Throughout the campaign, he had firmly and repeatedly guaranteed that Mexico, not USA taxpayers, would pay for the wall.
"I do not feel that one's heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, but, based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial", he added.
