Christie: Trump Has Been 'Completely Consistent' on Immigration

Christie deflected questions on whether Trump is softening immigration stance.

At issue is one of Trump’s main campaign promises, to deport every immigrant who is here illegally and require them to reapply for citizenship from their home countries, through legal channels.

“I think he’s been very clear on this, we’re not going to have amnesty,” Christie told Raddatz.

“What we’re going to do is to get those who are breaking the law out of the country as quickly as possible to make sure that then you deal with people in a humane way,” Christie added. “I think that’s what he’s been saying. He’s been saying that for as long as I’ve been listening to him of late, and that’s what he’s going to do.”

When Giuliani was asked if Christie was responsible for Trump’s more nuanced policy proposals regarding the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants, he said, "The answer to that question is yes." He added that Christie is "not the only one" advising Trump on immigration but said "he is great value" to the Republican nominee.

Christie declined on ABC’s “This Week” to discuss the advice he gives Trump.

“Rudy can talk about whatever he wants to talk about. He’s my friend, I like him a lot and respect him, but I don’t talk about the advice I give to Donald Trump,” Christie said.

The New Jersey governor was also asked about Trump's calling Clinton a "bigot." He said Clinton started the name-calling.

"I’ll tell you this, this type of discourse in the campaign is just unwarranted, but it was started by Mrs. Clinton," he said.
