During his visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo, Texas, today, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump insisted that he has the support of Hispanic voters, despite his controversial comments about illegal immigrants.

"I think I'll win the Hispanic vote," Trump told reporters. "Over the years, thousands and thousands of Hispanics have worked for me."

"A lot of what is happening here is because of the fact that Mexico is doing so well," Trump added. "And I don't know if that's good for the United States, but it's good for Mexico."

ABC News political director Rick Klein told Greta Van Susteren tonight that Trump is currently "the most dangerous person in politics."

Klein noted that Trump has unlimited resources, will say anything and has a real appeal for many Americans.

"I don't think he's likely to win Latino voters, but he has a message that is hitting a segment of the electorate," Klein said. "His appeal is for real, and there's a potential here for staying power."
