“[Romney] had a crazy policy of self-deportation, which was maniacal," Trump said.
He now says Romney was "mean-spirited." His plan, on the other hand ...
“Mine is not mean-spirited. Mine is business. We have a country. You don't have a country if people are allowed to walk in, cross the border and stay here for as long as they want,” Trump said on Fox News.
