NEW YORK CITY, New York-- President-elect Donald Trump gave his first post-election interview tonight on "60 Minutes." In it, he credits social media with helping him get elected, but says he'll use it differently as president.
Trump explained, "I'm going to do it very restrained if I use it at all. I'm going to do very restrained. I find it tremendous. It's a modern form of communication."
Trump says he'll nominate a Supreme Court justice who opposes abortion rights and will help overturn Roe v. Wade. On immigration, Trump says his priority is to deport 2 or 3 million undocumented immigrants that he considers "dangerous." That's a change from his original plan to deport 11 million. And on same-sex marriage, Trump says he considers the decision already made and that he's "fine with that."
Trump made his first major decision as President-Elect today, announcing his Chief of Staff. Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican Party, is now his White House Chief of Staff. Priebus thanked Trump for the appointment, saying he will work to create an economy that works for everyone, secure the border, repeal and replace Obamacare, and destroy Radical Islamic Terrorism.
Trump also tapped Steve Bannon as his Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor. Bannon served as Trump's campaign CEO and was formerly the Executive Chairman of the Alt-Right Breitbart News Organization.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton isn't sitting down for any interviews yet, but she is speaking out for the first time since the election in a conference call to her supporters. In the call, Clinton said FBI Director James Comey's decision to send a letter to Congress in late October stopped her post-debate momentum. She added that the second letter, which exonerated her, only fired up Trump supporters even more. Despite the loss, Clinton called on her supporters to give Trump a chance to lead.
Some ballots are still being counter, but Clinton is projected to finish with a nearly 2% lead in the popular vote over Trump. That's a larger victory than Al Gore had over George W. Bush in 2000, although he, too, lost in the Electoral College.
