WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says “a lot of people didn’t quite understand” part of his immigration speech because of the enthusiastic crowd.

Trump’s speech Wednesday night fired up his base but disappointed many Hispanic supporters who were hoping he’d tone down his divisive rhetoric on immigration.

He was asked Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” what exactly he would do with the millions of people living in the country illegally who haven’t committed other crimes. He says that after he strengthens the border and gets rid of all the “bad players,” like gang members and drug dealers, “we’re going to make a decision at that time.”

He says he wants “to see, before we do anything further … how it shapes up when we have strong, impenetrable borders.”
