Trump: "It's possible" a Muslim judge would be unfair
by Reena Flores
Donald Trump is standing by comments he made against U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge presiding over a Trump University lawsuit, telling CBS' "Face the Nation" that Curiel's Mexican heritage prevents him from acting fairly on the bench.
"He is a member of a club or society, very strongly pro-Mexican, which is all fine," Trump told "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson in an interview that will air Sunday. "But I say he's got bias. I want to build a wall. I'm going to build a wall. I'm doing very well with the Latinos, with the Hispanics, with the Mexicans, I'm doing very well with them in my opinion."
Later, when asked if he believed a Muslim judge would treat him unfairly because of another controversial proposal to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the U.S., Trump replied: "It's possible, yes. Yeah. That would be possible, absolutely."
