The next president will take office in January, and Trump has been preparing to take office for months.
In a news conference on Jan. 6, the president-elect pledged to be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
But in reality, Trump has a very different vision for the future of the country.
In an interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly on Friday, the future president-for-the-most part, said he would be “neutral” on a range of issues, but that he would continue to advocate for trade deals, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
O’REILLY: So you’ll continue to push for trade, right?
TRUMP: That’s right.
O’RREILLy: And you’re going to continue to be a negotiator?
TRUMP : I’m going to be neutral.
That’s all I’m gonna say.
O: I’m just curious about what the trade agreement you’re talking about is, because I don’t know what that is.
TRUMP: I don�t know.
That�s why I donít want to talk about it.
I want to be sure I’m being fair to everyone.
O’: Well, you said that you would be a “neutral guy.”
TRUMP: Well, I would be neutral, but I want all sides to be fair.
O.: You want to make sure that you’re being fair, then?
You know, you’re gonna be so very, very fair.
That would be, you know, I think, the best way to do it.
O&M;: So, how about the military?
TRUMP (to O’Reilly): I would do it, but it would have to be in a way that’s so, you see, it’s going to save lives.
O:’ And the way to save them is by getting rid of the stupid War on Drugs.
TRUMP (cont’d): Yeah, and that�s my position.
It�s not a war on drugs.
You want drugs out?
I�m for drugs out.
O”M;’s the question, and it seems to me that you�re being a bit coy about that.
I think it�s a bit too broad.
You�re not saying, “We�re gonna get rid of all the stupid things in the War on Drug.”
But if you want drugs to go away, we�re going to get rid, I�ve been saying that for years, you�ll see it happen. And that�ll be my position, but the drug war has gone too far.
Trump: That�ll happen.
M: And then on health care, Trump said, “I�m going to do everything in my power to get it right.”
You were a supporter of President George W. Bush in the Bush administration, but you also voted against the bill.
TRUMP I never voted against anything.
I voted against Bush, but we won.
And you said on Fox News that you had a very difficult time with the health care bill, and you were surprised when the Senate failed to pass it.
TRUMP No, it wasn�t hard at all.
I mean, it was a difficult bill, it got the votes, but then they, you would say, I don �t like the bill very much, but they did it.
But it was hard.
I had a hard time getting everything done.
I have a great relationship with the senators who were there.
O?: What happened?
TRUMP That was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life.
I was going through this terrible, horrible health crisis, and they couldn�t get a bill passed.
It was like, “How do you get a healthcare bill passed?”
I mean this was, I had no control over it, and I was totally out of control.
M;: And so, what does that say about your ability to manage your own mind?
TRUMP This was the worst experience of my life, frankly.
O &&,M: No, no, no.
You have no control, you don� t have control over your own life.
You are, you are not the man you want to become.
You were the one who was a disaster, and the man who caused this, the man that caused the collapse of this economy, the person who caused the recession, the one that caused this massive, this enormous debt, which is $20 trillion. You didn�t manage your finances at all during this crisis.
You did not have any experience.
You lost millions, millions of dollars, and were out of it for months and months. And so I
