ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed Trump's recent remarks over a Hispanic judge, Mexican-American U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing fraud lawsuits against Trump University, the New York businessman's defunct real estate school. "He has been attacking a distinguished federal judge. A federal judge who was born in Indiana. He is as American as I am and he's as American as Donald Trump is," Clinton told supporters in Lynwood, California. Trump has suggested that Curiel's heritage is influencing his opinion about the case because of Trump's campaign rhetoric about illegal immigration. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for the Nov. 8 presidential election, has pledged to seal the U.S.-Mexico border with a wall, and has said Mexico is sending rapists and drug dealers to the United States.
