Awkward interaction highlights latest racial Trump blunder

CALIFORNIA (WIVB) — Already facing criticism over calling a judge’s Mexican heritage into question in an ongoing case over Trump University, Trump may take a few more punches over his latest comments.

Whilst defending his love for all people, Trump singled out a black person in his audience, saying, “Look at my African-American over here.”

“Look at him. Are you the greatest? You know what I’m talking about?” Trump said whilst pointing at the man in the audience.

Trump’s comments came at his most recent rally in Redding, California, as he continues his campaign while primary season wraps up.

Opponents in Hillary Clinton and more have already jumped on his comments over the Trump University judge as Trump called the judge biased for having a Mexican heritage. Trump has yet to retract or apologize for those comments.

It’s not yet known what the impact of his latest comments will have.
