(CNBC)

Friday, 26 January 2018 06:30 AM

President Donald Trump said he believed some Republicans lawmakers who have taken tough stances on immigration would agree to offer citizenship within 10 to 12 years to young immigrants brought to the country illegally, according to an interview with CNBC broadcast on Friday.

Trump said Republican Senators Tom Cotton, John Cornyn and David Perdue and Representative Bob Goodlatte would be willing to shift some positions on immigration.

"They've really shifted a lot, and I think they're willing to shift more, and so am I," he told CNBC in an interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos. "We're going to see. If we make the right deal. I think they will."

The interview was recorded before the White House unveiled Trump's immigration plan.
