But Hope Hicks, speaking for Trump, said later the meeting was back on and he'd be "going to The New York Times" later Tuesday.

Engel noted the approach is the only way to satisfy the public's concerns about serious conflicts between the president-elect and his overseas business interests.

The president-elect also used the interview to defend himself against those who say his businesses overseas can lead to a conflict of interest when he takes over the White House next January.

The president-elect's remarks in an interview with The New York Times were tweeted out by Times reporters.

Conflict-of-interest rules for executive branch employees do not apply to the president, but Trump will be bound by bribery laws, disclosure requirements and a section of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits elected officials from taking gifts from foreign governments, according to Republican and Democratic ethics lawyers.

And he wouldn't say specifically if there was any one thing that he would be willing to submit to as president that would ensure to the American people that he is dividing his role as president from his business role as the head of this real estate and business empire. When he was asked about the sort of "fake news" that now clogs social media, Trump replied that it was the networks that were guilty of spreading fake news.

The mood is unusual for the poll, which shows America continuing to be divided over Trump and his potential as president.

Bloomberg, however, isn't waiting for Trump to make up his mind. "I really liked him a lot, and I am a little bit surprised that I am telling you that I really liked him a lot", he said.

"There's never been a case like this", he told the Times.

In February, the elder Trump refused during a CNN interview to denounce the Ku Klux Klan and one of its former leaders, David Duke, saying he "didn't know anything" about Duke.

"No matter what he says, Trump's 100 days plan and his proposed Cabinet appointees put climate denial front and center in his administration and put the planet and its people at risk".

"I'm looking at it very closely", Trump said when asked about the Paris accord, which India has signed and ratified as has most of the word, including the US.

About his campaign promise to jail Hillary Clinton, Trump said he doesn't want to "hurt the Clintons" and that doing so would be "very, very divisive for the country".

Trump responded: "I think right now ... well, I think there is some connectivity".

"It's just not something I feel very strongly about", he said.

Trump also repeatedly criticized The New York Times during the campaign, and he abruptly canceled a meeting with the Times on Tuesday.
