8:02 am
explaining his shifting opinions. trump was asked why he told one interviewer that the war in afghanistan was a mistake then told another that he never said that. >> trump said he misspoke the first time. he also gave a new reason for why the u.s. needed to invade. >> on afghanistan, i did mean iraq. i think you have to stay in afghanistan for a while because of the fact you're right next to pakistan, which has nuclear weapons, and we have to protect that. nuclear weapons change the game. i was always against going into iraq. in fact, i believe i was always against it. >> the moderators asked trump to explain other conflicting statements too. >> within one day you reversed yourself on syrian rev yfugees. >> you're right. let me explain. the migration had just started. i was very much like, okay, by the time i went back and studied it and they were talking about bringing thousands and thousands, i changed my tune. so i'm a very, very big
8:03 am
supporter of the second amendment. >> but in 2000, you wrote in your book, i generally oppose gun control, but i support the ban on assault weapons. >> i don't support it anymore. i do not support the ban on assault. in terms of immigration and almost anything else, there always has to be some, you know, tug and pull and deal. you have to be able to have some flexibility, some negotiation. i may have discussed something like that with "the new york times," but i would never release off-the-record conversations. i don't think it's fair, frankly, to do that to anybody. >> how flexible are you on this issue? >> not very flexible. >> your campaign to this day argues that more visas for highly skilled workers would, quote, decimate american workers. however, at the cnbc debate, you spoke enthusiastically in favor of these visas. so which is it? >> i'm changing. i'm changing. we need highly skilled people in this country. >> so you're abandoned the position on your website. >> i'm changing it, and i'm softening the position because

we have to have talented people in this country. >> and you're not releasing the discussion with "the new york times" behind closed doors potential. >> that's correct. >> which will have some asking whether on your immigration policies you're really just playing to people's fantasies, which is a tactic you praised in your book. >> i'm not playing to anybody's fantasies. i'm playing to the fact that our country is in trouble. >> after the debate, trump's campaign said the visa program he describes on his website is not the one he was asked about last night. >> before the debate, the last two gop nominees denounced this year's front runner. mitt romney said trump is a phony and a fraud and in a statement senator john mccain called trump's national security views dangerous. major garrett asked trump about those attacks. >> does it feel different to you today to suddenly have romney and mccain coming after you? >> no, i didn't know mccain came after me. i'm sure -- >> he said he agreed with what romney said. >> well, that's not nice. he has to be very careful. >> why? >> you'll find out.
8:05 am
>> with us now is rick david, political contributor for our digital network. he was john mccain's presidential campaign manager in 2008. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> you watched this debate last night after listening to a full assault on donald trump from mitt romney, from john mccain, and others. last night in the debate, they say they'll all support the nominee. the nominee is our guy. >> talk about letting all the air out of the tire. big day. started very hard, very vicious attack on the former nominee, which almost never happens. these guys don't get involved in campaigns after they've been the nominee, especially if they've lost. so it was extraordinary. the debate, attack, attack, attack on trump. then the key moment where they said, are you prepared to support donald trump if he's the nominee, everyone was sort of cavalier, oh, sure. >> you know politics.
8:06 am
has trump wrapped this up? >> yeah, it's wrapped. last night someone needed to land a knockout punch. and it didn't look like they even came to box. >> chris christie said the real risk if you alienate the voters and tell them your choice is wrong, isn't that why they sort of wrap it all up and say, we smo support what the voters do? >> i think the real risk is nominatie ining donald trump. he's the least likely person to win this election. voters don't seem to care about electability. they talk about wanting to throw a brick at the glass wall of washington. i think there's something to that. i think that's what the establishment of the republican party has to start getting used to the idea that donald trump is going to be their nominee. >> you talked about a knockout punch. in the past f a candidate said i'm changing my position, i'm softening my position. that usually would have been enough. >> but donald trump, his entire candidacy is not based on ideology or an issue position. it's based on i'm not one of them. and everybody on the stage
8:07 am
basically was the establishment and the people coming after donald trump. what they did is they gave him nine months to solidify his base. he has the most intense supporters in this entire election. when you look at the numbers, his people aren't going anywhere. >> does your party deserve this candidate? >> i think it's exactly what we created. when you spend years saying that the institutions that you have built, the republican party, the congress, the white house, are all corrupt and even within your own party when you throw people under the bus constantly, what do you think the voters are going to get the message on? >> i want to show you this. one point that donald trump made repeatedly last night was about his electability and his ability to defeat hillary clinton. he claimed multiple times that the polls show that he would beat hillary clinton. if you take a look at real clear politics average, he's the only one on that stage who would not defeat hillary clinton if the election were held today. >> yeah, he's the least likely candidate to do well. i think that's the panic that the establishment has. we could actually drop an
8:08 am
election in a very good year for republicans, a third term of barack obama is not an attractive concept. and she's taken that as part of her campaign. >> and just to be clear, donald trump said that was one poll. this is the average of the polls here. donald trump fares the worst. >> yeah, but i don't think it's an issue. when you look at these exit polls from these primaries, it's maybe 12%, 15% of the voters who think electability is the number one issue. >> what's interesting about this, it seems from john mccain and mitt romney and other republicans, they just don't think he's qualified to be president. they seem to be saying we genuinely worry about the future of the country if donald trump is president. >> i think their concerns are well founded and legitimate. they come at this with an open mind. they know that politics isn't bean bagging and you don't always get the candidate you want. this candidate particularly raises concerns about whether he could administer the nation. >> secondly, will he destroy the party? >> i think the party is in the process of trying to figure out how to do that to themselves. i wouldn't blame donald trump.
8:09 am
the rest of them have been complicit in this. they let donald trump grow. ted cruz stood next to donald trump for nine debates and never attacked him one single time. now he's complaining that he doesn't get enough time to beat him up. >> as nora said, you have nobody to blame but yourself. >> i didn't say that. no, i didn't say that. >> not me. >> i said is this the candidate the party deserves. okay. thank you. >> my pleasure. claimed part of a ballroom ing - dancer's leg, but three years later, she's about to run the race. >> i do think running a marathon is nearly impossible. >> of course. >> yeah, i agree. >> ahead, the
