Donald Trump has never held elective office before, so he's something of a mystery when it comes to governing should he win the presidency.

"He's smart enough to say what he needed to say to get the nomination. And smart enough to say what he needed to say in the general to at least give it, give a hell of a run for her money if not win this tonight," Fox News' Megyn Kelly said during election night coverage. "If he gets into office, do we know? I mean, given a number of positions he had and the fact he was a Democrat most of his life, do we know?"

Fox host Tucker Carlson admitted that while Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is a known quantity, all that is known of Trump is his passion for trade and immigration.

"Does that mean he's going to erect a 35 percent trade tariff? Probably not," Carlson said. "That is a real focus. Immigration, border security, but no. We don't. We know he's liberal on social issues."

Not a "conventional Republican," Trump is "pretty antiwar," Carlson said. "He's the most antiwar candidate Republicans have ever nominated."

Fox host Chris Wallace wondered whether Trump himself knows what he will do if he wins the Oval Office.

"Do we know how Donald Trump is going to govern? Do you think how Donald Trump knows?" Wallace said. "A number of people talked to Donald Trump after he won the nomination, he admitted to them, 'I never thought I was going to win the nomination.' My guess is that in his heart of hearts I'm in the sure as he sits there in Trump Tower he never thought he was going to be the next president of the United States."
