Where: 60 Minutes on CBS.
What: It's unknown which topics Trump and Stahl will broach throughout the conversation, but in a much-buzzed preview snippet of the episode, the POTUS addresses reports that he is the chaos President and sticks to his long-held assertion that his administration is a "well-oiled machine."
In the clip, a charged Trump responds to the suggestion that the West Wing is a mess right now thanks to so many staff and cabinet departures (most recently, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced her resignation) by saying, "It's wrong, it's so false. It's fake news. Now, did out of hundreds and hundreds of people, some I did not pick — I'm changing things around. I'm entitled to. I have people now on stand by that'll be phenomenal coming into the administration. They'll be phenomenal."
As Stahl presses whether that means certain officials might soon be on the way out, Trump admits, "Sure, other people will go." However, when the subject of massive turnover rate is raised, he interrupts to say, "Look, look, I told you the story, I told you the story. I think I have a great cabinet. There are some people that I'm not happy with. I have some people that I'm not thrilled with, and I have people that I'm beyond thrilled with."
Stahl goes on to press him about the specific future of General James Mattis, whose time in the administration has been called into question in recent weeks as a result of his reportedly strained relationship with POTUS, and his non-committal answer has already drummed up even more interest in the subject.
"I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago. I have a very good relationship with him. It could be that is [leaving]. I think he's sort of a Democrat if you want to know the truth. But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That's Washington."
