Remember hen we were all shocked in 2016 when he attacked the judge in his Trump University case because he was Mexican? TAPPER: What does this have to do with his heritage? TRUMP: I’ll tell you what it has to do. I’ve had ruling after ruling after ruling that’s been bad rulings, OK? I’ve been treated very unfairly. Before him, we had another judge.

Now, this judge is of Mexican heritage. I’m building a wall, OK? I’m building a wall. I am going to do very well with the Hispanics, the Mexicans – TAPPER: So, no Mexican judge could ever be involved in a case that involves you? TRUMP: Well, he’s a member of a society, where – you know, very pro-Mexico, and that’s fine.
