DENVER -- Donald Trump Jr. made a stop in Denver on Wednesday. Before embarking on a series of fundraisers, he answered a series of questions about the campaign.

Trump Jr. was asked about the report the media "blacklist" has ended -- allowing reporters from Politico and the Washington Post to now obtain credentials.

"There is one thing to be critical there is another thing to cover lies that are then retracted once the headline is published," Trump Jr., said defending the initial policy.

"But why lift the ban now?" he was asked.

"I don't know -- I don't know what the policy is," Trump Jr. said.

Trump Jr. was about Hispanic voters in Colorado and the confusion over what his father's policy is. In speeches, Trump has said undocumented workers must leave the country immediately, but in some interviews he seemed to suggest some flexibility.

"The policy is you can't start a negotiation with someone perpetrating a crime," Trump Jr. said.

"They all have to go?" he was asked.

"Everyone does have to go," Trump Jr. clarified.

He was then asked about Trump's national security speech on Wednesday in which he called for the destruction of ISIS within 30 days of his inauguration.

"I think he is prepared to do what it takes to win within reason -- he wants to utilize what we have," Trump Jr. said when asked if his father is prepared to send troops into Syria.

Trump Jr. was also asked about the report his father donated to the attorney general of Florida while she was considering launching an investigation into Trump.

"He's had a great relationship with Pam Bondi for years -- I think he has donated to politicians throughout his career as business that's what you do," Trump Jr. said.

When asked about winning Colorado, Trump Jr. said, "Common sense. I think we are speaking with common sense."

Trump Jr. was also asked a series of rapid-fire questions.
