Donald Trump said the border wall might be part fence


President-elect Donald Trump's "great wall" on the border with Mexico might not be 100 percent wall, according to an interview with 60 Minutes set to air Sunday night.

In "certain areas, a wall is more appropriate," but "there could be some fencing," Trump said.

Trump also reiterated commitments to deport illegal immigrants, focusing on criminals but answering more vaguely when it came to law-abiding families, USA Today reports.

This contradicted House Speaker's Paul Ryan's view.

Trump urged his Twitter followers to watch the interview.

In preview clips from the same interview, Trump said he might keep parts of the Affordable Care Act intact, such as extending coverage for children until they turn 26 and forbidding companies from denying insurance based on pre-existing conditions. "Repealing and replacing" the act was one of his most-repeated campaign promises.

He also said he would be "more restrained" on Twitter.

In the meantime, Trump has been tweeting with gusto all Sunday.

The New York Times said his criticisms were entirely wrong.

Trump also touted congratulations from GOP leaders like Mitt Romney...

...and Jeb "Low-Energy' Bush, alongside the two former Bush presidents...

...and former primary opponent John Kasich
