Piers Morgan cements TV return after revealing interview with Donald Trump Brighton News

PIERS Morgan cemented his return to television with a headline interview with Donald Trump.

During the interview on the new evening talk show Piers Morgan Uncensored, Mr Trump said he could not reveal whether he would run for office again, but added that “a lot of people are going to be very happy”.

The interview is part of the global launch schedule for TalkTV, the new venture of News UK, publisher of The Times and The Sun.

As part of the 70-plus-minute interview, Newick-born Morgan asked Mr. Trump if he would run for president in 2024, to which he replied, “For funding reasons of the campaign and all that I’m not allowed to say, but let’s just say this, I think a lot of people are going to be very happy.

Also during the interview, the former president told Morgan that he thought he was “much more honest” than he was.

Mr Trump said: “I don’t think you’re real. I think I’m a much more honest person in a lot of ways.

Morgan looked confused by the statement and asked, “Why am I not real?” to which Mr. Trump replied, “We’re not going to get into that, let’s finish the interview.”

The wide-ranging interview explored topics ranging from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to the 2020 US presidential election where Mr Trump lost to current US President Joe Biden.

The second part of the interview will see Mr Trump discuss the Royal Family, including him calling on the Queen to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles.

Viewers will also see the former president walk out of the interview, a moment that was previously revealed in a 30-second teaser.

Mr Trump then released a statement claiming that Morgan “attempted to unlawfully and deceptively edit his long and tedious interview with me” before the presenter urged the public to “watch the interview – it will all be there”.

At the start of the talk show, Morgan also delivered an opening monologue in which he said his show would be a “no-cancel zone.”

He said: “My mission statement for this show is very simple – I’m going to cancel cancel culture.

“I will defeat this insidious and joyless societal scourge with the most effective weapons to preserve democracy – common sense and truth.”

Morgan stormed off on ITV’s Good Morning Britain last year, then quit the show, after saying he didn’t believe the former Suits actress Meghan’s claims during her explosive interview with Harry and Oprah Winfrey.
