He then went on to talk about the major promises made during his election campaign from building a wall to repealing Obamacare.

On the documents published by Buzzfeed
I think it’s a disgrace that information would be let out ... it’s all fake news. It’s phony stuff, it didn’t happen. It was gotten by opponents of ours ... It was a group of opponents that got together, sick people, and they got that crap together.
“I think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake to get out, just like Nazi Germany”
“As far as Buzzfeed which is a failing pile of garbage writing it, I think they’re going to suffer the consequences, and they already are.”

On if Putin tried to elect him
If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia ...
“Do you honestly believe that Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me? Does anybody really believe that?”

On releasing his tax returns
I’m not releasing the tax returns because they’re under audit... The only people that care about my tax returns is the reporters ... I won. I became president. I think you care. First of all you learn very little from tax returns.

On his businesses
“These papers are just some of the documents that I’ve signed turning over complete and total control to my sons,”

On Obamacare
“You’re going to be very very proud of what we put forth... Obamacare is a complete and total disaster... it’s imploding.”
“we have to do something about Obamacare. We don’t want to own it.”
“We’re going to be submitting as soon as our secretary is approved... a plan. It’ll be repeal and replace.”

On building the wall
“We’re going to build a wall,”
“I don’t wanna wait. Mike Pence is leading an effort to get final approval... Mexico in some form will reimburse us... that will happen. Whether that’s a tax, or it’s a payment... it will happen.”
“I don’t blame them (Mexico) for taking advantage of the United States. What I say is, we shouldn’t have allowed that to happen.”

On appointing Supreme Court judge
“I will be making a decision... probably within two weeks of the 20th.”

On Media Reforms
“I don’t recommend reforms. I recommend people who have a moral compass”
