Trump Changes His Tune on Climate Change, Jailing Clinton

That's just some of what Trump said in a meeting today with reporters, editors and publishers of The New York Times. "Ice caps size reaches all time high", Trump tweeted during a 2014 blizzard. "I said, 'You know, I hadn't thought of that'". "This has been looked at for so long, ad nauseum".

The FBI closed the investigation into Clinton's emails after finding her not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing.

This was a far cry from the cries of "Lock her up" he encouraged at rally after rally during his campaign.

During an interview with the New York Times, Trump denied there could be conflicts due to a lack of separation between being president and his many businesses.

Earlier this month one of his aides told Reuters the NY businessman was seeking quick ways to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Paris accord to combat climate change.

The Manhattan billionaire said he would instead be holding "great meetings" about who to appoint to his cabinet.

Rhee met with Trump on Saturday amid speculation that she was being considered for education secretary.

He added, though, "My company's so unimportant to me relative to what I'm doing".

But the remarks to the Times represent the first time that Trump has outright condemned last week's event, news of which has circulated heavily on social media in recent days.

Trump's former campaign manager and current senior advisor, Kellyanne Conway, insisted the closed-door meeting was "very cordial, candid, and honest" - but another participant described Trump's behavior as "totally inappropriate" and "f*cking outrageous". In dealing with the threat posed by ISIS, Mr. Trump said in February, "Torture works, okay folks?.Believe me, it works". When asked about the Nazi conference in Washington, D.C., over the weekend, he said, "I disavow and condemn them".

"Syria, we have to solve that problem", Trump said.

"I think it would be very, very divisive for the country".

Noted climate change denier Donald Trump, who once said global warming was a scam invented by the Chinese, might not be such a staunch opponent of climate science after all. "And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do 60 Minutestogether". "We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead", she reminded them. This again, differs from his past insistence that he would walk away. During the campaign, he vowed to "cancel" the US's participation in the Paris climate agreement, stop all U.S. payments to United Nations programs aimed at fighting climate change and continued to cast serious doubt on the role man-made carbon dioxide emissions played in the planet's warming and associated impacts.

He said he is considering "how much it will cost our companies" and the effect on American competitiveness in the global market, according to a tweet from Grynbaum.

"He truly doesn't seem to understand the First Amendment", the source said.

"If I thought he was a racist or alt-right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn't even think about hiring him", Trump said, according to Maggie Haberman, a Times reporter who was present at the meeting. He also threatened to change the libel laws during his campaign. But he said he would be "phasing" control over to his grown children, although "in theory I could run my business perfectly and then run the country perfectly. You don't cure these people".

A reporter in the room asked him about whether he still intends to "open up the libel laws".

"I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't".

Concern has been fuelled by his appointment of Steve Bannon, a former editor of "alt-right" publication Breitbart to the post of Trump's chief strategist. After the meeting today, though - and I am being human with you here - I think, f*ck him! "There's never been a case like this", The New York Times quoted the real estate tycoon as saying in an interview.
