On Sunday, Fox Nation host Piers Morgan appeared on FNC's "Media Buzz" and stood by his claims that former President Donald Trump walked out of his interview, which is set to air on Monday on his new show "Piers Morgan Uncensored."
Morgan said of the exchange, “It was uncomfortable. I’ve never seen him like that. He was very angry. Quite profane, in fact.”
He continued, “At the end, I thanked him, and I shook his hand, which is completely true. But then he just got up, barked at our cameras. ‘Turn the camera off.’ And then he walked off. And as he walks off, he muttered loudly — we have all this on film — ‘So dishonest. So dishonest.’ About me. And I just thought that was rude and churlish, and I felt that constituted a walkout, actually.”
Discussing the audio of the end of the interview released by the Trump team, host Howard Kurtz Kurtz said, “However ticked off the former president may have been, he thanked you, you thanked him. You said ‘great interview.’ It didn’t sound like he was storming off in anger.”
Morgan added, “I didn’t claim it was some ferocious, screaming, storming off. I just said that actually, right at the end, he got up, barked ‘turn the cameras off,’ and called me dishonest and walked away.”
Trump released audio from the interview that refuted Morgan's claims that he stormed off set. In fact, the audio shows that the two men thanked each other and laughed at the conclusion of the interview.

Talk TV, which is set to debut Monday, teased the interview — billed as "the most explosive interview of the year" — in a video summary that is dramatized with cinematic music and portrays Trump as being angry about the content of questions Morgan asked. The video and the alleged walkout were reported in an article by the New York Post, which is also owned by News Corp.
"Turn the camera off,” Trump says at the close of the video clip as he appears to rise from his chair. "Very dishonest."
But the audio of the end of the interview appears to tell a different story. The two men laughed and thanked each other, the recording shows. There are no signs of Trump's storming off set.
"That was a great interview," Morgan says in the audio at the end.
Trump agrees with a "yeah."
"Thank you very much. I really appreciate it," Morgan says.
That's when Trump says, "Turn the camera off." By then, the former president had already risen from his chair, according to his communications director, Taylor Budowich, who supplied the audio to NBC News.
"Piers got caught red-handed," Trump said in a statement Thursday, "and the interview that I rather enjoyed doing is now in shambles."
Budowich alleged that the show's producers deceptively edited the video by splicing the sound of Trump saying "turn the camera off" to make it falsely appear as if he made the statement while he was rising in anger.
As for Trump's saying "very deceptive," he made the comment after a frustrated Budowich called out Morgan for dragging out the interview and falsely and repeatedly saying he had one last question, only to ask more.
Trump had expected the interview to last 20 minutes, Budowich said, but it stretched on for more than an hour. Toward the end, Budowich called for the last question, but the audio appears to show that Morgan asked several more, including one related to "Celebrity Apprentice."
"Is that the last question? You’ve said 'the last question' four times now," Budowich told Morgan. "So I feel like you’re lying at this point."
"I'm not lying," Morgan said.
Trump then said, "Very deceptive."
Morgan then asked more questions.
