U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will be “tougher on illegal immigration than any politician that we’ve ever had as a nominee or ever could have as a nominee.

That’s not going to change,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press’ on Sunday (August 28).

In a campaign speech in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday, Trump offered fresh details of how he would tackle illegal immigration on Saturday, saying he would crack down on those who overstay their visas as he sought to quiet criticism from conservatives.

Trump, speaking on the Iowa State Fairgrounds, sought to clarify his views on how to overhaul the U.S. immigration system after saying earlier in the week that he was softening on his plan to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants.

That stance drew fire from conservatives who wanted him to stand fast after he won the Republican presidential nomination in large part by a hardliner stance that would include building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. READ MORE OF THIS REPORT
