7:14 am
for some people. it's a referendum how bad the other person are and this is a election people are not motivated by. they are motivated by the fear of the alternative and what that means actually is not only is it going to be potentially continually a depressing election but how do you build a mandate for governing? whoever wins there will be a sourness to the victory and that is something you have to deal with when you get in office. >> proem the hispanic advisory counsel pill inspect its own candidate position with regard to immigration words like con artist and scam, never good for a nominee. and w"the washington post" has story how trump got from point a to point a on immigration. it seems everybody, including the nominee, is a bit confused here. >> it's weird to be confused on this signature issue this late in the campaign. usually in this part of the campaign, a candidate is reaching out to new groups and talking about other issues.
7:15 am
core constituency. was he taking the rough edges off of it as a pitch to republican voters who found him too risky and too volatile. that has been muddled. it has been budgeded a little. he had this show event in mexico which was also aimed at those voters which got some great reviews as a pure act of theater. no substance to it. but then that has been a little bit overtaken by the and confusion and the reiteration of his harder positions. >> john, "the new york times" is actually reporting that trump's campaign is planning pretty heavy for his visit to an african-american church tomorrow in detroit. they are also talking about scripting answers to questions and they have been submitted in advance. >> the old donald trump said if you use a teleprompter that qualifies you for the presidency and meant you have no thoughts
7:16 am
for this event. this is part of the new strategy to show he is a different candidate than the one that is frightening that group of republican voters and people think the key hurdle for donald trump can he inhabit the office? does he have the judgment and temperament to inhabit the office? the show events are meant to show that he can kind of behave more like a normal candidate. >> but is it genuine? >> you mean the outreach, itself? >> yes. >> well, i think they would like to get the voters in the african-american community, but i think that is not the only republicans who worry about him and it's a larger part of the electorate and trying to, again, make the notion he is kind of a traditional candidate. they are trying to make him look normal because what he is -- the old donald trump has a limited constituency. >> john dickerson, thank you. we look forward to seeing you on the late show with stephen colbert tonight and sunday on "face the nation." john speaks with new jersey governor chris christie and arizona senator jeff flake. that is sunday morning here on
