7 things Donald Trump said in wide-ranging NY Times interview

President-elect Donald Trump has cancelled a meeting with New York Times saying the organization changed the conditions for the session

American President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said the new U.S. head of state would not follow through on his campaign pledge to pursue an investigation into his arch rival Hillary Clinton. But she said that Trump believes it's time for Republicans to move on, despite his vows to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate her.

Also in yesterday's interview, he showed little appetite for pressing investigations of his Democratic rival in the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton.

The remarks come after months of Trump calling Clinton "Crooked Hillary", questioning whether the Clinton Foundation is a pay-for-play scheme and raging against the Justice Department for refusing to prosecute her for blending private and official business on her email server.

The move isn't going over so well with some of his most ardent supporters. Miller says the team had received more than 51,000 resumes as of late last week. "And I thought we were going to win it".

"I'm looking at it very closely", Trump said when asked about the Paris accord, which India has signed and ratified as has most of the word, including the US. But he said, "I have an open mind to it" and that clean air and "crystal clear water" were vitally important. The Times reported Monday that Trump used a meeting with British politician Nigel Farage to discourage the building of a wind farm near Trump's golf course in Scotland - which Trump confirmed Tuesday, saying, "I might have brought it up".

After meeting Mr Obama following his election victory, Mr Trump told The New York Times he "liked him a lot".

"I think it's time, maybe, for a general", he said. "My company's so unimportant to me relative to what I'm doing", Trump said.

Trump said he would study the issue "very hard" and hinted that if, after study, he was to moderate his views, his voice would be influential with climate skeptics.

"If Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that's a good thing", she told reporters at Trump Tower in NY.

Asked about the "alt-right" Tuesday, the president-elect told the Times: "I don't want to energize the group, and I disavow the group".

President-elect Donald Trump has received almost 150,000 ideas from people on how to "make America great again". He did tell the Times, "I don't think we should be a nation-builder" - an implicit shot at the American military's role in the Iraq War. Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, touted the website as "the platform for the alt-right". They include Mitt Romney, who railed against Trump earlier this year but is being considered for secretary of state, despite his foreign policy differences with the incoming president.

Trump relied heavily on the advice of his son-in-law, New Jersey-bred real estate developer and publishing magnate Jared Kushner, during the campaign.

So when he met with The New York Times, the entire political world was watching.
