    President-elect Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., pose for photographers after a meeting in the Speaker's office on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016.

    Donald Trump told CBS's "60 Minutes" that he's willing to deport or incarcerate 2 million to 3 million people in the country illegally who "are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers."

    Such a promise was directly at odds with House Speaker Paul Ryan, who told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that "we are not planning on erecting a deportation force." Ryan said "I think we should put people's minds at ease" on mass deportation because the top priority is really border security.

    The network released portions of Trump's interview in advance of its broadcast Sunday night.

    Trump campaigned on a vow to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it. He also has insisted he will deport all 11 million people in the country illegally, with exceptions.
