NORAH O'DONNELL (CO-HOST): And Donald Trump saying he is going to finally give this major speech [on immigration] on Wednesday. 


O'DONNELL: Supposedly clarifying this, but isn't this muddling of the issue just bringing more attention what is a divisive issue for someone who's trying to gain Hispanic voters? 

DAN SENOR: Absolutely. Look, I don't think they believe they're actually going to reach significant numbers of Latino voters. I think they're trying to reach white educated suburban middle class, upper middle class in the suburbs and exurbs where they're suffering and Republicans can't win without those voters. So they're trying to calm those voters down to say, “Look, we're not as crazy and xenophobic as the media or our opponents say we are.” But it also -- just this uncertainty about his position. You guys just showed earlier on the show clips of his surrogates on TV all over the weekend. No two of them said the same thing about his immigration plan. It just speaks to the strains of not having a real presidential campaign. When you have a real presidential campaign, you have surrogates, you roll out policy, you coordinate. There's none of that going on and it's chaos.
