Donald Trump's first interview as president-elect on "60 Minutes" aired Sunday, addressing many issues that have arisen since his election.

Snippets of the interview had been released already -- in his conversation with Lesley Stahl, Trump elaborated on his planned Mexican border wall and the Affordable Care Act.  However, since his win, reports of violence and harassment against minorities by Trump supporters have ramped up.

Trump directly addressed those supporters in the interview, saying, "Stop it."

His son, Donald Jr., urged those made fearful by the attacks not to fear.

But former presidential candidate Evan McMullin found that hypocritical.

WATCH  | Trump also said he would not take a salary as president. Earlier on Sunday, Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani insisted Trump was not using the presidency to make money, as he was already rich (skip to 2:05 above). The U.S. president makes $400,000 per year

Trump continued to insist the presidency was not about his brand.

It's law. It was settled in the Supreme Court. I'm fine with that.
Donald Trump, on gay marriage

Marriage equality and abortion

Trump said he would not legally challenge gay marriage.

However, he also said he was anti-abortion, and will appoint pro-life judges to the Supreme Court.

Obamacare and the wall

Trump also revealed that the Mexican border wall may be partly made of fencing. He also said he would consider keeping parts of the Affordable Care Act, including allowing children to stay on parents' insurance plans until they turn 26 and preventing insurance companies from denying coverage to those with pre-existing medical conditions.

He also said he would deport up to "three million" undocumented immigrants with criminal records before deciding the fate of others.
