Is Trump's tough plan on immigration cracking?

Police hurled tear gas and flash-bang grenades in response to rowdy protests in Portland, Oregon, as people around the country once again took to the streets denouncing Donald Trump's presidential election.

Host Jake Tapper started the conversation by asking the Speaker what he'd like to tell people who are terrified of a Trump presidency. "I think people should just really put their minds at ease". "If we go for it-if we go big and go bold-we can make America so great that it offers our children even more than it offers us".

In his first postelection interview, Trump says he'll focus on deporting criminal immigrants and not everyone living in the United States illegally.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has reported hundreds of hate crimes and acts of harassment and intimidation since Election Day, with the most frequently reported incidents targeting African-Americans, immigrants and Muslims.

"I'm not going to re-litigate the past, I'm looking for the future", said Ryan. Breitbart has characterized the Wisconsin Republican as a spineless leader who betrayed conservative principles when he assumed his leadership position. People who espouse those views, they're not Republicans and we don't want them in our party even if they're thinking about it.

"That's not what we're focused on". We're focused on securing the border. He added that the main priority when it came to immigration was securing the border.

In other words, the rhetoric of Ryan and Trump is already fundamentally at-odds on one of the seismic, most consequential policy proposals of Trump's political career.

On CBS News' "Face the Nation", former Republican House Speaker New Gingrich said it will be critical for Trump to work with Democrats during his first year in office.

"Well, I think there's a better way of dealing with that particular issue", Ryan said, citing his own tax reform plan.

But Ryan said he won't support Trump's plan to impose tariffs within his first 100 days to discourage companies from outsourcing jobs overseas.
