    He would be foolish not to settle his lawsuits, the same reason he claims he'll sue newspapers for posting fake news but never does. Either way, he's got bigger problems to deal with right now with the FBI on his ass.

    Or all those women that came forward with accusations that he said he would sue.

    He should ask Bill Clinton how to handle those particular issues.

    Why is it that when somebody commits fraud the solution is always to refund money to the people ripped off without jailing the people responsible?

    it's tired and weak to always bring in the clintons as an argument against trump. Is it possible to discuss Trump and his failures without a comparison. Or does it make some people feel better to keep an addendum "but but Hillary" and "but but Bill" or "but but Obama"

    Many/most (at least on this forum) have moved on from the election and are judging Trump on Trump and don't care that Hillary lost. Way past time to move on.

    I've noticed the only ones who haven't moved on seem to be the right wingers. I am starting to believe they are upset with their choice and wish they had the other one so they could keep attacking her for four more years instead of being in defense of a buffoon.

    The only reason Republicans are hanging around on the Hill is to ride the coat tails of Trump. However, as I said before and will continue to say again, Trump will eat the Republican party from the inside out. They need to get all their ducks in order if they want to move onto Tax Reform or they'll never get anything done. Nevermind the Democrats (literally).

    In most cases this happens only if they settle out of court. Maddoff is proof of what happens if you take things to court. In Trumps situation, there's a reason why he chooses to settle out of court most of the time. It's not hard to read between the lines.

    Prosecutors also have the choice be seem to wuss out. Fraud was truly at astronomic portions in the banking crisis, yet very few people actually went to jail.

    Pretty sure it was reported a while back before he was president that he would be settling this one.

    I thought he already paid it right before he signed up? or was that something else?

    It's stated in the piece above. The lawyers all agreed to the terms - but it still needed the judge to sign off on it. The judge could have decided no - that it should go to court. However since both parties agreed and it seemed reasonable restitution would be given to all, there was little doubt a judge would deny the agreement.

    Yeah, it's self-defeating. Wasn't Trump supposed to be unlike all the other politicians?

    But all his followers do now is suggest similarities. Seems a bit muddled/conflicted.

    Trump would do far better to consult with fellow groper Bill Cosby. Birds of a feather….

    Bill crams cigars up women's vaginas and then lies to the entire nation about it. I think Bill would make a better consultant.

    That's always been the case. They want it both ways: compare him to Republican idol Ronald Reagan like Jeffrey Lord does, while at the same time writing off his blunders and incompetence as a learning curve because he hasn't been a politician. It's all rather ridiculous.

    It's more than ridiculous. It's weak.

    If you give someone a job they say they can do, but it quickly becomes clear they're incapable, then you fire them.

    Harsh, but that's how business works. Trump knows the rules.
