When ABC “This Week” Host George Stephanopoulos asked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Sunday how he would execute his wide-ranging immigration plan, the businessman repeated that it’s all about, “management.”

Trump’s immigration plan includes building a wall between the United States and Mexico and stopping a federal practice that automatically allows citizenship to those born in the country. The cost and feasibility of Trump’s plan has been criticized.

Stephanopoulos asked Trump to provide specifics of how he would execute this plan.

“It’s called management,” Trump told the ABC host in a live phone interview, adding that the United States is a country of laws and a country of borders.

Stephanopoulos again asked Trump to explain how he would execute his immigration plan.

“George, I’m telling you — it’s called management,” Trump reiterated.

To which Stephanopoulos said, “I still don’t hear specifics on how you want do this.”

“I’m going to get great people who know what they’re doing,” Trump responded.
