How To Rewatch Donald Trump’s '60 Minutes’ Interview To Hear The President-Elect’s Views On The Wall, Roe v. Wade & More
On Sunday night, the future first family appeared on CBS' 60 Minutes. Donald Trump spoke to 60 Minutes' Lesley Stahl in his first televised interview since becoming the president-elect in a victory that defied nearly all the polls' and pundits' predictions. The interview offers some of the most telling insight into the impending Trump presidency, so it's well worth watching. But if you weren't able to tune in Sunday night, how can you rewatch Trump's 60 Minutes interview?
During the one-on-one with Trump part of the episode, filmed last Friday at Trump Tower in New York City, Stahl covered a wide-range of topic with the president-elect, from his most controversial proposals and views, like whether he will actually build a wall along the Mexican border — Trump said he'd settle for "some fencing" in certain areas but generally still seemed committed — and his commitment to appointing pro-life judges — Trump didn't explicitly push for overturning Roe v. Wade but seemed rather comfortable with the prospect of women "hav[ing] to go to another state" if abortion access is not nationally guaranteed.
When asked about the widespread national protests against his presidential victory, Trump alleged that there were "professional protesters," implying some of the participants were paid and not genuinely demonstrating against him. Stahl also pressed Trump on whether he would, in fact, appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's private server, considering he encouraged "lock her up" chants at his rallies. Trump appeared to dodge Stahl's questioning, ultimately saying, "I don't want to hurt them. I don't want to hurt them. They're, they're good people. I don't want to hurt them. And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do 60 Minutes together."
