Donald Trump's son told CNBC on Wednesday that his father is not flip-flopping on immigration, but he wants "America to come first."
"We've got a lot of problems in this country and we need to take care of our own first," Eric Trump, executive vice president of development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization, said on "Squawk Box."
The GOP presidential nominee has appeared to have eased his call for deporting all undocumented immigrants. In a "Hannity" town hall with Fox News Sean Hannity, Trump said Tuesday night he's open to "softening" laws dealing with undocumented immigrants. New Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway also made comments in this direction earlier this week on "Squawk Box."
"I thinks it develops," Eric Trump said of his father's deportation position. "Honestly, I don't think it's flip-flopping at all. I think his message has always been very, very clear since the beginning of the campaign; it's America first."
"I think he's going to come out and speak very, very specifically about. He has a couple of immigration speeches coming up," the younger Trump said. "[But] he will build a wall. Believe me. He will build a wall."
On the latest revelations about the Clinton Foundation, Eric Trump told CNBC they prove "pay to play" and "corruption at the highest level."
An Associated Press report indicated more than half of the private interests who met with Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state were donors to the Clinton Foundation.
In a statement, Clinton's campaign objected to the AP conclusions and methodology.
Under pressure to release his tax returns, Donald Trump has said he won't make them public until the completion of an audit of his returns since 2009.
Eric Trump said that just makes good business sense. "There is no tax attorney in the world who will tell you to release your tax returns while you're under a standard, routine audit. It would never happen. ... It would be foolish to do."
"You don't learn that much from a tax return," the younger Trump added.
"You learn a lot more when you look at somebody's assets," he continued. "You know how many hotels we have around the world. You know how many golf courses we have around the world. You know every single building we have."
In October 2015, Trump tweeted a photo, showing him signing his tax return.
"His tax return, did you see the Twitter picture, it's 5-feet tall," Eric Trump said. "You would have a bunch of people who know nothing about taxes trying to look through and try to come up with assumptions they know nothing about."
