Trump's past "60 Minutes" moments

President Trump was interviewed by "60 Minutes'" Lesley Stahl Thursday for an episode airing on Sunday and discussed how the Saudis could be behind the disappearance and possible murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The details: In this interview, the president also talks tariffs, China, North Korea, Russia, NATO, global warming, his treatment of the Brett Kavanaugh accuser, according to CBS. Though this will be Trump's first interview with the program as president, it won't be the first time he's been featured on "60 Minutes."

A look back

In 1985 Trump had his first "60 Minutes" experience with Mike Wallace where he was interviewed about his real estate business. Wallace interviewed other Trump Tower tenants who accused him of driving up rent prices to evict them and called him arrogant. His response was "I think I’m right. And when I think I’m right, nothing bothers me.”

In 2015 while on the campaign trail, Trump was asked about a man making an anti-Muslim statement during a rally and he responded with "I love the Muslims....but like anything else you have people with problems."

In 2016 Trump and then running-mate Mike Pence sat across from Leslie Stahl and were asked about the country's fight against ISIS. "We have to wipe out ISIS…We have no choice. Hillary Clinton invented ISIS with her stupid policies," Trump said.

In 2016 President-Elect Trump sat with his family in a chair across from "60 Minutes" correspondent Leslie Stahl and flipped his position on affordable health care, saying people with pre-extended conditions would still be covered after a repeal of Obamacare, and lauded Hillary Clinton as a "great competitor" despite his criticism on the campaign trail.
