“There is a great spirit going on right now. Something many have said they have never seen before. We are going to be the biggest producer of jobs that God has created,” Mr Trump said. “We had so many incredible people coming here. They are going to do tremendous things. And we are very excited.”
“I think a lot of industries will be coming back,” Mr Trump said. “Drugs industries have been leaving, have to get them back… Pharma has a lot of lobbyists and power… I hope the General Motors would be following…”
Talking about a possible conflict of interest, the billionaire politician said he did not have a “conflict of interest provision” for presidents. “I could actually run my business and the government at the same time. It doesn’t look nice but I could if I wanted to,” he said.
Regarding the contentious issue of his tax returns, which had been one of the key planks of the Democrats, Mr Trump reiterated that he would not file his tax returns.
“You will learn very little from tax returns… Now they realise my company is bigger and more powerful,” he said, adding, “I don’t think people cared at all. Maybe you care, but they don’t.”
