Key Republicans Run From 'Demagogue' Trump Over Immigration

Key Republicans distanced themselves on Sunday from presidential candidate Donald Trump's denunciation of illegal immigrants from Mexico as rapists and criminals, saying he has become "a wrecking ball" for the party's ability to win Hispanic voters.
Announcing his candidacy last month, Trump accused Mexico of sending rapists and other criminals into the United States. He later added that illegal border-crossers from Mexico were carrying "tremendous infectious disease".
Numerous companies have cut ties with the billionaire real estate developer over his comments.
Presidential candidate and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN's "State of the Union" program, "At the end of the day, for us to win a national election, we have to do better with Hispanics."
"And for us to have the moral authority as a party to govern a great nation, we have to reject this demagoguery. If we don't, we will lose, and we will deserve to lose."
