Leslie Stakl latest target of trump attack

Former Vice President Joe Biden may be President Donald Trump's ballot opponent, but in the days before the election, the president increasingly is ramping up his campaign against the news media.

"60 Minutes" and its correspondent, Lesley Stahl, are the latest targets of presidential ire, as Trump walked out early from a Tuesday interview and followed up with tweets trying to shame a maskless Stahl, and then threatened to post his video of the interview ahead of the CBS news magazine's broadcast Sunday (7:30 EDT/7 PDT).

Since taking office, Trump has continually run against the media, deriding it as a monolithic "enemy of the people" to the ecstatic cheers of his supporters. However, as the campaign hurtles toward the finish he has increasingly singled out individual reporters and debate moderators for attack.
