Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) responded to 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s frustration with illegal immigration on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC.
Haley said she understands Trump’s frustration, but she also warned Trump to pump the brakes on his tone because she wants people to communicate in a tone with “respect and dignity.”
“I understand his frustration. The frustration that he has about illegal immigration a lot of people have. The difference is we need to be very conscious of our tone, we need to be very conscious of how we communicate. There are a lot of legal immigrants that have made this country the place it is today. We need to make sure that we’re always communicating in a way that’s got respect and dignity.”
