4:02 am
for him and he's going to win. he has won. >> reporter: but it's a work in progress. so it seems is trump's agenda. in his first big interview since the election on "60 minutes," trump sought to put his detractors at ease. >> i'm saying, and i've been saying it, don't be afraid. >> reporter: but at the same time trump sent conflicting signals with his first two appointments. as chief of staff trump chose a 44-year-old republican insider, outgoing gop chairman reince priebus, a conservative with close ties to speaker paul ryan. but for his chief strategist, trump picked a 62-year-old flame thrower, his campaign chair stephen bannon, an alt-right icon often described as a white nationalist. bannon is a former investment banker who made tens of millions of dollars from royalties for "seinfeld." >> what? >> no soup for you. >> reporter: he went on to

documentaries like "occupy unmasked." more recently he's been the driving force behind breitbart media. the website infamous for headlines comparing planned parenthood's work to the holocaust, op-eds calling to lock the door to islam, calling conservative analyst bill kristol a renegade jew and supporting the use of the confederate flag. the southern poverty law center sees breitbart as hate speech with him as the instigator. installing bannon and priebus on the same day is a mixed message for trump. his more moderate sute won't see eye to eye with bannon while his more extreme supporters will see priebus priebus as a creature of the swamp he promised to drain. >> my hope is he makes things better. if he does, we will all benefit from it. >> reporter: with that the lame duck president left the briefing room. david wright, abc news, new york. >> and donald trump is expected to announce more appointments for his administration this week but his aides aren't saying
