Trump flip-flopped on his views of abortion, once called for legalizing drugs, and has said he favors universal healthcare. “Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they’re going to love Trump, and they already do”.
The in-and-out border visit came as Trump continued to dominate attention in the GOP presidential race, to the growing exasperation of his rivals.
A whopping 36 per cent thought that honor would go to Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida who is the son of one former president and the brother of another.
Trump, who arrived wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap, spent almost an hour touring the World Trade Bridge with the city’s mayor and manager, according to his campaign, before holding a news conference at the border crossing.
However, Trump still thinks the Hispanic community would still root for him because he will secure the border and bring back job opportunities to the United States, the report says.
Trump said the problem is violent crime committed by undocumented immigrants, which he claimed made his trip to Laredo “extremely risky”. Patrol agents had planned to accompany Trump to the border and hold a meeting with him but canceled after consultations with their national union, the National Border Patrol Council, said Hector Garza, president of Local 2455.
Although Trump has spoken extensively about immigration, he has “shed little light on his actual plans for dealing with illegal immigration beyond generalizations that have often seemed far-fetched”, CNN said. Rodriguez said he’d been invited to join a protest of Trump’s visit but decided it wasn’t worth his time.
Santorum spokesman Matt Benyon said Santorum’s TV appearances, including on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”, were timed to take advantage of the candidate’s time in New York this past week, not to boost his poll numbers. He also has praised globalization for tearing down barriers to worldwide markets.
His visit drew strong reaction from some residents of Laredo, which has an overwhelmingly Hispanic population. “But he’s not going to get it because of his words”, Castillo said in Spanish as he walked through a downtown park. “He is a racist”.
Greeted by both protesters and supporters at the airport, Trump was quick to label the local border patrol union members as “petrified and afraid of saying what’s happening” at the border.
Before leaving the border, Trump said that constructing a wall “in certain sections” is an option for better border protection. She said, “Sometimes honesty hurts”. That feud was sparked by his comments about immigrants last month and accelerated when he mocked Arizona Sen.
David Welshhons knows firsthand that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump can be a divisive force.
“In a speech in South Carolina, Donald Trump responded to criticisms from Senator Lindsey Graham by giving out Graham’s personal cellphone number”. Establishment Republicans ignore them at their own peril.
“In your heart of hearts, you want to see me debate Hillary Clinton”, Fiorina, the only woman in the Republican contest, said with a grin, drawing applause from more than 100 people at an Ames country club Thursday.
