In First Interview as President, Donald Trump Rejects Reality

Trump considers ditching ban on torture and CIA 'black site' prisons

Trump considers ditching ban on torture and CIA 'black site' prisons

"No, I couldn't hear them", President Trump said, acknowledging the large crowd size. "And will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico". However, these are all statements he's made before.

In fact: Trump was trying to use a 2012 Pew report as supposed evidence of widespread voter fraud.

No questions were off limits in President Donald Trump's first post-inauguration interview, set to air on ABC this Wednesday in an hour-long special.

"You have people that are registered who are dead, who are illegals, who are in two states", Trump said. You have people registered in two states. And so on Inauguration Day, he overcame the embarrassment of Secretary Clinton's loss to comment on the new president's Inaugural remarks, comparing them unfavorably to those of the late John F. Kennedy in 1960.

On Wednesday it was reported that Trump is considering two executive actions that would revive the debate over interrogation tactics, including changing the Army Field Manual that dictates approved interrogation techniques and bringing back "black sites", Central Intelligence Agency operated locations that interrogated terrorism suspects.

Yesterday, Trump used "groveling" again in a way that suggests he simply doesn't know what it means.

When Muir pointed out that Trump's critics have said repeatedly that pillaging Iraq's oil supplies would have been a war crime, the president scoffed, "I don't call them critics - I call them fools". None of 'em come to me. "They would all be for the other side". I'll mention you - we see what fox said.

The president referred to waterboarding, which is now illegal because it is not part of the interrogation techniques listed in the Army Field Manual, as not really torture. "I have a big heart". "Pro-life people and they say the press doesn't cover them", Trump said, setting up Muir to explain why the media continues to ignore the March for Life.

It's cute to talk about #AlternativeFacts and #SpicerFacts and even sometimes #FakeNews but the sinister and terrifying reality of the Donald Trump presidency is his complete disdain for actual facts and information. But I can be the most presidential person.

Contrary to Trump's claim that the media is keeping the subject afloat, he and top White House staffers have raised it or gamely argued that the crowds were bigger than Trump got credit for multiple times since initial estimates showed less-than-historic attendance at the Friday inauguration. You and other networks covered it very inaccurately. The president said he thinks torture works but would rely on his cabinet appointees to come up with policy. "Absolutely I feel it works".

Muir: You say you're gonna launch an investigation. "As far as I'm concerned, we have to fight fire with fire", he said.

To quote the 45th president of the United States: "It's a disaster". "That speech was a good speech". Trump's claim relies on the people who watched the inauguration on online streams. ". The world is a total mess". He also attacked David, saying "I won't allow you, or people like you to demean that crowd".

DAVID MUIR: Let me ask you this ...
