Trump Cancels Meeting With New York Times


23 November, 2016

It was in an extraordinary event, the Hill reported, live-tweeted by the Grey Lady's reporters and editors. "I have an open mind to it", the reporter tweeted.

Chants of "Lock her up" echoed throughout his campaign rallies, with Trump supporters angrily alleging corruption related to her use of a private email server while secretary of state and to foreign contributions received by the Clinton Foundation charity. But Spencer said he understands "where he's coming from politically and practically", adding that he will "wait and see" how the real estate mogul's administration takes shape. That storyline exploded over the weekend when a group of white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered in Washington, pledge fealty to the incoming president.

In other words, Trump went OTT (over the top) of the TV networks and spoke directly to the American people, as his predecessor, Obama, had done on occasion. "I was very impressed by that answer".

"I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't". "I think I will explain it that we in many ways will save our country", he said.

President Barack Obama made inroads with other countries - China in particular - toward new worldwide agreements to roll back global carbon emissions, progress activist groups have anxious will be undone by a President-elect Trump presidency.

Thomas Friedman, a New York Times columnist, asked Trump if he would back out of the Paris climate agreement.

Trump said he could run his business and the U.S. "perfectly" with no conflict of interest, the BBC reported. There is no such thing as a conflict of interest if you're president, which, if you look at the letter of the rules, may be true.

"The role of the press pool is critically important to our country, whose citizens depend on and deserve to know what the president is doing", the letter said.

While no statute specifically requires divestment by the president, all of them in modern history have put their assets under independent management, generally through a blind trust.

After meeting in an impromptu and off-the-record conversation, Donald Trump will be having an interview that will be published. "The meeting was a total disaster".

Instead, he was unapologetic about any financial windfall that might come his way by virtue of winning the presidency. He also claimed that Breitbart is "just a publication" like the New York Times except "much more conservative". He said: If those people are encouraged by me, I don't want that and I'm not asking that.

On Tuesday, he took a softer line on the treaty, saying only, "I'm looking at it very closely".

JULIE DAVIS: Well, the Donald Trump we saw today here at The Times was a different tone and some different positions than what we heard on the campaign trail. She says she appreciated the chance to discuss education with Trump.

# Trump on Steve Bannon: "If I thought he was a racist or alt-right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn't even think about hiring him".

Trump even suggested that his son-in-law Jared Kushner, an orthodox Jew who has helped write Trump's speeches on Israel policy, could be a player in striking the Mideast peace deal. He recalled that someone once told him, "You know, you might be sued a lot more", and he replied, "You know, I hadn't thought of that". He says the White House has traditionally not unveiled details of calls that Obama has had when consulting former presidents, and that's a precedent it wants to protect with President-elect Donald Trump.
