Details matter, not just style and nuance

Donald Trump laid down the gauntlet on immigration with outrageous ideas and insulting policies. He attracted followers based on those policy ideas such as claims that Mexicans are criminals and that he intended to wall them out.

He alienated Latinos and African Americans too over the course of his campaign, and now he wants to change their minds. He is a witness who has lied before the court of public opinion. He can't change what he has said without being a liar.

He may have conned some people, but the majority of Americans are too smart and too compassionate for Donald Trump.
