“The best talent of America.”
That’s what the President of the United States said in his first interview since he became President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying he “wouldn’t be president without a great talent.”
In his first remarks as president-elect, Trump said he was “really thrilled” with the result of the election, saying the results show that “there are people that want to win and that want change and that don’t want to be part of the status quo.”
He added that he was confident that the incoming administration would deliver the kind of “tremendous change” that was needed.
Trump’s interview with Vice News came the day after Vice President-Elect Mike Pence and the President-Election Committee announced their transition team for the coming months.
In an interview with ABC News on Tuesday, Pence had said he had a “tough choice” to make in his own party about how to go forward with the Trump administration.
Vice President-President-elect Mike Pence has told ABC News that he is considering whether to run for president.
Trump told Vice News that his choice of a new running mate will have “big ramifications for how the country is run.”
“I don’t know that I can take that advice lightly,” he said.
“But I know what I’m going to do and I know where I’m headed.”
“We’re going to be the greatest political talents of all times,” Trump said.
The interview was the first of several Trump-related events scheduled for the day.
On Wednesday, Vice President Pence will attend the National Press Club, where he will meet with the Vice President of CBS News, Leslie Stahl, to discuss the election results.
And Pence will appear on the CBS Evening News to discuss his transition team.
Trump also spoke to reporters on Thursday, saying that “we are a nation of winners.”
“It is an American dream, a dream that has been shared by generations of people,” he added.
“And that dream is to be a winner.
So let’s be winners.”ABC News’ Jennifer Nasser contributed to this report.
