Donald Trump delivered a speech on Wednesday sticking to his hard-line policies on immigration, but on Thursday morning the Republican presidential nominee said he'll be "softening" his stance on the issue in a radio interview.

"The line last week [was] you were softening on immigration, then you come out with a very specific, very pro-enforcement plan last night. Where's the softening?" talk-show host Laura Ingraham asked Trump during the broadcast.

"Oh, there's softening," Trump responded. "Look, we do it in a very humane way, and we're going to see with the people that are in the country. Obviously I want to get the gang members out, the drug peddlers out, I want to get the drug dealers out. We've got a lot of people in this country that you can't have, and those people we'll get out."

"And then we're going to make a decision at a later date once everything is stabilized," Trump continued. "I think you're going to see there's really quite a bit of softening."

 

Trump's 10-point immigration plan includes building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border that Mexico would pay for, and it doesn't mention any immunity to protect certain illegal aliens from deportation, according to The Hill

"To all the politicians, donors and special interests, hear these words from me today: There is only one core issue in the immigration debate and it is this: the well-being of the American people. Nothing even comes a close second," Trump said in his Wednesday night speech in Phoenix, Az.

When pressed recently by CNN's Anderson Cooper on parts of his immigration policies, Trump responded by saying "it's a process."

"You can't take 11 at one time and just say 'boom, you're gone,'" Trump said last Thursday. "I don't think it's a softening. I've had people say it's a hardening, actually."
