Holtz-Eakin: Trump’s Comments About Judge Curiel ‘Wrong,’ ‘Unacceptable’ with ‘No Upside’

‘Certainly Donald Trump’s candidacy will be damaged’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 

HOLTZ-EAKIN: "Yes. I mean, the comments are wrong. They are unacceptable, and there is no upside to them. The only question is who will be damaged and how badly? Certainly Donald Trump’s candidacy will be damaged. He has hurt his standing among Hispanics. The number one issue with Hispanics is jobs and the economy. If he were to turn and start to talk about that, there is a good chance they will have tuned him out already and that’s going to hurt him, and I think the real issue then is what happens to things in brand in 2020. Republicans have known they have to appeal to Hispanics to win national elections."
