NEW YORK — It's been nearly a week since Donald Trump won the title president-elect. Some Americans are still asking questions like how did this happen.
At one point, even Trump doubted his chances.
"Unprecedented: The Election That Changed Everything" will be on bookshelves in early December. CNN’s tome goes behind the scenes of the election and there''s a big reveal from October a year ago.
Donald Trump allegedly told Chris Christie that he didn't think he'd make it past October. If Trump had tanked, he made a deal with the New Jersey governor to endorse him. It ended up the other way around.
What about Trump's campaign promises? Like immediately repealing Obamacare, building a wall, and overturning Roe vs. Wade? Will he keep those?
The answer seems to be a resounding, “Kinda.”
He says people with preexisting medical conditions will keep Obamacare.
“Because it happens to be one of the strongest assets,” Trump said during his first in-depth interview since he won. “Also for the children living with their parents. I’m gonna very much try and keep that in.”
He will still build a wall. But...
“It could be, It could be some fencing,” he said.
Trumps said at least two million undocumented immigrants with criminal records will be deported immediately.
He'll appoint a pro-life justice to the Supreme Court, but he's totally fine with states making their own laws regarding abortion.
Just as Trump seems to be softening his stance on some political issues, some late-night comics seem to be softening their stance on him.
While portraying Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon said, “I'm not giving up and neither should you.”
Guest host Dave Chappelle also said, “I'm wishing Donald Trump luck and I'm gonna give him a chance. We, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one, too.”
