Donald Trump has taken a step forward by saying he did not intend anything racist in his comments about a Hispanic judge presiding over his Trump University case, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker said Tuesday.

"Obviously comments about people's ability to do something based on ethnicity, they have no place in U.S. politics," Corker said on Fox News Channel's "Special Report."

"I think he's recognized that was a mistake," Corker said. "I haven't had conversations with him about it. But it looks like he's attempting to move beyond this, not to talk about it more in the future."

Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, had come under fire from members of his own party, including Corker, after attacking federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel as biased against him in the case because he is of Mexican heritage. Trump had explained that Curiel might rule against him because of Trump's vow to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it and to deport illegal immigrants if he is elected.
