The presumptive GOP nominee said U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, a federal district judge in the Southern District of California, has made "rulings that people can't even believe."

It has not been a good week for Donald Trump. This is the week where the fraudulent techniques used in his fraudulent Trump University were exposed. This is the week where Hillary Clinton excoriated Donald Trump as a clear and present danger to the world.
