that didn't take long
Donald Trump has made the expulsion of undocumented immigrants a major part of his campaign, but just a few short years ago he had a radically different opinion on the matter, CNN has discovered.
Trump explained that he didn't believe in deporting immigrants in a June 2012 interview with CNBC's Squawk Box: "You have people in this country for 20 years, they've done a great job, they've done wonderfully, they've gone to school, they've gotten good marks, they're productive — now we're supposed to send them out of the country, I don't believe in that, Michelle, and you understand that. I don't believe in a lot things that are being said," Trump said.
The comments don't do much to clarify how Trump actually does feel — by June 2015 he was claiming Mexicans were "rapists." "And some, I assume, are good people," Trump added. Compare the dramatic flip-flop, below. Jeva Lange
