder of Wired and author of the new book Change Is Good: A Story of the Heroic Era of the Internet. "And I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem", said the president.
