Trump’s Racist Remarks Alarm Even GOP Leaders

Donald Trump’s racist comments about U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel have drawn wide condemnation even from Republicans who disagree with the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee’s threat to an independent judiciary. Trump, undeterred, doubled down this morning on his racist assertions and said Newt Gingrich’s criticism of him was “inappropriate.”

“Donald Trump’s racist rants are so divisive that even Republican leaders are beginning to stand up and take notice. These divisive and irresponsible comments are just the latest reasons why Donald Trump does not have the temperament to occupy the Oval Office.” – DNC National Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach

Newt Gingrich: “I don’t know what Trump’s reasoning was, and I don’t care … His description of the judge in terms of his parentage is completely unacceptable.”

Jason Chaffetz: “Look, I think people are disturbed that you would want to try to dismiss a judge based on his ethnicity.”

John Kasich: “Attacking judges based on their race &/or religion is another tactic that divides our country. More importantly, it is flat out wrong … @realDonaldTrump should apologize to Judge Curiel & try to unite this country. #TwoPaths”

Paul Ryan: “I completely disagree with the thinking behind that.”

Mitch McConnell: “I couldn’t disagree more with what he had to say.”
