President-elect Donald Trump said the three main policy issues he would like to tackle first are healthcare, immigration and “a major tax bill lowering taxes in this country.”

Emphasizing lowering taxes,  Trump on “60 Minutes” Sunday told CBS' Lesley Stahl that “I have both Houses and we have the presidency, so we can do things.”

Trump told Stahl that in his meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan and the Republican leadership, “They gave me a lot of credit. Don’t forget, I was abused four or five weeks ago, they said I was going to, instead of having all three, we would lose all three.”

When Stahl asked Trump how he could promise to get rid of lobbyists but in turn fill his transition team with them, he responded, “That’s the only people you have down there… I’m saying that they know the system right now, but we’re going to phase that out. You have to phase it out.”

The president-elect vowed that he would clean up Washington, saying “We’re having restrictions on foreign money coming in, we’re going to put on term limits, which a lot of people aren’t happy about, but we’re putting on term limits. We’re doing a lot of things to clean up the system. But everybody that works for government, they then leave government and they become a lobbyist, essentially. I mean, the whole place is one big lobbyist.”
