"One of the things I'm going to do if I win, and I hope we do and we're certainly leading".

"But I think for him to interfere and say to the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the IRS or the Justice Department, 'You should not pay attention to law-breaking, ' that would be a tremendous blow to the rule of law".

Trump was repeatedly criticized before the election for warning that the outcome could be "rigged" and refusing to say if he would accept the results if Clinton won.

Bannon gained fame as head of the Breitbart News Network, one of the far right's favorite media in the United States and whose sensationalist reporting revs up racist, anti-immigrant and misogynist attitudes.

The president-elect scheduled the meeting with The Times, then canceled it Tuesday morning during a Twitter tirade about its "nasty" coverage, then reversed course less than four hours later.

Trump condemned an alt-right conference in Washington over the weekend where some members performed a Hitler salute and yelled: "Hail Trump!" after a speech about white nationalism. Since the start of his transition, he has also emitted conflicting signals on his attitude towards Obamacare, the law on universal insurance put in place by President Barack Obama that during the campaign he vowed to overturn in its totality.

What Trump's interview with the New York Times reaffirms is that the president-elect really doesn't believe in holding positions on anything.

Trump insisted that his company has little importance compared to his new responsibilities, but dismissed the idea of separating himself from it, which would be nearly impossible because it is made up of real estate properties. He said his brand is now "hotter".

On the matter of climate change, about which he had previously said he was considering America's withdrawal from worldwide agreements, he appeared a little more thoughtful. He added that pursuing the issue was just "just not something that I feel very strongly about".

"He said-I was surprised-he said, 'I've never found it to be useful.' He said, 'I've always found, give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers and I do better with that than I do with torture.'"

In his interview on CBS, Pence did not rule out the possibility that Trump could reinstate waterboarding as an interrogation technique against accused terrorists during his administration, a practice that Congress made illegal after its use during the George W. Bush administration.

As the polls came to a close on November 9 and the results came rolling in, Americans eagerly, or in some cases anxiously, watched Trump secure the coveted 270 electoral votes that it takes to win a USA presidential election. He has business entanglements across the globe, from China to Qatar to Venezuela, not to mention dealings with shady businesses in NY that federal investigators must keep track of.

Towards the end of the interview, Trump also said he recently met with a general who convinced him-perhaps surprisingly-that torture doesn't actually work, which is a big change from Trump's previous rhetoric.
