Trump Stuns Supporters With MAJOR Announcement on Hannity

For those of you who fell in love with Trump for his hard-line stances, especially on illegal immigration, you might find this announcement kind of disappointing.

The question now is; will you still support Donald Trump, despite the softening of his stance?

From Fox News:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Tuesday he is open to “softening” laws dealing with illegal immigrants in a “Hannity” town hall with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

His remarks were the latest sign he is considering softening a position he has taken since the onset of his campaign.

Hannity asked Trump if he would change current parts of the law to accommodate law-abiding citizens or longtime residents who have raised children in the U.S.

“There could certainly be a softening because we’re not looking to hurt people,” Trump answered. “We want people — we have some great people in this country.”

“We have some great, great people in this country. But we’re going to follow the laws of this country and what people don’t realize — we have very, very strong laws,” he told Hannity.

Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump has reiterated that if he is elected in November, he would deport the 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally.

He also said he wanted to follow the laws on immigration policy instead of creating new ones.

“We want to follow the laws, you know, we have very strong laws in this country. And you know Bush, and even Obama, sends people back. Now, we can be more aggressive on that but we want to follow the laws,” he told Hannity. “If you start going around trying to make new laws in this country it’s a process that’s brutal. We want to follow the laws of the country, and if we follow the laws we can do what we have to do.”

During the town hall, the billionaire businessman polled the audience about what they would do about the immigration policy.

“So you have somebody who’s been in the country for 20 years, has done a great job, and everything else,” Trump said. “Do we take him and the family and her and him or whatever and send him out?”

This has to be a blow to Trump supporters who liked him for his position on illegal immigration.
