1. A Message About Hate Crimes

A Message About Hate Crimes
Asked what he would say to supporters who have been harassing minorities in the country, Trump replied: "I would say don't do it, that's terrible, because I'm going to bring this country together... I think it's horrible if that's happening. I think it's built up by the press because, frankly, they'll take every single little incident that they can find in this country, which could've been there before."

2. On Hillary Clinton and Her Concession Call

Will He Ask FBI Director James Comey to Resign?
"I think that I would rather not comment on that yet. I haven't made up my mind. I respect him a lot. I respect the FBI a lot. ... There's been a lot of leaking, there's no question about that. But I would certainly like to talk to him."

7. Does He Want to End Gay Marriage?

Does He Want to End Gay Marriage?
"It's irrelevant because it was already settled. It's law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I mean, it's done... These cases have gone to the Supreme Court. They've been settled. And I'm - I'm fine with that.

8. What About Roe vs. Wade?

What About Roe vs. Wade?
Trump said he will appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices, but would not actulally say he wants to overturn Roe vs. Wade. If the court does so, women seeking abortions whose state has banned them will "perhaps have to go -- they'll have to go to another state."

9. On Twitter

On Twitter
It's a "modern form of communication" that Trump will continue to use. "I think it helped me win all these races where they spent much more money than I did. I think social media has more power than the money they spent."

10. On the Electoral College

On the Electoral College
"I would rather see it where you went with simple votes. You know, you got 100 million votes, someone else gets 90 million votes… There’s a reason for doing [the Electoral College] because it brings all the states into play. And there’s something very good about that. I do respect the system."

11. He Still Says He Knows More Than the Generals

He Still Says He Knows More Than the Generals
"I'll be honest with you, I probably do because look at the job they've done. OK, look at the job they've done. They haven't done the job. Now, maybe it's leadership, maybe it's something else. Who knows? All I can tell you is we're going to get rid of ISIS."

12. Have His Business Interests Suffered?

Have His Business Interests Suffered?
"Who cares? This is big league stuff. ... We're going to save our country. I don't care about hotel occupancy. It's peanuts compared to what we're doing."

13. Will He Take the Presidential Salary?

Will He Take the Presidential Salary?
"I've never commented on this, but the answer is no. I think I have to by law take $1, so I'll take $1 a year."
