Trump Pivots on Immigration With New, Softer Rhetoric

In the past, Donald Trump has used strong language on immigration:

They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists.

We're going to have a deportation force, and you're going to do it humanely.

We're going to build the wall. It's going to be a real deal. And it's going to be a real wall. This is going to be a Trump wall.

"He said we're going to do it humanely, but there's going to be a deportation force," Glenn said Wednesday on his radio program.

However, Trump's pivot during last night's town hall with Sean Hannity had people buzzing.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

Here's a portion of the exchange between Trump and Hannity:

HANNITY: Any part of the law that you might be able to change that would accommodate those people that contribute to society, have been law-abiding, have kids here? Would there be any room in your mind -- because I know you had a meeting this week with Hispanic leaders.

TRUMP: I get it. I had a meeting with great people, great Hispanic leaders. And there certainly can be a softening. Because we're not looking to hurt people. We want people, we have some great people in this country. We have some great, great people in this country.

"He's talking about the illegals --- We have great, great people in this country, who are here with their families," Glenn said.

"Apparently, they're no longer rapists," Pat noted.

"And they're law-abiding," Stu chimed in.

What happened to the Trump who doesn't back down and will deport 11 million people?

"This morning, his campaign surrogate said that the campaign was evolving, and that's what happens in politics. Campaigns evolve. Okay, that's something to consider," Stu said.

Trump also, reportedly, will announce a plan to grant legal status that wouldn't be citizenship, but would allow illegals to be here without fear of deportation.

"That's amnesty," Pat said.

"There's a lot of ways to look at this. I am actually legitimately curious what you think he's doing if you're a Trump supporter. And if it's okay with you and why it's okay with you," Stu wondered.

"Because isn't that what Rubio was saying?" Glenn asked.

Will Trump supporters accept a repudiation of his tough stance on immigration?

"Is it the softening or was it the reversal?" Glenn asked. "This was his big deal. We're going to build a wall, and he just made it 10 feet higher."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
