How is Hillary Clinton out of jail

Trump reluctant to pursue Clinton

When asked whether he would rule out investigations against Clinton in connection with her foundation or the use of a private e-mail server as Secretary of State granted by her, the future US President Donald Trump said in an interview with the "New York Times" according to information of the sheet "No". At the same time, he said he "didn't want to hurt" the Clintons and move forward. "I'm not aiming to go through it again," said Trump, according to a Twitter message from the interviewer.

In the second television duel on October 9, Trump threatened the Democrat that he would appoint a special investigator to deal with her if he won the election. In the third and final television duel on October 19, he even threatened her with jail for her email affair. During Trump's election campaign events, the chorus "Lock her up!" Rang out, with which Trump's supporters reviled the ex-foreign minister. Shortly after the election, Trump said that pursuing Clinton was not a priority for him.

Trump: Some connection between climate change and humans

Trump also commented on climate change in the interview. He sees a connection between climate change and human influence. "Kind of, it depends how much." With regard to regulations, he said that when he thinks about climate change, he always thinks about the costs for US companies and the consequences for competitiveness. When asked whether the US would withdraw from international climate agreements under his leadership, Trump said: "I will look into it very carefully. I am open to the whole thing." During the election campaign, Trump had negated man-made climate change and said he wanted to terminate corresponding agreements.

Trump is distancing himself from the alt-right movement

In the interview with the New York Times, Trump also distanced himself from the right-wing extremist Alt-Right movement, which celebrated his election victory with Nazi slogans and the Hitler salute. "I don't want to give this group a boost and I don't recognize them," said Trump.

Earlier, the newspaper had asked Trump in an editorial to "unequivocally condemn" the "toxic propaganda" of the alt-right movement, which he had "pulled out of the shadows" during his election campaign. Trump "fell silent" on the short message service Twitter after around 200 "white nationalists" celebrated a "very public coming-out party full of racist and anti-Semitic filth" on Saturday in Washington, the New York Times wrote.

"Heil Trump!" - shouts

The event was hosted by the National Policy Institute, not far from the White House. On Monday the magazine "The Atlantic" published a video of the appearance of the institute director Richard Spencer, who gave his speech on Trump's election victory with the exclamation "Heil our Volk! Sieg Heil!" finished. Some listeners repeated the Nazi slogans in chants and showed the Hitler salute. According to the journalists present, some of them also shouted “Heil Trump!”.

Spencer, known as a racist, told the New York Times that the alt-right movement has "a spiritual connection, or, one could say, a deeper connection with Donald Trump" than most other Republicans.

Trump himself had caused outrage several times during the election campaign with derogatory remarks about Muslims and immigrants. After his election victory, the right-wing populist billionaire made the controversial former head of the ultra-conservative website "Breitbart News", Stephen Bannon, his chief strategist. "Breitbart News" is an important forum for the alt-right movement.
