Trump on Muslim Immigration: "I Didn't Say 'Shut It Down.' I said you have to be very careful."

Wait, what?

“Frankly, we’re having problems with the Muslims,” he told Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo.

All right, fair enough.

"These attacks are not done by Swedish people. That I can tell you. We have to be smart. We have to look at the mosques and study what's going on. There is a sick problem going on."

All right, can't argue.

Trump said the incident shows why the U.S. should be wary of Middle Easterners.

"I would be extremely careful about people from the Middle East coming into our country," he said on "CBS This Morning." "We should be vigilant at our borders."

When pressed for specifics, Trump said he would want "good documentation" from travelers.

Wait a second -- you previously called for a ban on Muslim travel to the US, until "we can figure out what the hell is going on."

Now you just want to be "careful" and have "good documentation?"

...

Trump said his main focus is on better immigration surveillance, not a total shutdown.

"I didn't say shut it down," he said. "I said you have to be very careful. We have to be very, very strong and vigilant at the borders. We have to be tough."

I'm sure this is just further evidence of what a good brain Trump has, a brain that says a lot of things.

Trump's "tells you exactly what he thinks" scores will continue going up. After all, only someone who "tells you exactly what he thinks" would have such a hard time keeping a consistent line on what he actually thinks.

Why, it's almost as if he has one set of claims he makes to a Republican audience, guessing what they want to hear, and now has a second set of claims he's trotting out for a general election audience, now guessing what they want to hear.
