President-elect Donald Trump, along with his family, stopped by 60 Minutes for an interview with CBS’ Lesley Stahl, on Sunday (Nov. 13). The lengthy conversation covered a multitude of topics, including Trump’s stance on immigration, Obamacare, the Supreme Court, and more in his first sit-down since Election Day.
When Stahl brought up the reported cases of Trump’s supporters harassing minorities across the country, he delivered a straight-foward message. “I am so saddened to hear that,” Trump said. “And I say, ‘stop it.’ If it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras. Stop it.”
The 70-year-old says he’s seen “one or two instances” of these racially-based threats across the nation, since his election.”I would say don’t do it, that’s terrible, because I’m going to bring this country together,”

As for the anti-Trump protests breaking out in America, the New York native said, “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. If I weren’t even around doing this, and they’ll make into an event because that’s the way the press is.”
