Trump Stops Interview After One Very Valid Question

The interview was congenial up until this comment

In an interview with Face the Nation host John Dickerson broadcast Monday, Trump made a woefully unprofessional move—even for Trump. While chatting at the Oval Office, Dickerson asked the president about a number of relatively neutral topics from infrastructure to White House décor. But a question about one of his tweets ultimately pushed Trump to the edge. On March 4, Trump tweeted, “How low has President Obama gone to tapp (sic) my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”


When Dickerson asked for clarification regarding this particular tweet, Trump interrupted the CBS host, saying, “You don’t have to ask me,” CBS News reports. After Dickerson pushed back, asking why he wouldn’t question Trump about his inflammatory tweet, Trump replied, “Because I have my own opinions. You can have your own opinions.” “But I want to know your opinions,” Dickerson said. “You're the president of the United States.” The CBS host barely had a chance to regroup before Trump abruptly shut down the interview, saying, “Ok, it’s enough.”

The interview was made more awkward by the way he and Dickerson stood in front of the Oval Office desk, with Trump seemingly poised to wave Dickerson away the moment the discussion became uncomfortable. Since Trump tweeted that claim in early March, Obama’s camp thoroughly disputed the accusation. As further proven by this recent interview, Trump has no evidence to back it up.

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
