CBS' Lesley Stahl Reveals What Was in the Massive Book the WH Gave Her After Trump Interview


CBS’ Lesley Stahl is sharing what was in the massive book the White House handed to her following her “60 Minutes” interview with the president. The book initially appeared to be blank, as some noted, from photos.

Prior to the interview airing, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany — who gave Stahl the massive book — wrote on Twitter, “Handing Lesley Stahl just a small part of what President [Donald Trump] has done for healthcare in the United States.”

President Donald Trump ended the “60 Minutes” interview early, and while waiting to see if he would return, as Stahl noted, McEnany handed her the book.

Stahl said on “60 Minutes” of the book, “It was heavy, filled with executive orders, congressional initiatives but no comprehensive health plan.”

Stahl’s remarks follow after McEnany declared on Twitter last week, “NO, the White House did not try to pass off hundreds of blank pages as its healthcare policy.” She added that the book contained “512 pages, 13 executive orders, and 11 pieces of healthcare legislation.”

McEnany also told the Washington Examiner:

“This book contains all of the executive orders and legislation President Trump has signed, which have brought down healthcare premiums and drug costs that were skyrocketing during Obama/Biden; increased access to care while Obama/Biden lied that you would be able to keep your doctor and your plan; and improved the quality of care, including protecting preexisting conditions.”

Trump spoke about a new health care plan during the “60 Minutes” interview where he said, “It is fully developed. It’s going to be announced very soon.”

“We won’t do anything and no plan unless we have preexisting conditions covered,” Trump added.
