SALT LAKE CITY -- Donald Trump is not finding support for his stand against a federal judge, even in his own party.

Add Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz to the growing chorus of critics.

Trump says Federal District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel should be disqualified from a case involving Trump defunct “Trump University” because Curiel’s Mexican heritage represents an “inherent bias.”

“I think people are disturbed that you would want to try to dismiss a judge based on his ethnicity,” Chaffetz told Fox News on Monday.

Still, Chaffetz went on to say he prefers Trump to likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
