Kasich: Trump Should Apologize To Judge For Racial Attacks

AP

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R), the last Republican presidential candidates to drop his White House bid, on Monday condemned Trump’s racial attacks against a judge in one of the Trump University cases.

In a couple of tweets, Kasich called Trump’s insults against U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel and his accusations of bias based on the judge’s Mexican heritage “flat out wrong.” He also called for Trump to apologize to Curiel:

Kasich’s tweets also referenced Trump’s suggestion that judges who are Muslim may also have a bias against him.

The Ohio governer is the latest in an array of Republican lawmakers and conservative leaders who’ve pushed back on Trump for his attacks on Curiel. Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called Trump’s comments “inappropriate” and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he “completely disagrees with the thinking” behind Trump’s comments.
