VIDEO: Donald Trump Says Hillary Clinton Is 'Very Strong & Very Smart' in '60 Minutes' Interview

Donald Trump was very complimentary towards Hillary Clinton in a clip from his upcoming post-election 60 Minutes interview.

The President-elect opened up about his congratulatory phone call with Hillary when she conceded the election.

“It was a lovely call, and it was a tough call for her. She couldn’t have been nicer. She just said, ‘Congratulations, Donald. Well done.’ And I said, ‘I want to thank you very much. You’re a strong competitor.’ She is very strong and very smart,” he explained.

Donald added that he also spoke with Hillary‘s husband Bill, saying he was “gracious” and “very nice.”

Check out a clip from the interview below…

    Great to see that Donald Trump has already turned on the people that elected him and won’t be trying to get Hillary Clinton jailed anymore. Have to figure that he will have half of the people that voted for him hate him in the first 100 days with his plans.

    Nope. Wanting to keep some of the good things that are in the ACA is not a turnaround. He never said it was all bad. Most Republicans have stated that there are portions of the Act that are worthwhile…but in total the Act sucks. As for asking for advice from Obama and Clinton – so what? I would imagine that he will do the same with at least GWB. Most President’s rely on their predecessors for counsel of one sort or another.

    Hopefully the first thing he does in office is have the FBI arrest her and send her to trial.

    The first thing he should do, is to replace FBI director and only then he can initiate investigation.

    what do you do for a living and what are your qualifications? none of us are perfect

  • FerCat

    Likely the half who are deplorable. :P

  • plez

    During the debates he said he would repeal Obama care and allow each state run health care.

  • j b

    Big Bird is more qualified to be President then you so shut up you deplorable bitch.

  • j b

    When he costs you your job you will hate him. Trust me I have seen his plan for the next 100 days. You are screwed!

  • j b

    I know right. You would think that he doesn’t care about the bunch of low IQ people who elected him that are only qualified to ask him if he wants paper or plastic.

  • j b

    With the Republicans in control of both houses it is more likely that it will go back to before Obama where the only people that had health care were the ones that could afford it. A new heart transplant will cost $100,000 again.

  • j b

    You just have to look at the people with zero political experience that he put in his transition team many of who will become his cabinet like his children. The U.S is doomed with the Trump family running the country like a dictatorship.

  • FerCat

    Lol! I already live in a Trump world. Yours is kinda tame actually.

  • Lo Mo

    I wonder if he’ll give in to Putin and call back NATO troops from the border. That way he would thrust Europe to Russia again + with Brexit, the European Union can start a contdown..

  • Lo Mo

    he shpuld throw all women in jails who accused him, bill crosby with sexual harrassment. there is not thing as sexual harrassement, it was just grabbing them by the pussy. these women should be proud to have been grabbed by the pussy by the president of the free world!!

  • Cruizin1960

    Provide a link if you are going to state that. Trump has stated that he wants state barriers eliminated so people can cross borders to shop for plans…that would actually eliminate state control of health care.

  • Darija

    He said it:

    TRUMP: “We will repeal and replace job-killing Obamacare. It is a total disaster.”

    THE FACTS: Job growth has been solid by historical standards since Obama’s health care overhaul took effect in March 2010. Since then, employers have added nearly 14 million jobs and businesses have been on the longest hiring streak in the post-World War II era. And 2014 and 2015 were the two best years of private-sector hiring since the late 1990s. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, has fallen to 4.7 percent, an 8 ½ year low, from 9.9 percent when the law was passed.

    Trump promised to repeal Obamacare. Now what? http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-obamacare-analysis-idUSKBN135171

  • jane

    yeah, cuz that reply really shows you have intelligence. lmfao

  • Gina

    Those fish lips are hella distracting.

  • Cruizin1960

    Did you honestly think that meant that everything that is in the ACA would be gone for good? There there was nothing worthwhile to save?

  • Jamie

    Are they absolutely sure that Russia had nothing to do with the outcome of the election?

  • j b

    Should be great if he starts the World War III between NATO and Russia by forcing Europe to defend against Russia by themself. Eventually the U.S will have to get involved and everyone young will be drafted. Thankfully I am too old to be drafted so can enjoy the wild ride.

  • sydney jane

    Just a reminder that President Obama did the same thing. He railed against some of Bush’s policies as a candidate, but then kept them when he got in office and even expanded on them. He also reversed his position on the health care mandate that was proposed by Hillary in the primaries. He was totally against the mandate as a candidate and said it would be terrible for the middle class, but included it in Obamacare. As every other president before him, Trump will learn that he will need to adapt. And, the fact that he has softened his position on this and also on immigration is a good sign that he is willing to listen. That’s probably the Democrats’ greatest fear, that Trump may wind up doing okay and people will want to give him another four years.

  • Do Tell

    All these presidents want to save the day when they are running. I believe President Obama also had many goals and every intention to accomplish a lot. But when they’re actually in the job, they quickly learn that this is not hocus pocus. They’re not gods doing miracles with the wave of a wand. That’s why they end up having to compromise and not doing many things they said they would do.

    I wonder if Trump can bear to stay away from his Trump empire that long. They’re going to have to tie his hands. I don’t care how good his kids are–they’re still not him. He’s a Type A and he is controlling & aggressive. It must be killing him to have to step back and trust other people with his “baby.”

    Also, if Trump got a second term, he’d be hitting 80 at the end. A lot can happen between now and then… even Alzheimer’s disease… and poor health. Trump should try to lose some pounds and take better care of his body.

    I believe a lot of what he says is not true to him. He’s a fighter and he will do and say what it takes to get what he wants. He poked fun at so many people during the campaign. After he knocked them out, he became friendly toward them. He’s just a ruthless man. He’ll probably invite all these people to his golf courses, so they will like him.

    Donald Trump actually cares a lot about what people think of him.

    He is being just as gracious as Obama was to his detractors. I just hope he doesn’t become Obama and not get things done and just cater to lobbyists, regimes, rogue states and corporate interests.

  • CmT1088

    None of us are in charge of this country, and none of us would sell this country to Putin. You call us “elitist” because you are completely lacking in logic, but that’s OK because there are millions of rational Americans who’ll make this clown’s life a living hell.

  • CmT1088

    Trump is an ideological whore, but the reality is this jackass has just handed America over to Putin. That’s who’s going to be running the show, and we should be coming up with a survival plan right now.

  • jane

    huh? you’re not even responding to replies on here, just talking yourself into a frenzy, lol

  • Topazthecat

    In this 2008 video interview with Donald Trump he’s asked about Hillary Clinton and he said that she’s very smart, and strong and that’s OK and he said that he thinks she’s a very nice woman and that at a minium
    she’ll be remembered as a great senator.

    And he now says this again on 60 Minutes.

  • Topazthecat

    160 republicans,both women and men in the House and Senate,and governors,are not supporting Donald Trump and president George H.W. Bush said he was voting for Hillary! And many evangelicals spoke out against him and his mistreatment of women too.

    CEO of Hewlett Packard computers Meg Whitman who has always voted republican said she’s voting for Hillary and compared Donald Trump to Hitler and Mussolini months before the worst came out about him sexually assaulting and sexually harassing countless women and teen girls.Republican former governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman also said he’s like Hitler and Mussolini.

    He’s such a sicko that he called his oldest daughter a piece of a** on a radio show interview years ago and said he would consider dating her! He also went into 14 teen year old girls dressing rooms who were beauty pageant contestants and who were undressed and told them he could date them in a few years.
