Trump Spokeswoman: He’s Not Changing Immigration Position—Just The Words (VIDEO)

Donald Trump’s national spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, said on Thursday that her boss hasn’t changed his position on immigration—just “the words he’s saying.”

In a panel discussion on CNN, Pierson said that Trump’s nebulous immigration policy hasn’t shifted.

“He hasn’t changed his position on immigration,” she said. “He’s changed the words that he is saying.”

“That would be a change,” another panelist pointed out through laughter offscreen.

Pierson, undaunted, plowed on.

“There’s not a different message,” she argued. “He’s using different words to give that message.”

Trump himself seemed unsure of his position on immigration reform, turning to the audience of his Fox News town hall on Wednesday night to conduct an impromptu poll on the matter instead of discussing specific details of his policy.

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.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
