Trump on Lawsuit He’s Facing: I Didn’t Ask Judge, ‘Who Is Hispanic,’ for ‘Recusal’
DONALD TRUMP: "This is almost like a story on success, because this is the way the world works. So the attorney general gets a campaign contribution from the law firm that's suing me. All of a sudden the attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, not respected in New York doing a terrible job, probably is not electable in New York but who knows, and he meets with owe bow ma, gets a contribution I think it's $15,000 and all of a sudden he meets with Obama in I believe Syracuse and the following day or two brings a lawsuit against me.

It's a civil case, sleazebag law firm that does the class action cases they're routine and I will win the case in the end. I just didn't want to be forced to settle and I could have settled it before I did this and I knew somebody would try to use it for publicity but I believe I can turn it around to show you how dishonest these people are and that's the case.
