Trump Says Hillary ‘Couldn’t Have Been Nicer’

Despite repeatedly promising to send her to prison throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump had only nice things to say about Hillary Clinton in an interview out Friday. Asked about Clinton’s phone call to him after the election results were announced, Trump said, “She couldn’t have been nicer.” Describing the conversation as “a lovely call,” Trump said that “it was a tough call for her, I mean, I can imagine. Tougher for her than it would have been for me. I mean, for me, it would have been very, very difficult.” He went on to describe his rival as “very strong and very smart,” a far cry from the “Crooked Hillary” nickname he used for her throughout the race. As for Bill Clinton, whom Trump repeatedly vilified in his campaign, the president-elect said, “He couldn’t have been more gracious. He said it was an amazing run. One of the most amazing he’s ever seen. He was very, very, really, very nice.”
