Donald Trump's campaign has changed its tune and softened its tone on illegal immigration.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway sought to portray the GOP nominee as having a "complex solution" for the problem of dealing with illegal immigrants residing in the United States.

"Even Sen. Jeff Sessions, who was one of the first people to endorse Donald Trump, and is known for the immigration issue, he doesn't deport 11 million people in his plan," Conway said when asked by CNBC whether Trump was softening his stance on illegal immigration. "In other words, what Donald Trump says is we need a fair and effective way to deal with the 11 million who are here, who live among us. At the same time, protecting American jobs and American workers and also securing our borders."

She continued, "It's not just about building a wall. It's not just about border security. It's not just about American jobs. But it's also in dealing, we need to be fair but we need to be fair to all those concerned."

During the GOP primary, Trump advocated for mass deportations of illegal immigrants. During a CNN-sponsored debate, he said, "We have at least 11 million people in this country that came in illegally — they will go out."

After becoming the GOP nominee, Trump moderated his message. On Monday, Trump said the legal immigration process is "not fair" for immigrants and added, "We're working with a lot of people in the Hispanic community to try and come up with an answer."

Regardless of whether the Trump campaign's shift on immigration helps the GOP nominee win more Hispanic voters in November, the differing tone appears to be a recognition of their status in the presidential race. Conway acknowledged on Monday that the Trump campaign has performed horribly for several weeks.

"I think we'll look back at these last two weeks and people will say those were [a] terrible two weeks of the Trump campaign. That's true," Conway said. "We had a rough two weeks. It helps us to be down a little, lights the fire under us."

Seventy-seven days remain until Election Day.
