Donald Trump’s first in-depth interview as President-Elect on ’60 Minutes’ provided plenty of insight on his policies. In regards to his pro-life views, he revealed that he hopes to overturn Roe v. Wade, meaning women in many states will have to travel to get a legal abortion.
Donald Trump, 70, has appeared on 60 Minutes nine times throughout his illustrious career, but the Nov. 13 episode marked his very first appearance as President-Elect. He talked all about his path to the White House, in addition to addressing several more hot topics white chatting with journalist Lesley Stahl.
Known for being pro-life, he admitted that he plans to appoint a Supreme Court Justice who leans pro-life as he does. Donald said “if” Roe v. Wade were to be overturned, then the decision would be left up to the state. Lesley reiterated that some states could ban abortions entirely, which means women would have to travel for the procedure or be forced to have an unwanted baby. “Yeah, well, they’ll perhaps have to go to another state.”

Donald’s entire family was also present for the post-election interview including Melania, Ivanka, Tiffany, Eric and Donald, Jr. Of course, he talked about President Obama‘s Affordable Care Act, noting how he still plans to keep covering people with pre-existing conditions and children living at home under the age of 26. Donald also explained how he’s going to launch a new healthcare plan. “We’re going to do it simultaneously. It’ll be just fine. That’s what I do. I do a good job. You know, I mean, I know how to do this stuff. We’re going to repeal it 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 It will be repealed and replaced. It’ll be great health care for much less.”
Donald’s victory was nothing less than shocking, considering he was down in all the polls and faced several controversies during his heated campaign. After his win was announced, protests struck across the nation in big cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City, so needless to say our nation is divided. The President-Elect also sat down for a meeting with Barack on Nov. 10, making sure there was a peaceful transfer of power. After hearing his latest interview, one can hope he’ll stick true to his word and “make America great again.”
