Amid a firestorm of criticism over remarks he made on the impartiality of a federal judge, Donald Trump had some advice for his Republican critics.
The presumptive GOP nominee, who has been under attack for comments he made about the Mexican judge presiding over class action lawsuits against him, said Republicans who are angry need to “get over it.”
“In all fairness, they’re some of the people that I went through war with, and I won, and there’s a lot of anxiety there, there’s a lot of anger, I guess,” Trump said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday. “They just can’t come back, they can’t get over it. So they have to get over it, ideally.
“As to whether or not they endorse me, it’s okay if they don’t. But they have to get over it. They shouldn’t be so angry for so long.”
Trump has come under fire for alleging that U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel might have a conflict of interest in the case because of his Mexican heritage, given Trump’s stance on immigration policies with Mexico. Many Republicans, including former Trump opponents, have blasted the billionaire for his remarks.
Trump attempted to quell the backlash in a statement released Tuesday, saying his comments had been “misconstrued.”
“Over the past few weeks, I have watched as the media has reported one inaccuracy after another concerning the ongoing litigation involving Trump University,” he said in the statement, adding that the “media has failed to report” several facts.
“It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage,” he said.”I do not feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial.”
