In the two months since he sewed up the Republican nomination, Donald Trump has blurred his positions on some key issues and tactics that helped him win more primary votes than any other GOP presidential candidate.
Among his promises during the primary: “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims,” a wall along the southern border, and the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants. He opposed increasing the minimum wage and favored tax cuts for the wealthy.
His national-security policy now has shifted to blocking immigrants from countries with terrorist links. “I have never liked the media term ‘mass deportation,’ he said recently on Twitter, referring to people living in the U.S. illegally.
