Donald Trump, AKA “Mr. Build-A-Wall” is against deportation. He’s also against “mean-spirited” campaigning, and thinks the Republican party will continue to lose elections if they continue to come across as unwelcoming to people of color.
Yes, this is the same Donald Trump who said he would deport an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants (which would literally be impossible), also adding that he would ban all muslims from entering America. It’s the same man who has harassed Judge Curiel, and blasted him for being Mexican (he’s born in Indianna).
So where did the sudden change of heart come from? We’re not sure, but perhaps if you had a time-machine you could go back to 2012 and ask him. That’s right, just four years ago Donald Trump stood against everything that has been a foundation of his current presidential campaign.
In an interview with Ronald Kessler, Trump said
“Republicans didn’t have anything going for them with respect to Latinos and with respect to Asians. The Democrats didn’t have a policy for dealing with illegal immigrants, but what they did have going for them is they weren’t mean-spirited about it, they didn’t know what the policy was, but what they were is they were kind.”
When talking about Mitt Romney’s deportation idea Trump had this to say
“He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal. It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote. He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”
Now we aren’t saying Trump has taken a U-turn on his stance, but if he wanted to apply for the next Fast and the Furious he wouldn’t need any stunt driving courses.
