Trump doubles down on Hispanic judge amid furor (DOINA CHIACU, 6/06/16, Reuters)

On Monday, Senator Jeff Flake expressed alarm.

"If this doesn't change we're in for big trouble," the Arizona Republican said on MSNBC. "I hope to be able to support the nominee. I certainly can't now," said Flake, whose state has a large percentage of Hispanics.

A former rival for the Republican presidential nomination, Ohio Governor John Kasich, called on Trump to apologize to Curiel, who was born in Indiana to Mexican immigrant parents.

"Attacking judges based on their race (and/or) religion is another tactic that divides our country," Kasich wrote on Twitter. "More importantly, it is flat out wrong."

BuzzFeed pulls out of $1.3M advertising deal with RNC over Donald Trump (HADAS GOLD, MIKE ALLEN and ALEX SPENCE, 06/06/16, Politico)

BuzzFeed has pulled out of an advertising agreement with the Republican National Committee over objections to Donald Trump's rhetoric.

The buy was for $1.3 million, a source close to BuzzFeed told POLITICO. The source said that the main consideration was the site's employees - that BuzzFeed could not countenance "having employees make ads, or working at the company and having our site promoting things, that limit our freedom and make it harder for them to live their lives."
