6000 Trump university alumni were compensated. In exchange, Trump admits no wrong doing. And thus ended the 7 years Trump university saga. However the crook Michael Sexton who conceived and run Trump university escaped justice. The charges included calling it a university when it wasn't although Trump university was later renamed the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative, and fraudulent ads which stated students would be taught Trump's business secrets that made him a billionaire.

I don't see that the settlement vindicated Pres Trump but I do see that he was allowed to settle without admitting wrong doing. There is a difference.

Those students would have never won the case against Trump in court. Trump didn't force them to go to Trump university. They did it on their own volition. Trump was being kind hearted to compensate them.

Even if that were true, which I doubt, how does that vindicate him? I think it makes him look guilty and cheap.

Kind hearted?

Trump made a horrible business decision to allow his brand being attached to what amounts to a scam, and he profited from it.

This is the result of poor decision making.

I agree. Trump university was a major fu. It was the worst Trump brand business ever. Maybe Michael Sexton was a Dem operative who was hired by DNC to sabotage Trump? Who knows?

However, there are truth in advertising laws. Trump University was not a University. They assert, among other things, that they were enticed to purchase the courses because of misleading advertising.

Everyone has their position, that's how attorneys educate their children.

You look awful in your Trump University cheerleader getup, bud.

This doesn't vindicate anything. Trump had seven years to get the suit thrown out and didn't pull it off. Trump said he'd never settle "when I'm right" and then turns around and settles.

Put the pom-poms down.

It was not a university. A university must have many faculties. Trump university only taught business.

I doubt it has anything to do with politics or sabotage.

They saw an opportunity to make some cash and it bit them in the ass.

Trump U was being sued for 40 million dollars, but they settled for 25.

Thats 25 million times trump got vindicated.

A settlement is more like admitting to wrongdoing and paying somebody off to shut the F up about it.

I have no idea where someone would see it as being vindicated.

I guess y'all just see what you wanna see...

Bill Clinton settled with Paula Jones for nearly a million even though the judge said Paula Jones' claim was baseless.

Jesus, some mental gymnastics you're pulling. Trump paying 25 MILLION dollars is a SETTLEMENT. Had he not SETTLED he would have most definitely been proven of wrong doing WHILE also paying out MORE money.

Trump was completely wrong in CONNING poor people out of their money so stop blaming someone else no one ever heard of.

Your defense of Trump is PATHETIC. And what's really ironic is that Trump brags about NEVER settling lawsuits and yet here he is, settling.

We weren't talking about Bill effin Clinton.

Always deflecting toward somebody else being a bad dog as an excuse for being a bad dog doesn't make one a good dog.

Woof.

Aaaaaaaaactually, one judge threw out her case saying she had insufficient evidence that she had lost her job after telling Billy to back off and then the Supreme Court ruled that a woman doesn't have to be fired to be able to say she had been subjected to sexual harassment at work.

And then Billy settled for more than Jones had asked for initially because he was trying to damage the impeachment case being brought against him.

Don't try to revise history to bolster your cheerleading

..


I disagree. Parties to a law suit settle when each of them believe that the cost of proceeding to trial exceeds the benefit of the likely outcomes of the trial. Remember, a settlement doesn't occur unless BOTH sides settle.

So if as you contend settlement equals wrongdoing then both are admitting it.

Just my thoughts.
