Trump cancels 3 'immigration week' events in Colorado, Nevada and Oregon


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has canceled three events which his campaign manager had originally billed as part of "immigration week." 

Trump was scheduled to deliver a speech on immigration in Denver on Thursday, but according to The Denver Post, that event was postponed. He, is however, attending a private event in Aspen, Colorado. 

Trump's campaign said the event was canceled because his speech is "still being modified." 

According to ABC affiliate KTNV, Trump's rally scheduled for Friday in Las Vegas was also canceled. 

The television station said Trump's campaign did not give a reason for canceling. He is, however, expected to participate in a roundtable discussion that could potentially focus on immigration. 

Colorado and Nevada are battleground states where Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads, according to recent polls. 

Lastly, Trump canceled a rally and fundraiser in Portland, Oregon, which was scheduled for Aug. 31. 

Trump's Oregon campaign director cited the real estate mogul's trip to Louisiana as the reason for the cancellation. 

It is still unclear whether Trump will continue supporting the deportation of undocumented immigrants in the United States. 

Monday on Fox News, Trump insisted he was not "flip-flopping" on his immigration policy. 

"We want to come up with a fair but firm process. Fair but firm," he said. 

He didn't, however, provide details on what "fair but firm" would look like if he is elected in November.
