U.S. Senator Ron Johnson wants Donald Trump to retract his criticism of a federal judge.
The Republican presidential candidate has said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was born in Indiana to Mexican parents, cannot be impartial in a lawsuit against Trump University. The presumptive nominee has been under fire from Democrats over the comments, who argue Republicans who disagree with Trump should condemn his racist comments and withdraw support from his candidacy.
A spokesman for Johnson said Monday that the Wisconsin Republican “disagrees, just as he has in the past.” Spokesman Brian Reisinger said Johnson will hold both candidates accountable when they’re wrong.
Johnson’s opponent, Democrat Russ Feingold, called Trump’s language “disqualifying for him to be president.”
