President Trump abruptly ended his Oval Office interview with CBS' John Dickerson, which aired Monday, stating "that's enough" before walking away. Their conversation quickly turned tense when Dickerson asked Trump if his predecessor had given him any advice before taking office. Trump said Obama had been "very nice" at the start, but since there had been "difficulties."

Trump said Dickerson could "take it the way you want" when pressed on whether he still stood by calling Obama "sick and bad" while making those wiretapping claims. When Dickerson pushed on, stating that he wanted Trump's opinions because he's the president and didn't want it to be "fake news", Trump waved his hand and said:

OK, that's enough. Thank you. Thank you very much.
