Trump says Piers Morgan’s promo was ‘tampered with’ as ​​video shows him exiting interview

Former President Donald Trump has denounced presenter Piers Morgan and accused him of tampering with the promo for his interview to suggest the Republican leader stormed out of the room.

In a series of snaps, a furious Mr Trump is shown grimacing as Mr Morgan calls the 2020 election ‘free and fair’ and claims the ex-president ‘never produced the hard evidence to prove otherwise. The former president was seen trying to intervene, shouting “excuse me” over and over again.

In a statement on Thursday, Mr Trump said: “Piers Morgan, like the rest of the fake media, attempted to unlawfully and deceptively edit his long and tedious interview.”

“He wanted to make it look like I left the interview when my 20 minute time limit went over an hour. The interview was very strong on 2020 voter fraud, I called him ‘crazy “if he really believed in these results,” the statement said.

Mr Morgan, who joined Rupert Murdoch-owned TalkTV to host his own show Piers Morgan uncensoredtook to Twitter on Wednesday to post a jump-filled clip of the interview to promote his new show.

“For those who want to make Piers look bad, compare his promotional video and the way it was doctored to the real thing. Hopefully they will now make some big changes to their final product,” Mr. Trump added.

In the chaotic 30-second clip shared by Mr Morgan, the president says: ‘I think I’m a very honest man, much more so than you actually.’

After Mr Morgan says ‘it was a free and fair election – you lost’, the Republican leader replies: ‘Only a fool would think that.’

“You think I’m a fool?” asks Mr. Morgan.

“I do now,” replies the former president.

The 45th president also called his Vice President Mike Pence “dumb and weak”, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell “dumb”, according to Mr Morgan.

The last second of the advert shows Mr Trump standing up and ordering the cameras to turn off as he walked away saying: ‘Very dishonest’.

The presenter added that he had been called a fool six times by the ‘annoyed’ president, according to The sun.

“The next day I sent Trump an email thanking him for his time and including these words: ‘You had every right to get upset and call me a fool for not believing that the election you had been robbed, but I have every right to my opinion too, and I wasn’t going to lie to your face just to avoid annoying you,” Mr Morgan wrote.

“Best friends are the most honest/critical, not the sycophants.”
