The campaign for Donald Trump and Trump's fellow Republican supporters argued Sunday that the unpredictable presidential nominee had an outstanding, comeback week amid new leadership but still faced a barrage of questions about what's next - particularly about Trump's plan for the massive deportation of illegal immigrants.
Conway's comments come a day after Buzzfeed reported that Trump told a meeting of his Hispanic advisory council that he wants a "humane and efficient" method to deal with illegal immigrants but reiterated that any new policies must be in line with his security-focused platform.
"He said people who are here is the toughest part of the immigration debate, that it must be something that respects border security but deals with this in a humane and efficient manner", Jacob Monty, an immigration lawyer from Houston, told BuzzFeed News after the session at Trump Tower in NY.
"What he supports is to make sure that we enforce the law, that we are respectful of those Americans who are looking for well-paying jobs and that we are fair and humane for those who live among us in this country", Conway said.
Word of the announcement comes from a campaign aide who was present for the meeting but wasn't authorized to discuss internal campaign strategy and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Aww, how cute. Our erstwhile colleagues Mike Bender and Beth Reinhard team up for a Wall Street Journal profile of Kellyanne Conway, the "pollstress" who has stepped in to turn around Donald Trump's campaign.
Conway was shown a clip of herself calling Trump "vulgar" back in February, and was then asked if she stood by the statement.
"He's going to be spending more time here", Conway said Sunday on ABC's "This Week". He has since promised to deport the 11 million people living in this country illegally (not all of them are Mexican, but that's where his focus has been), and build a wall on the border between the us and Mexico to keep them out.
"I do and the reason is I don't like when people hurl personal insults", she said.
This was not the first time Trump has indicated a possible sea change in his views on mass deportations, a proposal that has drawn sharp rebukes from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and many other leading figures in the GOP.
"I think on Thursday we are going to have a plan that every Latino Democratic or Republican can be proud of as a very realistic, compassionate way of solving the problem", said Jacob Monty, an immigration attorney from Houston who also chairs the Latino-Jewis Alliance.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus later on the show said that Trump had a "great week".
During the meeting yesterday, Trump reportedly said he regretted those remarks. "Donald Trump's tax returns aren't, and I would like to see those be transparent".
