Election HQ Trump: Only Core Issue in the Immigration Debate Is 'the Well-Being of the American People'
Donald Trump delivered a highly anticipated speech on immigration from Phoenix today, amid speculation he was softening his hardline stance on the subject.
Trump said that America’s current immigration system “serves the needs of wealthy donors, political activists and powerful politicians.”
“Let me tell you who it does not serve, it does not serve you the American people. It doesn’t serve you,” he said.
He said that the media and Hillary Clinton only talk about "the needs" of the estimated 11 million (or "whatever the number") illegal immigrants, but "that's never been the central issue."
Trump said there is only one "core issue in the debate over illegal immigration: The well-being of the American people."
"Nothing even comes a close second."
