Trump: ‘I’m Fine’ with Affirmative Action

‘Some people have loved it and some people don’t like it at all’

WALLACE:  "You said in August that you’re, quote, 'fine' with affirmative action. What about conservatives who say the time for that kind of preferential treatment has come and gone."
TRUMP: "I’m fine with it, but we have it, it’s there.  But it’s coming to a time when maybe we don’t need it.  That would be a wonderful thing.  I don’t think we need it so much anymore. You know, it has served its place, and it served its time.  Some people have loved it and some people don’t like it at all. But I think there will be a time when you don’t need it."
