Malzberg asked Reagan about Trump's criticisms of a Hispanic judge who is presiding over a lawsuit involving Trump University.
"My take is he took Hillary off the front pages, which is the dumbest thing you can do in a presidential election or any election," Reagan said. "I know Donald Trump loves to be on the front pages, but I think this time he really stubbed his toe. And I think he offended a whole lot of people out there. Democrats, Republicans.
"I will tell you this: I'm not voting for him tomorrow in the California primary. I'm gonna find another place to put my vote. I may even write in Ronald Reagan because I'm offended by what he said."
Later in the interview, Reagan said his dad would most likely not call himself a Trump supporter.
"My father would not vote for Donald Trump in tomorrow's primary in California," the younger Reagan said of the late president. "And he may even say, 'I didn't leave the party. The party left me.'"
Reagan said he believes Trump's rise to the top of the GOP is due to media, even accusing Trump of "regurgitating what those on talk radio and social media have been saying forever."
