Today show host Matt Lauer put the heat on Donald Trump during the president-elect's Time Person of the Year interview Wednesday morning. Lauer pressed Trump on everything from why he reportedly sold his stock holdings last June to questioning why Trump just can't seem to stop watching Saturday Night Live.

"You seem to understand that perhaps having fights on Twitter would not be appropriate for the president," Lauer said at one point. "I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter. In the time since you were elected, you've targeted the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, China, Boeing, the media, and SNL."
