Ramos: Trump's Judge Comments Make Him Unqualified To Be President

Ohio Democrats are joining in on the attack on Donald Trump as the presidential candidate questions if a federal judge’s heritage makes him biased. 

Donald Trump says the judge presiding over his Trump University lawsuit is being unfair because of his Mexican heritage.

Ohio Democrats are firing back at Trump saying those comments are racist and adding that the judge is an American born citizen.

Representative Dan Ramos, a Democrat from Lorain, says as a Hispanic-American he takes offense to what Trump is implying for him and his family.

“But if Mr. Trump can’t see this Indiana-born judge as an American judge, how can he see any of us who happen to have a shared heritage as American,” said Ramos.

Gov. John Kasich says through Twitter that Trump’s attacks are wrong and that he should apologize.
