Donald’s attacks on a federal judge, who he claimed would be biased due to his ‘Mexican heritage’ even unnerved some Republicans. The acidic GOP presidential candidate continued his attacks, but perhaps it wasn’t for racist reasons — even though that’s likely part of it — but because the hotel magnate doesn’t stand a chance in court. He’s stalling or he’s an idiot. Or both.
U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel issued a tentative ruling to deny a bid to dismiss a lawsuit by unhappy students of Trump ‘University.’ For sure, this scandal of his scammy ‘university’ is coming back to haunt Donald and in the middle of campaign season.
Curiel, who is presiding over the case, made the ruling from the bench in San Diego, California, with more motions to be heard in the coming weeks, CNN reports.
The case — one of two class-action lawsuits by former students of a real estate training program founded by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in California — is set for trial in November. A message left with Trump’s presidential campaign was not immediately returned.
This latest development is part of an ongoing saga for Trump after he came under fire in June for questioning Curiel’s impartiality based on his Mexican heritage.
After a backlash by Democrats and Republicans alike after Trump repeatedly referred to Indiana-born Curiel as a “hater” and a “Mexican,” while criticizing the judge’s rulings in the case, he doubled down.
Judge Curiel was born in Indiana and battled Mexican drug cartels as a federal prosecutor. Curiel is the son of a Salvadoran immigrant who arrived in the U.S. in the 1920s and went on to become a citizen and worked as a steelworker.
In contrast, Donald’s mother arrived in America from Scotland in the 1930s and didn’t become a U.S. citizen until 1942. So yeah, Trump cannot claim that Curiel is biased. That’s merely just projection.
The business, which has effectively been defunct for several years, is facing three lawsuits filed by and on behalf of dissatisfied enrollees, two class actions in California and a lawsuit by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
The plaintiffs allege Trump’s program took in an estimated $40 million, but was mired in fraud and deception. Trump has defended the school and said the lawsuits should have been dismissed.
The wall Donald tried to build around a Federal judge backfired. It only made him appear to look more guilty.
