Trump begins row back on campaign promises

Donald Trump appears to be backing away from several election campaign promises - raising hopes that he could be more pragmatic in the White House than was expected, but also risking the wrath of his army of supporters.
The US president-elect has suggested that he could retain some elements of Barack Obama's healthcare reforms while one of his advisers appeared to tone down a pledge to "rip up" the Iran nuclear deal. And Trump has warmly described election opponent Hillary Clinton, whom he previously threatened to jail, as "very strong and very smart".
