Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally this afternoon in the crucial battleground state of New Hampshire, where Hillary Clinton is currently ahead in the polls.
The event will take place at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester beginning at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
Trump was originally scheduled to deliver a major immigration speech today, during which he would detail his plan for handling undocumented immigrants in the United States. But the campaign recently cancelled that speech, apparently because Trump’s policy is still being tweaked. When campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was asked this week whether Trump’s plan would include a deportation force as he had previously promised, Conway said that this was “to be determined.”
In recent interviews, Trump has said that he would be open to softening his immigration proposal. And in a Fox News town hall event airing Wednesday night, Trump polled the audience about what his position on the subject should be.
“Can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out,” Trump asked on Fox News, referring to the question of whether to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants. “Tell me? I mean, I don’t know, you tell me…How many people – how many think they go?”
Trump then measured the responses via applause, but he seemed to be leaning towards only deporting criminals and letting others stay after paying back taxes. This is essentially the same plan that had been proposed by Jeb Bush during the Republican primaries and which Trump criticized.
This is currently the last event Trump has scheduled for the week. He recently cancelled upcoming rallies in Nevada, Colorado and Oregon, according to the USA Today.
