Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine slammed Donald Trump's visit to Mexico and subsequent immigration policy speech, and said the GOP nominee wants to create a "deportation nation."
"[K]ind of talking out of both sides of his mouth in a way that I think the diplomacy side of it was kind of embarrassing, and then the speech last night was frightening and divisive," the Virginia senator said in a Thursday morning interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
Kaine slammed Trump for traveling all the way to Mexico to talk with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and then not talking about "the central piece of his whole campaign."
"The central piece of his whole campaign is immigration, deportation nation, we're going to build a wall, we're going to make Mexico pay for it," Kaine said. "But when he gets in the room with the president of Mexico, what, he forgets this? He's been saying it and the Mexican president knows he's been saying it. But he doesn't bring it up? Did he choke? Was he afraid?"
