Trump backs down under Republican fire in race row

Donald Trump has faltered badly since he won the Republican presidential nomination, with violence-marred rallies, run-ins with the press and a widely condemned racial attack on a federal judgeDonald Trump on Tuesday climbed down under fire from Republican grandees in an explosive race row, insisting that days of belligerent attacks on a Mexican-American judge had been misconstrued. The tycoon, who trails likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in national polls ahead of a November general election, has repeatedly claimed that Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is handling a lawsuit against the now-defunct Trump University, is biased against him because his parents were born in Mexico. “It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage,” the presumptive Republican nominee for president said in a carefully worded but lengthy statement.
