GOP frontrunner Donald Trump posed with a bald eagle at his New York City office for a spread in this week’s issue of Time magazine.

The 27-year-old eagle, named uncle Sam, was flown in from Texas and brought to the 25th floor of the Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan.

In an interview with the publication, Trump sounded off on undocumented immigrants, Hillary Clinton’s email controversy, and taxes.

When pressed on how feasible it would be to remove undocumented immigrants from the U.S., he did not detail specifics but said, "it'll all work out."

“It’s called management,” Trump said. “Politicians can’t manage; all they can do is talk. It’s called management. And we’ll do an expedited system. Because I agree with you, there are some very, very good people here who they are here illegally. But they are illegal.”

He also discussed the controversy around Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department.

“She’s going through something that for me, for me is Watergate,” Trump said. “Her only hope is that because the prosecutors are Democrats she doesn’t get prosecuted. That’s the only hope she’s got.”

Trump also said that as president, he may decide to change laws around taxes. 

“Well I’m thinking about it but I have a problem because I may want to switch taxes around,” Trump said. “I want to save the middle class.”

Trump’s Time magazine cover issue hits newsstands Thursday.
