Trump discusses racists, climate change, Clinton at NYT meeting

"In the meantime they continue to cover me inaccurately and with a nasty tone!"

Similarly, on the issue of torture, the president-elect said that he has changed his mind after his meeting with Gen (rtd) James Mattis, whom he is considering to appoint as the Defence Secretary.

Interestingly, The New York Times had aggressively criticised Trump in the run-up to the November 8 general election.

Trump also changed his mind about meeting with The New York Times on Tuesday.

During Monday's meeting with TV journalists, Trump repeatedly told them that the campaign reporting about him was "unfair" and "dishonest".

What, then, might he say to his bête noire? "He has told them he would like to do what he is used to, which is spending time in NY when he can". "I have tremendous respect".

On climate change, he said "I'm looking at it very closely" as he refused to repeat his promise to abandon the global climate accord. He added that he would like to fix the relationship. "I wouldn't even think about hiring him". The feature included some of Trump's most familiar online grudges, including against the American media.

On the Times, he said he was treated unfairly during the campaign but would like to improve the relationship. "I do read it", he told reporters at the meeting, adding in a rare moment of self-awareness: "Unfortunately, I'd live about 20 years longer if I didn't".

A September editorial of New York Times had dubbed Trump's campaign as "marked by bursts of false and outrageous allegations, personal insults, xenophobic nationalism, unapologetic sexism and positions that shift according to his audience and his whims".

Oh, don't worry: That won't last. He told the Times, "I disavow and condemn them".

And Breitbart, the conservative news site whose former head, Stephen Bannon, is now a senior counselor to Trump, headlined its story about the switch with "Broken Promise". That would be hard for Trump, many of whose assets are in real estate, rather than stocks and bonds, while others-including licensing deals with developers around the world-depend on his involvement for their value. Trump succeeded on the campaign trail in part because his rally speeches were like his Twitter stream - one outrageous declaration after another that left fact-checking reporters agog and exhausted as they fruitlessly tried to bring him, or at least his statements, to heel.

The letter, which was addressed to inspectors at the Treasury Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other agencies, asked the watchdogs to hold Trump's appointees to "the highest possible ethical standards" and "commit to diligently and constantly monitoring the actions of such appointees and mitigating conflicts of interest when they inevitably arise".
