Donald Trump's Racist Vendetta Against Judge Gonzalo Curiel

By Robert Paul Reyes

When Donald Trump announced he was running for president, he set a racist tone for his campaign, branding Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. As an American of Mexican heritage, I didn`t need to hear anything else to confirm Trump`s racist nature.


Throughout his campaign Trump has uttered blatantly racist and misogynist comments, only somebody who is racist himself would try to justify or rationalize Trump`s execrable statements.

Trump`s hatred towards Latinos reached a boiling point recently with his vendetta against .S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over fraud lawsuits against Trump University.

Incredulously Trump argues that the Indiana-born judge is biased against him because "he`s a Mexican." Trump is making the unconstitutional and ridiculous assertion that that the judge has a conflict of interest because of his ethnicity.

In his stump speeches, Trump has repeatedly called for the judge to recuse himself, but the billionaire`s lawyers haven`t made any such foolish request.

If race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation were grounds for disqualifying a judge, the criminal justice system would come to a screeching halt.

In viciously attacking Judge Curiel Trump is revealing that not only is he a racist, but a bully, because legal ethics prohibit the judge from publicly defending himself.

You don`t have to be a rocket scientist to discern that Donald Trump is a racist, and you don`t have to be a legal scholar to realize that Trump University is a scam.

Is there any hope for our democracy? What a choice: A corrupt witch or a blatant racist! I think I`m going to move to Russia.
