When His Surrogates Lie About His Racism, Roll The Tape

Donald Trump’s campaign is rolling out a new strategy to try to tamp down the widespread criticism from the media and his fellow Republicans of Trump’s racist comments about a federal judge: flat-out lie about what he said and why. There’s one simple thing that news producers and anchors should be prepared to do in order to hold the presumptive Republican presidential nominee accountable: show video of Trump’s own words on the subject.

For weeks, Trump has falsely suggested that Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing lawsuits regarding his defunct Trump University business, could not be trusted to act fairly because his Mexican heritage presents a conflict of interest, given Trump’s proposal to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Yesterday, Trumpreleased a statement in which he argued that his comments about Curiel had been “misconstrued.” According to the statement, while Trump does not “feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial,” he feels “justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial.” It also states that “questions were raised” regarding Curiel’s “impartiality” because of the judge’s past rulings and his “reported associations with certain professional organizations.” MORE
