President-elect Donald Trump will be returning to 60 Minutes tonight for an interview that’s guaranteed to be heavily scrutinized by both pro-Trump and anti-Trump camps. A fuss has already been made of Trump’s appearance of flexibility with Obamacare in his chat with Lesley Stahl, and now, comments about his immigration strategy have been previewed by the long-running program as well.
In a preview shared by CBS, Trump is asked about his controversial views on undocumented immigrants and provided confirmation that he plans to deport and incarcerate two to three million who fail to meet his requirements.
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” offered Trump in his sit-down with 60 Minutes. “But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”
