Mr. Trump said he has signed all the necessary documents to transfer management and operation rights of the Trump Group and other businesses to his sons, and citizens should not be worried about his yet to be published tax return. He said it’s necessary to repeal Obamacare, but a program should be prepared to replace it. He also warned that heavy taxes will be imposed on imported goods which compete with goods produced in the US.
Trump acknowledged that Russia was responsible for hacking the US election system but insisted he doesn’t have any deals, agreements, or debts with Russia. He promised that a report on foreign governments trying to attack America by hacking will be completed during his first 90 days in office. Mr. Trump said that as soon as he takes office, he will talk to Mexico about building a border wall and will ask Mexico to pay for it whether it’s a tax or whether it’s a payment.
