President-elect Donald Trump will give his first sit-down interview with "60 Minutes." Lesley Stahl interviewed Trump Friday at his residence in New York City for a segment that will air Sunday, according to CBS network.
Excerpts from Sunday's episode revealed that Trump discussed the Affordable Care Act and Hillary Clinton’s concession phone call. During the interview, Trump backs off his campaign promise that he would immediately and completely repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare law if elected. The business mogul, who won against Clinton, said that he would keep the portion covering people with pre-existing conditions, “because it happens to be one of the strongest assets.”
He also intends to preserve the part covering children living at home under the age of 26. “It adds cost, but it’s very much something we’re going to try and keep,” he said.
CBS News reported that Trump's family members, including wife Melania and children Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr., as well as Tiffany Trump, his daughter with Marla Maples, were part of the interview.
While talking about Clinton's call, he said: “[I]t was a lovely call and it was a tough call for her... I can imagine. Tougher for her than it would have been for me. I mean, for me, it would have been very, very difficult. She couldn’t have been nicer. She just said, ‘Congratulations, Donald, well done.’”
Trump's surprise electoral victory against Clinton has been met with protests in city streets across the country with slogans like "Not My President" and calls for the Republican's impeachment.
The episode can be live-streamed here on Sunday at 7 p.m. EST. The interview will air on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. on CBS.
