Trump caused a major uproar earlier this week when he seemed to be backing off on one of his biggest campaign promises – the forced deportation of the approximately 11 illegal immigrants in the United States.
During a town hall meeting on Tuesday, Fox News host, Sean Hannity, asked Trump if he would change current parts of the law to accommodate law-abiding citizens or longtime residents who have raised children in the U.S.
“There could certainly be a softening because we’re not looking to hurt people,” Trump answered. “We want people — we have some great people in this country.”
But then two days later, in an interview with CNN’s Andersen Cooper, Trump appeared to deny any “softening.”
Reminded by Cooper of his comments to Hannity, Trump said, “I don’t think it’s a softening, I’ve had people say it’s a hardening, actually.”
Not since the great Lite Beer controversy of the 1970s (“Tastes Great … Less Filling”) has there been such heated debate on a topic of national interest.
In an effort to bring some clarity to the subject, a reporter asked Melania Trump to weigh in on the matter… Is it “softening” or “hardening?”
Too savvy to be tripped up on such a hot topic, Melania replied, “I don’t know. I don’t touch subject.”
Asked to comment on his confusing statements, Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, said, “ I am personally going to look into this.”
Perhaps the issue will become clearer in the coming days.
Looks like for now, we may all just have to wait for Trump to reveal himself.
