Donald Trump and Jake Tapper are in a Mexican standoff.
— Jim Antle (@jimantle) June 3, 2016
In a just aired interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Donald Trump doubled-down on his criticism of the federal judge in San Diego presiding over the Trump University fraud case, insisting numerous times that Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel’s “Mexican heritage” makes him biased against the GOP nominee:
Trump, not budging on Curiel criticism, tells Tapper: "He's Mexican. I'm building a wall."

Jake Tapper just gave Trump a dozen chances to sound an iota less racist about the "Mexican" judge but he kept digging deeper.
