NEW YORK  — Donald Trump met with his newly-minted National Hispanic Advisory Council for Trump in New York, sitting down with elected officials, business leaders and faith leaders, along with his new campaign team.

The group is looking to help Trump focus his message, as well as provide assistance with the campaign’s Hispanic outreach.

But winning over Hispanic voters will not be easy for the Republican nominee. He launched his campaign with a speech that accused Mexico of illegally sending rapist and criminals across the border, and has since vowed to deport all of the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally.

That message has not resonated well with many minority voters.

Helen Aguirre Ferré, director of Hispanic communications for the RNC, called the meeting a “game-changing” opportunity.
