Donald Trump: I had to settle Trump University case to focus on our country

President-elect Donald Trump sounded off on his $25m payout to students who accused him of fraud on Saturday, as he prepared for a meeting with former foe Mitt Romney, tipped as a possible, if unlikely, nominee for secretary of state.

On Friday the US president-elect settled class-action fraud lawsuits relating to his Trump University for $25m, avoiding the public embarrassment of having to testify in court, despite having previously vowed to fight the cases to the end.

On Saturday he sought to explain in a tweet:

He added:

The suits claimed that Trump university misled students and failed to deliver on its promises in programmes that cost up to $35,000. Trump had denied the allegations and insisted he would contest them in court. In February, he maintained: “Trump University has a 98% approval rating. I could have settled but won’t out of principle!”
