From the AP:
Donald Trump will testify after the presidential election on a class-action lawsuit that accuses the billionaire businessman and his now-defunct Trump University of defrauding people who paid up to $35,000 for real estate seminars.
A federal judge in San Diego on Friday set a Nov. 28 trial. Trump lawyer Daniel Petrocelli says the presumptive GOP nominee plans to attend most, if not all, of trial and will take the witness stand.
Good news for presumptive GOP nominee, but we’re sure to hear cries from Dems about the timing.
