Trump Keeps Going After ‘Biased’ Judge In Trump University Case

After a federal judge ordered documents in a lawsuit over Trump University to be unsealed, Donald Trump renewed his attacks on the judge in the case on Monday.

Trump went after U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel on Friday, calling him a “hater” and noting that Curiel is “we believe, Mexican.”

Curiel that same day ordered documents in the Trump University case to be unsealed in response to a request from the Washington Post. In his order declaring that Trump University “playbooks” be released this week, Curiel noted Trump’s past criticisms of the court in the case.

“Defendant became the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential race, and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue,” Curiel wrote in the order, according to Politico.

Trump then used the Memorial Day holiday to again attack Curiel.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
