(MEDIAITE) — In remarks to reporters on Capitol Hill, Republican Arizona Senator Jeff Flake said that Donald Trump‘s comments about Mexican-American judge Gonzalo Curiel could spark a “convention challenge” to his presidency.
For the past week, Trump has insisted that Curiel, a Mexican-American born in Indiana, should not be allowed to oversee the Trump University trial because of his heritage. "Let’s face it: meet the old Trump, just like the new Trump," Flake said, according to the Associated Press. "We've got what we've got. That’s not somebody who can win the White House."
“Where there’s no talk of a convention challenge or anything else, this might spur it,” he concluded.
