“He’s already started moderating on that,” Paul Manafort told the Huffington Post in an interview published Wednesday. “He operates by starting the conversation at the outer edges and then brings it back towards the middle. Within his comfort zone, he’ll soften it some more.”

“He’ll still end up outside of the norm, but in line with what the American people are thinking," Manafort added.

Trump recently said that the proposal is "just a suggestion."

On the businessman's other highly controversial plan, to build a wall along the Mexican border, Manafort said the candidate will be less compromising. 

“He is going to build a wall. That is a core thing with him,” Manafort said. “He will push it strongly, and he will push for the immigration changes just as strongly.”
