Like it or not, Donald Trump is moving forward as the President-elect.
And one of his first major public moves will air tomorrow night, on 60 Minutes, when a long, ranging interview between him and CBS News‘ Lesley Stahl will be shown to a horrified, uncertain nation.
Parts of the interview have already come out, of course, including Trump revealing exactly what went down between him and Hillary Clinton when she made her concession call to him after losing the election this week.
“It 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, ├óΓé¼╦£Congratulations, Donald, well done.'”
And it wasn’t just Hillary who called, either — according to The Donald, Bill Clinton called him, too, and sounded very nice in defeat:
“He couldn’t have been more gracious. He said it was an amazing run. One of the most amazing he’s ever seen.”
Now, while the interview will almost certainly contain a LOT of policy discussion between Trump and Stahl, we do know that at least one thing will get discussed a LOT: Obamacare.
Trump has long said during his campaign that he will repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has given health care to literally millions of poor people.
And yet now, he has already indicated he might flip-flop on that full “repeal and replace” he yelled about for months and months during the campaign!!
Regarding certain measures in Obamacare, like parents being able to keep their children on family policies until they are 26, Trump said:
“It happens to be one of the strongest assets. It adds cost, but it’s very much something we’re gonna try and keep.”
And it’s not just that provision, either — Trump wants to keep preventing insurance companies from denying people based on pre-existing conditions, too.
Guess what?! That’s great!!
That’s also directly opposite of what he angrily promised so many times during his campaign with all the endless “repeal and replace” garbage that served nothing but to rile up his base.
Something tells us a LOT of right-wingers are going to wind up very upset with Trump over the next couple years, because he has no policies and no ideology — he’ll simply change his mind time and time again!
We’ll have more on Trump’s 60 Minutes interview when it airs tomorrow night!!
