At the Republican primary debate in Detroit, Donald Trump said that the fraud case against him will likely drag on for three years of so.
Questioned by moderator Megyn Kelly and attacked by opponent Marco Rubio, Trump said, “Let’s see what happens in court. This is a civil case. Very easy to have settled. Could have settled it now. Let’s see what happens at the end of a couple of years when this case is over, okay.”
Hit by further questioning from Rubio, who said Trump “refused to give them their money back,” Trump said, “I gave many people their money back.”
Then Trump continued: “We will see who is right at the end of a few years. … Let’s see what happens at the end of three years.”
There are less than five months until the Republican National Convention starts on July 18 and nine months until the 2016 general election. The final pretrial conference is scheduled for May 6.
