Immigration comments ‘will change the debate’
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, doesn’t think the hubub caused by Donald Trump’s comments on immigration are just a blip on the national radar. He sees them as a game-changer.
“Trump is going to change the debate. He will keep this immigration issue on the front of all of our debates all the way through,” the congressman told WND.
King suggested GOP presidential candidates will now be forced to declare exactly where they stand on immigration, an issue that otherwise could have been largely ignored.
Thanks to Trump, he said, the candidates “all have to have a position.”
“And some of those positions look so weak, they can’t be sustained all the way to the White House. So let’s find out early,” he said.
King has some advice for Trump when it comes to talking about immigration.
“If I were talking to him one-on-one, I would say, “Do not lose your will and drive on this. Continue.
“Whenever these groups rise up and attack you in the fashion they have, just have the attitude, ‘Well, if you don’t like that, it’s the truth and here’s some more.’ And keep shoveling the truth at them until they back up. That’s the most important thing,” added King.
