Donald Trump recently found himself at the center of yet another media controversy this week when he claimed that Trump University judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage made him incapable of providing a fair trial.
The reaction was overwhelmingly negative, as even top Republicans and Trump supporters denounced Trump’s claim. Most took issue with the fact that Trump called the Indiana-born judge “Mexican” rather than American, considering he was a natural born U.S. citizen.
