Donald says: “You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

According to Lesley Stahl, Donald J. Trump told her (and her boss) in an unrecorded discussion before a recorded interview for “60 Minutes” that he attacks and demeans the press in order to plant disbelief in the minds of the public when the press writes “negative” (truthful) stories about him:

Stahl said she and her boss met with Trump in his office in Trump Tower in Manhattan after the 2016 election in advance of a recorded sit-down interview for “60 Minutes.
“At one point, he started to attack the press,” Stahl said. “There were no cameras in there.”
“I said, ‘You know, this is getting tired. Why are you doing it over and over? It’s boring and it’s time to end that. You know, you’ve won … why do you keep hammering at this?’ ” Stahl recalled.
“And he said: ‘You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.’ ”
