But part of the campaigns upcoming strategy includes fine-tuning previously made platforms and statements, Manafort said,
And on one of his most controversial, the temporary ban on Muslims, Manafort hinted at a Trump softening.
Hes already started moderating on that, Manafort told the Huffington Post. He operates by starting the conversation at the outer edges and then brings it back towards the middle. Within his comfort zone, hell soften it some more. Hell still end up outside of the norm, but in line with what the American people are thinking.

I don’t for a moment believe Trump is going to really moderate on this. I’m confident that he will have some really novel ideas that he really doesn’t want to campaign on.
Mr. Trump has enjoyed not only growing support from all walks of life, but enthusiastic support as well.
If he or Manafort appears to equivocate, the support will likely still be there, but the enthusiasm will begin to deteriorate.
I don’t like to be warned in advance that someone is going to screw me over. Usually, they wait to surprise me after they get into office.
Yeh I agree with you totally. If Trump is going to go back on his promises then what are we cheering for? My take is that a lot of the time Manafort says stuff and then Trump negates it a day or two later. These Muslims have got to go.
Manafort may think he is in charge but he isn’t. Donald is shrewd. But he knows what must be done. I believe he has the cojones to do it.
Trumps list of possible SCOTUS nominees is solid. Hillary won’t do that
Oh look, another FR thread of people idiotically thinking that Trump can rule by decree and impose any policy suggestion he likes. Isn’t that exactly what we didn’t want?
"Trumps list of possible SCOTUS nominees is solid. "
Unless he softens and fine-tunes his list, and we end up with Judge Faith-Jenkins
Rick Wiley was just canned yesterday.
Trump cannot absorb news of any more departures from his team so soon! Manafort imbued me with supreme confidence in Trump’s campaign when he came aboard. He has a proven track record and I feel he knows what he is doing. Just his steely demeanor and reassuring smile speaks volumes!!
Why not just say we’ll only ban the bad ones?
When asked how we’ll determine that, say that we can’t publicize that info so they don’t figure a way to circumvent it.
Manafort, who reminds me of a sleazy version of 70s Hollywood producer, Robert Evans, needs to shut up. We need Corey, not this sleaze.
This ManniRove has got to go. Campaign managers get paid whether they win or lose so they have no reason to care what the voters think.
Pray America wakes
Oh hell no. I want someone to take over and rule by decree. Just the RIGHT guy. Hell, I'd vote for a half lizard-half-human hybrid who said he'd build a wall and throw out the muslims/illegals and stop buying oil from the "crazy" countries, funneling trillions of dollars to them.
Sounds like Trump may be a real Repculican after all. Promise to do conservative things until the sheep elect you, and then you can fugeddaboudid.
how are you being screwed over? He said he wanted a temporary ban until we figure out what’s going on.
Temporary ban and figure out what’s going on have a lot of leeway.
I’ve no doubt he’s going to restrict Muslim immigration while figuring out what’s going on. He’ll even go for small moral victories in some form by identifying and deporting some questionable Muslims.
“GOP Congress, Pentagon Accelerate Recruitment of Illegals As Military Shrinks”
Wasn't his original statement a complete ban on Muslims entering for any reason and not just immigrants? And what does "figure out what's going on" mean anyway?
Forget it. These guys think like blockheaded Communists who demand to have a 5-year plan laid out in advance with every detail implemented exactly as decreed, reality be damned.
They refuse to think in terms of goals with mutable policies designed to reached said goalsi.e., how normal, non-braindead people actually operate in the real world.
