Donald Trump opened his mouth and made things a hundred times worse by issuing a statement claiming that he is not racist because he has hired Mexicans and Hispanics.
In a statement, Trump said:
It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage. I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent. The American justice system relies on fair and impartial judges. All judges should be held to that standard. I do not feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, but, based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial.
Over the past few weeks, I have watched as the media has reported one inaccuracy after another concerning the ongoing litigation involving Trump University. There are several important facts the public should know and that the media has failed to report.
The statement rambles on about Trump University and the unfairness of the judge before the candidate announced that he will no longer be commenting on his racism.
Donald Trump’s answer to the criticism that his comments were racists was to respond with more racism.
If Trump thinks that one statement is going to make his problems go away, he is in for a surprise. Trump wants everybody to know that when he said, “We’re in front of a very hostile judge. The judge was appointed by Barack Obama, federal judge. Frankly, he should recuse himself because he’s given us ruling after ruling after ruling, negative, negative, negative. What happens is the judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that’s fine,” he didn’t mean anything racial.
Things have gone from bad to worse for Trump, and his claim that he will not talk about this matter again just guaranteed that he will be asked about in every interview from now until Election.
Donald Trump just can’t stop being racist.
