(Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump backed away farther from his hardline stance on deporting millions of illegal immigrants, saying in remarks broadcast on Wednesday he would be willing to work with those who have followed U.S. laws while living in the country. Trump's comments came in the second part of an interview conducted on Tuesday with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
