Transcript for Donald Trump Attempts to Attract Minority Voters
Now to the race for the white house and Donald Trump's campaign try a new tactic signaling a possible shift on immigration as the Clinton camp releases a new attack ad this morning. ABC's Tom llamas is here with the latest. Good morning, Tom. Reporter: Good morning. We are less than 80 days out before election day. 78 to be exact but who is counting? A new ad war is now under way between trump and Clinton and what looks like a policy shift from the gop nominee. This morning, Donald Trump's new campaign manager kellyanne Conway signaling trump may be backing off his proposed deportation force when it comes to undocumented immigrants. You're going to have a deportation force and you're going to do it humanely. He will lay out the specifics of that plan that he would implement as president of the United States. Will that plan include a deportation force. To be determined. Reporter: This as trump is hitting roadblocks when it comes to minority outreach, some calling this statement offensive. You're living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose? And at the end of four years, I guarantee you that I will get over 95% of thefrican-american vote, I promise you. Reporter: George asking Conway about it. Many in the african-american community saw that as insulting saying most african-americans don't live in poverty and that Mr. Trump was making those comments in communities that are more than 90% white. But those comments are for all Americans and I live in a white community, I'm white. I was very moved by his comment, in other words, he is trying to tell Americans that we can do better. Reporter: Trump's tough talk starting to come back to haunt him. This morning the Clinton campaign out with a new ad. In times of crisis, America depends on steady leadership. Knock the crap out of hip, would you, seriously. Clear thinking. I know more about Isis than the generals do, believe me. Reporter: And calm judgment. And you can tell them to go Themselves. Reporter: The ad argues trump is too unstable when it comes to national security issues. And as trump is now reshaping some of his message he's started debate prep. Sources tell ABC news trump will be watching Clinton's past debate performances from her senate and presidential campaigns and still getting advice from roger Ailes and eventually, George, he will be holding mock debates with someone standing in as Hillary Clinton. That's going to be interesting to see who that is. Thanks very much.
