Donald Trump has appeared to suggest that European nationals could face tighter restrictions on travel to the US. 

In his interview with The Times and German newspaper Bild, a variety of topics were discussed - including a UK trade deal post-Brexit and his thoughts on the European Union.

He re-affirmed his plan to install "strong borders" around the United States, with action to impose the "extreme vetting" of Muslims, to British politician Michael Gove - who conducted the interview.

When he was asked whether this might involve European nationals, the President-elect didn't rule anything out.

Mr Trump said: "Well, it could happen. We're going to have to see.

"I mean, we're looking at parts of Europe - parts of the world and parts of Europe - where we have problems, where they come in and they're going to be causing problems.

"I don't want to have those problems."

Donald Trump is due to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States this week.
