Donald Trump made headlines this weekend after expressing doubt that a U.S. Muslim judge could be unbiased in some court decisions. One of his newest supporters, longtime Republican donor Foster Friess, echoed Trump's skepticism.
"They have a different kind of worldview, and I believe, if I understand Islam correctly, they would prefer to have the Quran be the dominant guiding force for our country versus the Constitution," Friess, founder of Friess Associates, told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Monday. "So that does make it difficult."
Trump appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday following his criticism of Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel, a U.S. judge who Trump said has a "conflict of interest" in a California case against Trump University. Because of the judge's heritage and the Republican candidate's proposed border wall with Mexico, Trump said, he might not deliver an unbiased decision.
When asked if a Muslim judge might carry a similar bias because of Trump's call for a ban on Muslim immigrants, Trump responded with, "It's possible, yes."
