President-elect Donald Trump backed away from several of his most controversial campaign vows in a Tuesday meeting with New York Times editors and reporters. Trump said he would not push for fresh investigations against Hillary Clinton over her emails or her family's charitable foundation. He also promised to keep an "open mind" about whether to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, saying there was "some connectivity" between human activity and rising global temperatures, even though he once dismissed climate change as a hoax advanced by China. Trump also said he wanted to get along better with the Times, which he has blasted for negative coverage during the campaign.
