It was a sentiment that Trump reiterated during an interview with the "Today" show, also on Friday, adding that as president he would be "totally flexible on very, very many issues."
When it comes to the proposed ban on Muslims, Trump said on Fox News that he feels "very strongly that we have to find out what the problem is" and has tasked former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani with heading a small committee of "really stellar people" to study immigration issues and the proposed ban.
"No, I am not softening my stance at all, but I am always flexible on issues," Trump said in the interview with "Today." "I am totally flexible on very, very many issues, and I think you have to be that way. But I'm not softening my stance."
Earlier this month, Trump said that he was not willing to change his positions to win over Republican lawmakers who are concerned by his controversial rhetoric. But during an interview with "Good Morning America" on Friday, Trump seemed to soften on his hardline my-way-or-the-highway approach.
"I think there are certain things that we could talk about," Trump said. "I'm not totally inflexible on anything, but I feel when it comes to the borders, we have to have strong borders."
