Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is shifting his focus back toward the key GOP issue of immigration amid a slide in polls from Iowa.
Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday that retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who took the lead in the first-in-the-nation caucus last week, is “very, very weak on immigration” and “believes in amnesty strongly.”
“He’s very, very weak on immigration, and I’m very strong on immigration,” Trump said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Donald Trump brought his brash, unapologetic presidential campaign to New Hampshire on Monday for a "pancakes and politics" town hall meeting with voters, hosted by TODAY's Matt Lauer.
Trump was asked about a segment in his book, "The Art of the Deal," where he said he would do nearly anything within legal bounds to secure victory. Asked if he would be willing to make campaign promises that he couldn't keep as president, Trump said he wouldn't need to.
"I don't think I have to do that. Everything I say, I can do. Everything I say, I will abide by," he said. He said his promises, after a four-year term in office, would be legitimate. It won't be like a "Bergdahl swap," where the U.S. government secured the release of an American prisoner of war in exchange for releasing five Taliban prisoners."I will abide by everything that I'm saying on the campaign trail."
One undecided voter told Trump she and others like her would vote for him "if only you would eat a piece of humble pie once in a while." Asked if Trump could share what weaknesses he had, the candidate declined because "then I'd expose the weaknesses to Putin and then everybody else and we don't want to do that, right?
Donald Trump:”They’re scum! They’re horrible people. They are so illegitimate. They are just terrible people.”
“The press has a lower approval rating than Congress,” he said at a morning rally in Atkinson, N.H.
“They’re scum,” Trump said. “They’re horrible people. They are so illegitimate. They are just terrible people.”
“Some of the people in the press are honorable,” the New York business mogul added. “But you’ve got 50 percent who are terrible people.”
Trump then argued the only group he dislikes more than the media are the career politicians in Washington, D.C.
“The other thing I’ve learned is how stupid our politicians are,” he said.
