Discussion: Trump Insists He’s ‘Not Flip-Flopping’ As Staff Waffles On Deportation Force

Now we just need some PAC to start producing ads about how Trump is playing the White Power movement and that he has no intention of Making America Great [White] Again. I’ll bet we could start pulling votes off the right flank as well as his general existence repelling anyone left of David Duke.


No, no, it’s not flip-flopping, it’s evolving.

Which is definitely better and a sign of admirable strength, integrity and “listening to the people”.

Unless you’re a Democrat, in which case, it’s a cardinal sin, to be derided and condemned vehemently.


Trump’s immigration plan is more mangled than his syntax!

If you were to Google Hillary Clinton as I just did, you’d get 247,000,000 hits. I suggest more people do that in order to catch up with her campaign and not be asked to focus almost solely on trumpet which seems to be the topic du jour. And yesterday and the day before.


BUILD the wall. THEY STEal JOBs FROM THe POOR ghetto BLAcks Which HITLArY IS racist ABOut.



Glad we cleared that up. If Trump says it isn’t flip-flopping (and thanks Donnie for bringing that into the conversation, since the media would have side-stepped the word all day), then it definitely is flip-flopping. After all, Trump lies about everything. It’s his tell.

But isn’t this just standard business practices? A new CEO comes in and promises great things and then when asked how replies “good management.” And then they don’t know the business, haven’t thought out the process, but by golly they sure do fire up the staff (base).
Some one should ask Businessman Trump which business philosophy he follows.

Not ‘evolving.’ More appropriate: ‘flailing.’

Donald Trump: First of all, I have to start a little bit differently. We’re going to build a wall and we’re going to create a border. It’s going to be a great wall and it’s not going to be very expensive. And it’s going to be peanuts compared to the kind of numbers, you know?

Scott Pelley: How are you going to build a wall–

Donald Trump: It’s called management.

Scott Pelley: --that is cheap and impenetrable?

Donald Trump: It will be a real wall. It’ll be a wall that works. It’ll actually be a wall that will look good, believe it or not. 'Cause what they have now is a joke. They’re-- they’re ugly, little and don’t work.

Scott Pelley: Let’s assume your wall has gone up.

Donald Trump: Good.

Scott Pelley: Eleven, 12 million illegal immigrants–

Donald Trump: Or whatever the number is.

Scott Pelley: Still in the country, what do you do?

Donald Trump: If they’ve done well they’re going out and they’re coming back in legally. Because you said it----

Scott Pelley: You’re rounding them all up?

Donald Trump: We’re rounding 'em up in a very humane way, in a very nice way. And they’re going to be happy because they want to be legalized. And, by the way, I know it doesn’t sound nice. But not everything is nice.

Scott Pelley: It doesn’t sound practical.

Donald Trump: It is practical. It’s going to work. They have to come here legally. And you know, when I talk about the wall, and I said it before, we’re going to have a tremendous, beautiful, wide-open door. Nice, big door. We want people to come into the country.


TRUMP: Well, it’s totally practical and, frankly, people can come and – you know, legally come in with work visas and other ways to come and, you know, solve agricultural problems if they have that.

But, frankly, you know, Ben is extremely weak, as you know, on illegal immigration and you can’t have that now. We have to have a country of borders. We need strength in our country. And you can’t be weak on illegal immigration. He is for amnesty and I’m for a very strong border.

If we had strong borders, if we had strong rules and regulations, you might not have had the collapse, which was the big story a couple of days ago, the collapse and the attack of the World Trade Center.

So we have very weak rules on immigration and I’m for making them strong and solid, like a country should have. And Ben is very weak on that subject.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But he says you still haven’t spelled out how you can actually deport those 11 million undocumented aliens who are in the country right now.

Will you do that?

TRUMP: Yes and through very good management that will happen and the people that are really good and outstanding and have had outstanding records will come back in and they’ll come back in legally. They’re going to come back in legally so we have a country.


Donald Trump would reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. as president, he said in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.

***“We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,***” he said in the interview, which aired in full on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

Pressed on what he’d do if the immigrants in question had nowhere to return to, Trump reiterated: "They have to go."

“We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country,” he said.

OK, so a specific question for Donald Trump - Will you support or repeal DACA and/or DAPA? Assuming of course that he knows what those are. His answer will tell you where he is on “humane” treatment of immigrants.

Some minor doubt about the mass forcible deportations language will probably pick up a lot of votes from brown people who were going to vote for him otherwise.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think anyone asked Donald: “If you’re keeping families together, wouldn’t you have to also deport the legal members of the family?”

Trump: transforming the party of Lincoln into the party of Dodge.

It’ll be humane (loudly) and unconstitutional (under his breath)!
