Transcript for Trump Attacks Clinton While Appearing to Flip-Flop on Immigration
Now, to the race for president. And Donald Trump's new campaign team has now been in place for a week and it would seem trump is sticking to the script. Turning up the heat on Hillary Clinton and the Clinton foundation, but new headlines about trump donating to the Clinton foundation, too. And we stay focused here on those key battlegrounds. A new poll tonight, showing the race very tight in north Carolina. Clinton and trump in a dead heat. And trump this evening making very overt pleas to hispanic and african-american voters to give him a second look. But will it work? ABC's Jonathan Karl with what he's now saying. Reporter: It seems, for now at least, there's a new Donald Trump. Relentlessly on message, focused squarely on taking down Hillary Clinton. Her actions are criminal. They are purposeful and they're totally calculated. She knew what she was doing. Reporter: For the candidate who once promised to outlaw teleprompters, they are now ever-present. And as he aims at Hillary Clinton, trump is also trying to soften his image. I think we're doing really great with minority voters. Are you doing anything specifically to reach out to them? Absolutely, always. Reporter: Actually, the overt appeal to african-americans and hispanic voters is new. Trump is making a controversial pitch, implying all virtually minorities live in crime-ridden and improvished neighborhoods. To the african-american voter -- great people -- to the hispanic voter, I'll be able to make sure that when you walk down the street in your inner city or whatever you are, you're not going to be shot. Your child isn't going to be shot. Reporter: It's not trump's only change. During the primaries, he outlined the hardest of hard lines on immigration, promising to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants. You're going to have a deportation force. We're rounding them up in a very humane way, in a very nice way. Reporter: Now he's talking about dropping that proposal. There certainly can be a softening, because we're not looking to hurt people. Reporter: That's a big flip flop on a core issue, but the trump supporters we spoke with don't seem to mind. So you're okay with him changing his position on that? I want him to change his position. That's the best way. Don't be sub bortubborn, his way or the highway. We can't afford that anymore, you have to work with it. And Jon Karl live with us in Mississippi. We heard the supporters you just talked to there, if trump softens on immigration, it seems fine by them. Reporter: No question that the suspect porters are with him no matter what, but David, one prominent hard line conservative supporter, Ann Coulter, said, I think this is a mistake, it sounds like it's coming from consultants. David? Jon Karl with us live again
