a wall, okay? and it's a wall between mexico, not another country, and -- >> but he's not -- he's not from mexico. he's from indiana. >> in my opinion, he is -- his mexican -- mexican heritage. and he's very proud of it. >> reporter: it didn't stop there. >> if it were a muslim judge, would you also feel like they wouldn't be able to treat you fairly because of that policy of yours? >> it's possible, yes. yeah, that would be possible. absolutely. >> reporter: today, the most powerful republican in washington calling trump's comments about judge gonzalo curiel racist. >> claiming a person can't do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment. i think that should be absolutely disavowed. it's absolutely unacceptable. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan says he still supports the billionaire. but tonight, senator mark kirk of illinois locked in a tough re-election fight, becomes the first republican to withdraw his endorsement of trump. >> too racist and bigoted for the party of lincoln for me. >> reporter: and now, one republican after another urging trump to shape up. >> it's time to quit attacking various people you've competed with or various minority groups in the country and get on message.

"it is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of mexican heritage." and while trump still insists he's not getting a fair trial, hehe now says, "i do not feel tt one's heritage makes them incapable of being impartial." defending trump tonight, the one time rival who's been behind him for months, new jersey governor chris christie. >> i know donald trump. i've known him for 14 years. and donald trump is not a racist.
5:37 pm
