In a first interview after being elected president Donald Trump sat down with correspondent Lesley Stahl on Trump Tower, last Friday night. During the interview Trump touched some key points stating what he plans to do for the country during his presidency starting on January, 2017.
The first key point he touched was the wall he said he would build. Trump stated that some parts would be fenced but others would have a wall, exactly between Mexico and U.S.
“It could be – it could be some fencing,” he said. “But certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.
Another point Trump touched was the deportation of people, he reassures he will deport illegal immigrants;
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” he said.
The third point Trump stated during the interview was the division between the White House and the U.S congress under the Obama presidential time. Trump stated that he would focus in health-care, immigration, and tax-reform with the help of the white house since the majority of them are republican as he is.
Next, Trump went to talk about the protests taking place and declared he thinks some protesters are professionals hired to protest. He also declared to not be afraid of him being in the government.
Don’t be afraid. We are going to bring our country back. But certainly, don’t be afraid,” he said.
He also commented about the violence attacks against latinos, muslim and african americans.
“I am so saddened to hear that. And I say, ‘Stop it.’ If it– if it helps,” he said during the interview, which was taped on Friday. “I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it.”
As somebody that use social media a lot, specially Twitter, Trump declared that he would continue using the platform but more restricted,
“It’s a modern form of communication. There should be nothing you should be ashamed of. It’s– it’s where it’s at,” he said.
Towards the end of the interview, Donald Trump was asked about his supporters telling him to lock Hillary up. His response was;
“I’m going to think about it. Um, I feel that I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on healthcare, I want to focus on the border and immigration and doing a really great immigration bill,” he said.
