ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump ripped Mitt Romney over his recent comments suggesting the presumptive GOP nominee was a racist. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee had earlier blasted Trump for making comments that he said denigrated Mexicans, women and religion. Speaking at a rally in Tampa, Florida, Trump responded saying, "The stone-cold loser, he choked and when you're a choker, you can never give a choker a second chance." Trump denied being a racist, saying, "I am the least racist person that you've ever met... do you think Don King... is gonna endorse a racist?" he asked in reference to the African-American boxing promoter. The real estate mogul has recently faced intense backlash over comments he made criticizing a Mexican-American judge who is overseeing fraud lawsuits against one of Trump's defunct businesses.
