Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton's congratulatory phone call to him "a lovely call" in an interview slated to air Sunday.

During an interview with Lesley Stahl on "60 Minutes," Trump talked about receiving phone calls from both Clintons following his victory in Tuesday's presidential election.

Mediaite posted a segment of the interview after it aired on CNN.

"Hillary called, and it was a lovely call," Trump said of the conversation between the two former presidential candidates that took place early Wednesday morning. "It was a tough call for her, I can imagine. Tougher for her than it would have been for me, and for me it would have been very difficult.

"She couldn't have been nicer. She just said, 'congratulations, Donald. Well done.' I said, 'I want to thank you very much. You were a great competitor.' She's very strong and very smart."

Former President Bill Clinton also spoke with Trump this week, calling the president-elect Thursday to pass on his well wishes.

"He couldn't have been more gracious" Trump said. "He said it was an amazing run, one of the most amazing he's ever seen. He was very, very, really very nice."

Stahl asked Trump if he would seek advice from Bill Clinton during his days in the Oval Office. During a meeting with President Barack Obama Thursday, Trump pledged to call Obama when he needed guidance as president.

"He's a very talented guy, both of them," Trump said of the Clintons. "This is a very talented family. I would certainly think about that."
