Donald Trump says he will work rapidly on issues like healthcare and immigration after his inauguration.
The US President-elect, who spoke after meeting the House of Representatives speaker, Paul Ryan, said he would do “spectacular things” for the American people.
“We are going to lower taxes, as you know. I think we are going to do some absolutely spectacular things for the American people,” Trump told reporters in Ryan’s office on Capitol Hill in Washington.
