Donald Trump says “it’s possible” he wouldn’t be treated fairly if the federal judge hearing a lawsuit against Trump University was Muslim.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has called for banning Muslims from entering the United States.
Trump responds “it’s possible, yes,” when asked on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether he’d feel a Muslim judge would treat him unfairly because of his policies.
Trump has also proposed building a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico. He’s been arguing that U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing the case, is biased against Trump because of the border proposal and the judge’s heritage.
Curiel is an Indiana native whose parents are Mexican.
