Trump: My Mass Deportations Will Be Done ‘Warmly And Humanely’

Poll-thumper Donald Trump dodged divulging specifics of how he plans to deport the 11 million or so undocumented immigrants during a Thursday morning interview with Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s “New Day.”

Trump has been vocal that he plans to deport all undocumented immigrants from the country, but has yet to tell how he will go about it.

Camerota asked, “How would you specifically go about it?”

Trump then dodged the question.

“Through good management and through a process. And the process is the bad ones go and they never come back,” Trump said. “They’re never coming back. The really good ones, and there are many, they will go and they will come back legally. They’ll come back on an expedited system.”

She then asked if he would use the National Guard or police to enforce the policy.

“I would use different forms,” Trump said. “It will take place and it will be done effectively and warmly and humanely. And a lot of people will be very happy about it. Did you know i had a good hispanic poll the other day?”

Trump then pivoted into talking about his poll numbers.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
