Donald Trump, 2012: Romney's Policy of Self-Deportation Was "Crazy," "Maniacal;" Romney Lost All the Votes of Those "Inspired to Come Into this Country"

The Art of the Deal means selling what the public's buying.

"He had a crazy policy of self-deportation, which was maniacal," Trump said. "It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote ... He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country."


"The Democrats didn't have a policy for dealing with illegal immigrants," Trump told Newsmax. "But what they did have going for them is they weren't mean-spirited about it."


"For people that have been here for years that have been hard-workers, have good jobs, they're supporting their family... it's very, very tough to just say, 'By the way, 22 years, you have to leave. Get out,'" he said during an appearance on Fox News. "I'm one of the world's very conservative people, but I have to tell you on a human basis, how do you throw somebody out that's lived in this country for 20 years."

When he had nothing to gain either way from his policy, he said that self-deportation was maniacal, crazy, mean-spirited, and "very tough" (as in hard, or terrible, to do).

Now that he wants your vote he's "severely conservative" on the issue.

Hey, you all believe what you all gonna believe. You do you, as they say.

Trump is also telegraphing an interest in a third-party run, saying he's not thinking about a third party run -- "yet."
