Defying Staff, Trump Orders Surrogates to Double Down on Criticism of Judge | Democracy Now!

Despite the criticism from within his own party, Trump has ordered his surrogates to double down on criticism of Judge Gonzalo Curiel. On Monday, Trump held a conference call with leading supporters, including former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. According to an account of the call published by Bloomberg, Trump urged his supporters to question the judge’s credibility and impugn reporters as racists. When Brewer noted Trump’s own campaign had sent an email asking surrogates to stop talking about the lawsuit, Trump overruled his staff, saying, “Take that order and throw it the hell out.”
