Donald Trump has leaked an audio recording in which his team repeatedly asks Piers Morgan to wrap up their interview.
The first episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored is due to hit our screens later this month on 25 April and after revealing Trump as his first guest, the presenter also shared a short teaser which seemingly shows the former US president storming out of the interview.
Trump has since issued a statement comparing Morgan to the 'rest of the fake news media', and accused him of 'unlawfully and deceptively' editing the 'long and tedious' interview to make it look like he walked out.
The statement claimed: "He wanted to make it look like I walked out on the interview when my time limit of 20 minutes went over by an hour."
And now, in audio released by Trump via his newsletter, he can be heard saying the 'world is gonna be blown to pieces' with the people currently running the US.
Have a listen here:
Trump's communications director Taylor Budowich is then heard asking Morgan if he's actually asked his last question, or if he's just parroting the 'last question' like he allegedly did four times prior. The host then asks about Trump's hole-in-one, at which point the interview continues.
Hi Taylor, the fact you weren’t able to stop the interview, & the fact President Trump had to be told about my previous public criticisms of him by some dodgy bloke in London rather than by you suggests he urgently needs a new Director of Communications! I’d pack your bags, mate. https://t.co/826vJOaEzp— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 21, 2022
Towards the end of the clip, the pair can even be heard laughing about Trump buying a round for the whole golf club and Morgan telling him: "That was a great interview."
Trump's statement adds: "The interview was actually very strong on the 2020 Election Fraud, with me calling him a 'fool' if he truly believed those results.
"He went out of his way to deceptively edit an interview and got caught. That's a big story, isn't it?"
Check out the teaser trailer for Morgan's interview with Trump below:
Donald Trump Jr. also called out the way the teaser for the episode was put together, tweeting: "It’s totally brutal how misleading and deceptive the Morgan promo edit is."
Morgan replied: "I learned all my promo skills from you guys on Celebrity Apprentice!
"Nothing misleading or deceptive about it, Don - your dad just got very annoyed when I told him I don’t believe the 2020 election was rigged or stolen. Aside from that, it was a terrific interview."
In response to claims and reports suggesting Morgan deceived Trump, he also tweeted: "My statement to all news organisations wanting my response to President Trump claiming ‘RIGGED PROMO!!’: it was as rigged as the 2020 Election."
