Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Tampa, Florida this afternoon, his fifth visit to the state this month.
Trump’s event will take place at the Florida State Fairgrounds beginning at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting. Starting at 7:00 p.m. Central Time, Trump will be speaking in Jackson, Mississippi. That rally can be viewed here.
The presidential candidate speaks to supporters today amid criticism that he may be altering his immigration plan in a major way. Trump had previously proposed deporting all 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country, requiring “the good ones” to come back in legally.
Now, Trump is beginning to shift his language to sound not all that different from what President Obama is already doing.
“As far as everybody else, we’re going to go through the process,” Trump said. “What people don’t know is that Obama got tremendous numbers of people out of the country. Bush, the same thing. Lots of people were brought out of the country with the existing laws. Well, I’m going to do the same thing.”
He also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday that there “could certainly be a softening” in his immigration plan.
Prominent conservative commentator and author of the new book In Trump We Trust Ann Coulter is now criticizing Trump for this new language.
“I think this is a mistake,” Coulter said. “This could be the shortest book tour ever if he’s really softening his position on immigration.”
