Voters are right. It is another nontroversy ginned up by Hillary Clinton's Super PAC -- the mainstream media.
The same people with faux outrage over Trump referencing the judge's Mexican heritage praised to no end the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor as the first Hispanic justice. She is an outright racist and sexist who said on October 26, 2001: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."
Trump said nothing of the sort.
Sotomayor said women are better than men.
Sotomayor said Latina are better than whites.
That should be unacceptable, because she clearly does not see people as individuals but she gets away with her sexism and racism because we live in a country that with major double standards in matters of sex and race.
Trump merely said that one judge is biased against him for his statements. Not all people of Mexican ancestry are biased, just one.
And Trump did not even imply that the judge is biased against all white people, just him.
The people behind Trump do not care, and I believe that they already are in the majority of the people who will vote this year. His supporters see these media-generated controversies for what they are: nonsense because his supporters see through the double standard.
But Mitch McConnell and the other girly men (and girly women) in the Republican Party of Washington read the National Review and listen to George Will and quiver.
The Real Republican Party gave McConnell and Paul Ryan majorities in Congress, but they act like minority leaders -- afraid of upsetting the liberals in Congress and the media.
But now with Trump as the nominee, McConnell and Ryan have to also appease him. The meek shall inherit the Earth but man are there a lot of inheritance taxes for Washington Republicans to pay.
Trump just issued a statement that supports his criticisms:
DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT REGARDING TRUMP UNIVERSITY
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.
Throughout the litigation my attorneys have continually demonstrated that students who participated in Trump University were provided a substantive, valuable education based upon a curriculum developed by professors from Northwestern University, Columbia Business School, Stanford University and other respected institutions. And, the response from students was overwhelming. Over a five year period, more than 10,000 paying students filled out surveys giving the courses high marks and expressing their overwhelming satisfaction with Trump University’s programs. For example:
- Former student Tarla Makaeff, the original plaintiff in the litigation, not only completed multiple surveys rating Trump University’s three-day seminar “excellent” in every category, but also praised Trump University’s mentorship program in a glowing 5 plus minute video testimonial. When asked “how could Trump University help to meet [her] goals”, she simply stated “[c]ontinue to offer great classes.” Once the plaintiffs’ lawyers realized how disastrous a witness she was, they asked to have her removed from the case. Over my lawyers’ objections, the judge granted the plaintiffs’ motion, but allowed the case to continue.
- Art Cohen, a lead plaintiffs in the litigation, completed a survey in which he not only rated Trump University’s three-day seminar “excellent” in virtually every category, but went so far as to indicate that he would “attend another Trump University seminar” and even “recommend Trump University seminars to a friend.” When asked how Trump University could improve the seminar, Mr. Cohen’s only suggestion was to “[h]ave lunch sandwiches brought in” and make the lunch break 45 minutes.
- Former student Bob Giullo, who has been critical of Trump University in numerous interviews and negative advertisements from my political opponents, also expressed his satisfaction, rating Trump University’s programs “excellent” in every category. When asked how Trump University could improve its programs, Mr. Giullo simply asked that students be provided “more comfortable chairs.”
Indeed, these are just a few of literally thousands of positive surveys, all of which can be viewed online at
For those students who decided that Trump University’s programs were not for them, the company had a generous refund policy, offering a full refund to any student who asked for their money back within 3 days of signing up for a program or by the end of the first day of any multi-day program, whichever came later.
Normally, legal issues in a civil case would be heard in a neutral environment. However, given my unique circumstances as nominee of the Republican Party and the core issues of my campaign that focus on illegal immigration, jobs and unfair trade, I have concerns as to my ability to receive a fair trial.
I am fighting hard to bring jobs back to the United States. Many companies – like Ford, General Motors, Nabisco, Carrier – are moving production to Mexico. Drugs and illegal immigrants are also pouring across our border. This is bad for all Americans, regardless of their heritage.
Due to what I believe are unfair and mistaken rulings in this case and the Judge’s reported associations with certain professional organizations, questions were raised regarding the Obama appointed Judge’s impartiality. It is a fair question. I hope it is not the case.
While this lawsuit should have been dismissed, it is now scheduled for trial in November. I do not intend to comment on this matter any further. With all of the thousands of people who have given the courses such high marks and accolades, we will win this case!This is another media nontroversy aimed at getting back at a man they said would not win the nomination. They hate being shown up.
--Donald J. Trump
