Donald Trump brought a telephone interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep to an abrupt end after the journalist repeatedly challenged the former president on his 2020 election lies.

Trump interrupted Inskeep mid-question and the line then went dead in audio shared by NPR on Wednesday morning.

Inskeep continued talking before realizing the ex-president had bailed.

"He's gone. OK," said the "Morning Edition" anchor.

Watch the moment from the 6:30 point here:

Inskeep said the interview had been around six years in the making.

It's not the first time Trump has shied away from answering tough questions.
