According to Mediate, the highly-anticipated interview between former President Donald Trump and Kristen Welker, who was making her debut as the permanent moderator of “Meet the Press,” drew significant attention both before and after it aired.

While NBC News released preview clips of the interview, which included various exchanges with Trump, the full interview, which lasted 78 minutes, contained more contentious moments that were largely omitted from the broadcast.

In the first 9 minutes and 44 seconds of the interview, Welker engaged in a challenging exchange with Trump as she attempted to move past his repeated claims that the 2020 election was “rigged.” Trump insisted that there was ample proof of election fraud, citing various sources, while Welker countered by stating that these claims had been debunked by law enforcement and Republican officials.

The conversation between Welker and Trump highlighted the difficulty of confronting falsehoods, as Trump continued to assert baseless claims about election fraud despite pushback from the interviewer. The interview also touched on other topics, such as Trump’s potential testimony under oath and his thoughts on selecting a female running mate.

Following the broadcast of the interview on “Meet the Press,” criticism emerged, with some observers questioning Welker’s handling of Trump’s claims and her ability to counter his assertions effectively. Critics argued that she appeared ill-equipped to confront Trump’s bravado and lacked the necessary fervor to challenge him on the subject matter.

While the interview provided a glimpse into the challenges of addressing falsehoods in a high-profile setting, the full 78-minute conversation contained more extensive exchanges on various topics. It underscored the complexity of interviewing a figure like Trump, known for his controversial statements and insistence on his version of events, even when confronted with contrary evidence.
