Trump admitted to host Sean Hannity he does not care about the judge’s nationality, a significant walkback from comments made over the past few days that U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel could not oversee his case because of his Mexican ethnicity, even though he was born in the U.S.
“It’s sad,” Trump said, referring to how some have “misconstrued” his views on the judge. “I don’t care where the judge comes from. I just want to get a fair shake. We’ve had unfair opinions coming down and you wonder, what is going on?”
Don’t worry, GOP. I’m sure the new presidential Trump will be here any day now.
