The money would have been dirty with Hillary


What does the OP have to do with Hillary?

Go away money.

No guilt proven.


If he's not guilty, why did he pay $25 million?

If I was Curio I would have nailed Trump to the wall for having made the bias comments.


And that's why he's a judge and you're not.
He possesses something which you lack, impartiality.

Yep, get it out of the way. Likely no admission of any guilt, etc.

$25 million would be 62.5 years of presidential salary



or 2.5 clinton presidential years


kind of disgusting these two were the choices.

To avoid a court date and testimony being used by the media 24/7 and causing chaos.
Sometimes it is better to limit the number of battles you have to fight.

No UK, if Trump knew the accusations were without merit, he wouldn't have paid $25 million. Plain and simple.

It has nothing to do with it, but my rebuttal stated that the money would have been dirty regardless of whoever took office, so i dont care to see Trumps tax returns.. but i'm sure they'll be released once his audit is complete.

And also, with your "if he's not guilty, why did he pay $25 million?" comment, people settle cases all the time to make them go away.. Its not an admission of guilt, but more so you don't want to deal with a legal battle being dragged out that could cost countless millions anyways, so if you value your time (as I'm sure Trump does) and you have a Presidency looming, its easier to just settle and make the whole headache go away...

Indeed... and a condition of the settlement was no admission of guilt.

abcnews.go.com...


Of course he would make that part of the deal.

If it's 5000 people, that's $5000 a piece or 15% of the 35,000 fee. If the lawyers cut comes out of it, even less.

Remember, he never settles, he said so himself.

Translation: I'm a liar.

Yep - good deal. He's a deal maker after all. He came out ahead.

He knew he was going to lose. Long list of screwees trailing behind him.

Yep, a 2008 study found that settling cases was cheaper than going to trial.... A settlement is not an admission of guilt, but more so the cheaper of the two routes vs going to a dragged out trial

He probably doesn't care about the money - becoming President just tripled his brand value at least.

I'm not the one paying $25 million so I'm fine.

You bet I'm happy about the outcome. Those students are seeing justice.

It's too bad you've allowed your cognitive dissonance to cloud your judgement over this case. If you actually read up on the matter regarding TrumpU maybe you'd understand why Trump ended up paying out. It has nothing to do with media bias. Has little to do with Trump running as president as this case has been going on for years.

Good OP.
The point about students at other 'universities' is a very good one.

People indeed do settle lawsuits all of the time even if they are not at fault.

For example, we sold our house a number of years ago. A few months later they came after us for something they said was an issue with the house that we must have known about. Which was complete BS.

Anyway, they wanted money, we said 'no.' Shortly thereafter we go sued. Then we got representation (lawyer).

It went as far as arbitration, and at that point we said "fine, we'll settle this". Because if it had gone on any longer, it would have cost us more in legal fees than what we negotiated for a settlement. I'm 100% sure that had it gone to trial we would have won, but it would have cost us even more money (and hassle).

Unfortunately in the US if you get sued, and even go to court and you win, the side that sues you owes you nothing. Which sucks but that's for another thread.

Wonder if he'll settle with the Freedom Kids he ripped off. I imagine a 5k to 15k law suit won't be settled. He figures the cost will be greater to the plaintiff so it's "too bad, so sad".

They should Trump to the People's Court and go for 5k.

These students are lucky in my opinion, even if $25 million doesn't cover the full cost. You had literally 1000's of ITT students stuck with $1000's in loans and nothing to show for it. I hope, I really do hope, this case will help with other cases against fake universities.

I did read up about the case. I think he would have won.
I am sure Trump doesn't mind paying out $25m. It's peanuts for him now, never mind the effect being President will have on his brand and the success of his business.
Looks like he just keeps winning.
