There goes the vice presidential nod… or not.

Newt Gingrich has been openly supportive of Donald Trump but did not shy away from rebuking the presumptive GOP presidential nominee for making racially-sensitive remarks about the judge presiding over a class action lawsuit against Trump University.

“It was one of the worst mistakes Trump has made. Inexcusable,” Gingrich said on “Fox News Sunday,” although he came up short of calling the remark racist.

“That judge is not a Mexican. He’s an American,” he added. “I hope it was sloppiness.”

Gingrich was referring to Trump attacking District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was born in Indiana to Mexican immigrants, charging that the judge had “an absolute conflict” in presiding over the Trump U case because he was “of Mexican heritage.”

“He’s Mexican,” Trump told CNN on Friday. “We’re building a wall between here and Mexico.”

The former GOP House speaker has been one of Trump’s closest advisers and is seen by many as a potential running-mate, and while Gingrich was willing to criticize the candidate, he tempered that shade with high praise for Trump’s political success thus far.

“I’m amazed at his speed, how fast he learns,” Gingrich said. “He’s a remarkable leader. We have a very good relationship.”

He said Trump was at a “turning point” and must become more disciplined to defeat likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but made it clear who he’s supporting.

“Compared to Hillary Clinton, I’d support Donald Trump all year,” Gingrich said. “She’s a much more flawed person.”
