Donald Trump interview: border fence, not a wall as Obamacare will be addressed, leftist journalists just hate Trump

60 Minutes landed the big interview with President-elect Donald Trump, addressing several issues carried over from the heated campaign against Hillary Clinton. Of course, leftists, like NY Daily News writer Gersh Kuntzman, were not happy, attacking Lesley Stahl: “Don’t send a journalist to a knife fight.”

“It could be – it could be some fencing,” Trump said of the border between Mexico and the U.S., coming off of his outlandish “big, beautiful wall” statements during the campaign. “But certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.”

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump said of deportation of Mexican criminals still in the country.

So Slate responded with a headline implying Trump “says he’ll immediately deport as many as 3 million peple.

Trump was asked to address the protests across the country and the New York mogul dismissed them: “They don’t know me” and “Campaign, schmampaign” as though his previous remarks don’t matter. Ultimately he said: “And I say, ‘Stop it.’ If it — if it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: ‘Stop it.'”

He talked about “thinking” about a criminal investigation into the Clintons, saying he “doesn’t want to hurt them” and confessed that he’ll be more “restrained” when he’s tweeting. “It’s a modern form of communication. There should be nothing you should be ashamed of. It’s– it’s where it’s at,” he said.

Stahl just wasn’t up to the challenge of interviewing Trump says the NY Daily: “…when Trump said he wouldn’t take on gay marriage because it’s ‘settled law,’ yet persisted that Roe v. Wade — which is also ‘settled law’ — must be repealed. Puncturing holes in flawed policy is a journalist’s job, again, one to which Stahl was not up.”

The fearmongering at Slate continued as they posted how the LGBT community is at risk under Trump: transgender bathroom policies which violate privacy (under the Title IX language), fear that gays will be kicked out of housing or employment (both of which are illegal), Trump might protect freedom of conscience for the bakers and florists, homosexuals won’t be granted asylum and hate crimes against HIV positive homosexuals, especially in red states.

Stahl asked whether people with pre-existing conditions would still be covered after Trump repealed and replaced Obamacare, Trump said they would “because it happens to be one of the strongest assets.”

“Also, with the children living with their parents for an extended period, we’re going to… very much try and keep that,” Trump added, referring to portions of the healthcare act that cover children under their parents’ insurance through age 26. “It adds cost, but it’s very much something we’re going to try and keep.”

When Stahl questioned whether there would be a gap between the repeal of Obamacare and the implementation of a new plan that could leave millions of people uninsured, Trump interrupted her.

“Nope. We’re going to do it simultaneously. It’ll be just fine. It’s what I do. I do a good job. You know, I mean, I know how to do this stuff,” Trump said. “We’re going to repeal and replace it. And we’re not going to have, like, a two-day period and we’re not going to have a two-year period where there’s nothing. It will be repealed and replaced. I mean, you’ll know. And it will be great healthcare for much less money.”
