From the August 25 edition of CNN’s New Day:

BAKARI SELLERS: Well it's a flip-flop, plain and simple. I think that Republican voters, they bought a bill of goods, hook, line, and sinker, and they were bamboozled. The fact is that Donald Trump started with Dwight Eisenhower's 1954 Operation Wetback, which was very brutal. That's what he patterned his immigration policy after. Going into these homes, rounding them up, sending them back. And now he's getting to the point that many of us were making, even you, Chris, push back. We realized it was politically unfeasible, politically stupid. It was too expenive and it was just inhumane. And now he's getting to a point where John Kasich, Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio are all sitting at home saying, that's what I've been saying, that is what I’ve been saying. Now he's there. It's amazing to me that we want to give credit to Donald Trump for somehow finding humanity. I refuse to simply give him credit and say overnight he just quote-unquote  “found humanity.”
