Donald Trump on Tuesday offered a lengthy defense in response to the firestorm regarding his racially based attacks on the judge overseeing lawsuits against his now defunct Trump University.

The presumptive Republican nominee said critics are unfairly calling his attacks on U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel racist.

“It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage. I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent,” Trump said in the statement.

But Trump also said it is fair for him to question whether Curiel has a conflict of interest because of his Mexican roots and Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Due to what I believe are unfair and mistaken rulings in this case and the Judge’s reported associations with certain professional organizations, questions were raised regarding the Obama appointed Judge’s impartiality. It is a fair question. I hope it is not the case,” Trump said.

  1. ” The donald” should be explaining why he may be facing RICO charges and how the “play books” helped his sales staff bilt thousands of dollars from the elderly. Trump’s “university” is a fraud, he is a confidence man, and his lawsuits are a clear indication he is running a scam on the American people. God help us if Trump is ever elected to office, something he has never attempted before.

  2. Very good comparison. I can’t even watch this stuff. He won’t win Illinois. I am boring this fall to defeat a Raunerite

  3. Time to see the “Trumbo” movie I missed on the 50’s infamous Blacklist…everything old is new again in the bizarro Trumpian landscape.

  4. Trying to cover up his scams by calling a judge racist is typical of trump. Shift the attention away from his crimes. Appeal to his idiotic base, a base who cannot logically think about what he says. Or better, what he never says. He never outlines his policies or lets anyone know what he will supposedly do about very important issues. If anyone thinks that this spoiled child billionaire is out to help anyone but himself, they are living in a fantasy world.

    Sounds like rauner as well, doesn’t it. Can’t get his way so he makes children, elderly, sick, disabled, and the mentally ill of Illinois all suffer as he throws his tantrum over his turnaround upside down agenda. It seems as if these obscenely rich are all the same.
