In claiming victory early Wednesday, Trump promised to be a president for all Americans in his first attempt to heal the divisions.
“Hillary called and it was a lovely call“, the President-elect told CBS” 60 Minutes.
“Hillary called, and it was a lovely call, and it was a tough call for her, I mean, I can imagine”.
“So I have instructed my team to follow the example that President Bush’s team set”, Obama added. “She couldn’t have been nicer”.
Donald Trump is going to be the next U.S. president.

“She is very strong”.
“And also, it’s hard to investigate other people”, Giuliani said. He said it was an incredible run.
According to The Journal, Trump said he favored maintaining a prohibition on insurance companies denying consumers coverage based due to so-called pre-existing conditions.
Demonstrators in several USA cities vented against the election’s victor, chanting “Not my president”, burning a papier-mache Trump head, beating a Trump pinata and carrying signs that said “Impeach Trump”.
Trump, noting he had never met Obama, calls him a good man and said the two had discussed both “wonderful” things and the “difficult” challenges the country faces. There were concerns that people in one state wouldn’t know much about candidates from other states.

“Look, the president’s views haven’t changed, he stands by what he said on the campaign trail”, Earnest said in response to a question during the White House press briefing.
The president-elect proclaimed that health care, border security and jobs will be his top three priorities when he moves to the White House next January.
Conservatives are going to favor most of these unilateral actions, but even when you approve something the president does with the stroke of a pen, the fact that so much power has been concentrated in the presidency is a long-term threat to the rule of law Gene Healy, a vice president of the libertarian Cato Institute who’s the author of “The Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power”.
However, Mr Trump declined to respond when asked by reporters after meeting with Mr McConnell if he would ask Congress to ban Muslims from entering the country.
“We’re going to repeal it and replace it”. “I think President Obama should leave it to the system we all believe in to determine, is she innocent or is she guilty?”

The full interview will air on Sunday.
Thursday night’s protests in Portland, Oregon had led to violence and rioting that were brought under control with tear gas shelling.
“Not my president”, shouted hundreds in NY. More than 100 NYPD officers and several Secret Service agents are keeping constant guard, with cement trucks and barricades outside. But in the day after Trump’s shock election win, which virtually no poll had predicted, both sides spoke of healing the deep divisions sown in a bruising two-year battle for the White House.
