Republican presidential candidate has softened his stance on his proposed ‘ban’ on Muslim immigration.
He said, “I would say to look at Muslim immigration and to look at immigration generally. We’re talking about immigration across the border. We’re talking about the problems that, we have tremendous problems we have on the southern border.”
He has reiterated it is only prudent to be flexible and the proposals he has presented to date are only starting points for negotiations.
Are you concerned at all that he might ratchet back his positions too far?

To hear Donald Trump explain his various proposals on Friday, including a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States—with exceptions, the presumptive Republican nominee made one thing clear: As of right now, they are all just suggestions.
Calling into “Fox & Friends,” his final television hit of the morning, Trump was asked by co-host Brian Kilmeade about the response to his comment that his Muslim ban was “just a suggestion.”
“Yeah. It was a suggestion. Look, anything I say right now, I’m not the president,” Trump said. “Everything is a suggestion, no matter what you say, it’s a suggestion.”
“I feel strongly we have to do something about when you look at radical Islamic terrorism, we have a president that as you folks know very well, we have a president who won’t use the term for the World Trade Center, he won’t use the term. And we have to do something. And you’re not going to do something about it until you know what the problem is,” Trump said.
Trump also said he has spoken with Rudy Giuliani about heading a commission looking at immigration problems in the U.S.
