The possible change of heart over climate change was revealed during an interview with editors and reporters at the New York Times.

I voted for neither Mr. Trump nor Mrs. Clinton.

President-elect Donald Trump walks to his auto from his plane after landing in West Palm Beach, Florida, US, after traveling from NY to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, November 22, 2016.

Trump, she told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," is "thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the president of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign aren't among them".

Trump, who takes office on January 20, also said he was thinking about climate change and American competitiveness and "how much it will cost our companies", he said, according to a tweet by a Times reporter in the interview.

I'm going to work very hard to bring the country together'. A count as of November 15 reported by CNN, for example, showed Trump winning 2,279,805 votes and Clinton winning 2,268,193, a margin of 11,612 votes.

Days after the white supremacist movement, known as the "alt-right", gathered in Washington to celebrate Trump's victory, the President-elect said he wants nothing to do with them.

But now he says: "I think there is some connectivity".

"You can not be president of the United States and collect money all over the world from people merely for putting your name up on a building", Painter said.

"In theory I could run my business perfectly and then run the country perfectly".

"The law's totally on my side. There's never been a case like this", Trump said.

Trump doesn't see anything wrong with this. "But they are really, really bad people". "I didn't know if I'd like him".

Trump has said he might have to build a fence, rather than a wall, in some areas of the US-Mexican border to stop illegal immigration, tweaking one of his signature campaign promises. And when it comes to waterboarding, I think it's pretty clear that that does cross the line in terms of torture. "That would be such a great achievement", he said, referring to a conflict that has vexed presidents for decades.

They call their effort Hamilton Elector after Federalist Paper #68, in which Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College would stand as one more check on power - part of the movement, at that time, to win ratification of the Constitution.

Trump backpedaled on his vow to change libel laws to make it easier to win lawsuits against publications like the Times.

Most recently, in 2000, District of Columbia elector Barbara Lett-Simmons cast a blank ballot for president and vice president in protest of the District's lack of full voting representation. Trump later tweeted that he meeting was back on and he was looking "forward to it".
