The first extensive, post-inauguration interview with President Donald Trump was scheduled to air Wednesday night on ABC News.

Judging by what has been released thus far, ABC News anchor David Muir questioned Trump on a relatively wide range of subjects. The president has been in office five days and has already stirred up quite a bit of controversy with his executive actions and penchant for communicating without much of a filter.

In the interview with Muir, Trump will talk about the construction of a wall along the southern border of the United States, which he also addressed in a speech Wednesday. The president said the wall, one of his major campaign promises, could go up soon. U.S. taxpayers will apparently have to cover the cost, which Trump had previously estimated could total up to $10 billion, but the president promised Americans would be reimbursed in his ABC News interview.

"All it is, is we'll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico," Trump said. "I'm just telling you there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form. What I'm doing is good for the United States. It's also going to be good for Mexico. We want to have a very stable, very solid Mexico."

Mexican leaders have repeatedly said they would not pay for the wall. Asked when construction would start, Trump responded it could begin within months. "As soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it," he told ABC News. "I would say in months, yeah."

The interview with Muir also touches on Trump's policy on torture. The president said he thinks torture works but would rely on his cabinet appointees to come up with policy.

"We have to fight fire with fire," Trump said, while saying he would trust the opinions of his appointees Secretary of Defense James Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

The interview with Trump was scheduled to air at 10 p.m. EST. You can find a stream of ABC News here.
