American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement on Donald Trump settling the Trump University fraud suits for $25 million this afternoon:
“Donald Trump said he doesn’t believe in settling cases “when [he’s] right.” Trump’s not “right” in the Trump University fraud suits and now, he’s paying for it. But this will not be the only legal battle we see during Trump’s presidency — he’s still involved in at least 75 other suits. It will likely not be the last conflict of interest for the Trump White House. American Bridge will continue to hold Trump accountable to make sure he isn’t using the presidency for his own gain.”
