“Let me ask you this: If your, as president, any of your immigration policies came before the Supreme Court, would it be your wish that the court’s only Latina, Sonia Sotomayor, recuse herself?” NBC News host Lester Holt asked Trump in an interview published Friday. 

"No, it wouldn't. I'd want people that can vote on anywhere. I want people without conflict, and you have to assume they don't have a conflict," Trump said. 

Trump faced controversy earlier this month when he said a federal judge's "Mexican heritage" would be an "absolute conflict" that prevented him from fairly presiding over a case involving Trump University. 

Holt asked whether Trump wanted to walk back his comments on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel. 

"I don't want to walk anything," Trump said.

"I want to just say: We're going to win the case. It's going to be after the election. Trump University, going  to be very successful. We're going to win the case. That's all there is to it. I think it's going to be an easy victory because we have thousands of people that have approved the case so we're going to win the case."
