President-elect Donald Trump described Hillary Clinton as gracious in her phone call this week conceding defeat and hinted that he may take future advice from her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“Hillary called, and it was a lovely call, and it was a tough call for her, I mean, I can imagine,” Trump, in his first television interview since the election, told CBS' “60 Minutes.” “Tougher for her than it would have been for me. I mean, for me, it would have been very, very difficult. She couldn't have been nicer. She just said, ‘Congratulations, Donald, well done.’ ”
Trump, who redrew the political map with his win on Tuesday, carrying several states that traditionally vote Democratic, said that former President Bill Clinton called him later in the week to offer congratulations as well. When asked if he would seek the counsel of the former president, Trump said it was possible.
