President-elect Donald Trump in an interview published Friday expressed no regret for his inflammatory campaign rhetoric.
Asked by The Wall Street Journal if he had gone too far during the heated 2016 cycle, Trump offered a blunt response.
"No. I won," he said.
Trump was strongly criticized for extreme rhetoric he regularly employed to defeat his Republican rivals in the primary and to triumph over Hillary Clinton in the general election.
The Republican businessman, for instance, had suggested Fox News host Megyn Kelly pressed him at a debate because she was menstruating, floated a conspiracy that Sen. Ted Cruz's dad was part of the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy, and mocked a New York Times reporter with a disability.
Nevertheless, Trump emerged as the victor on Tuesday night, upending the political world with a shock upset over Clinton.
