New York’s top prosecutor promised Sunday that Trump University students who allege they were defrauded by the now-defunct operation are "going to get the money back."

In an interview with host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" radio show, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who filed a $40 million lawsuit in 2013, repeated his blasts at the real estate school that bears the name of the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

The remarks begin at the 10:40-minute mark.


"I’m proud to be representing the people of New York state, and we’re going to get the money back for the thousands of people who were ripped off by this — it wasn’t even a university," Schneiderman, who has filed one of the lawsuits pending against Trump about his now-defunct operation.

"[Trump University] never registered with the state Department of Education who were chasing them around trying to get them to stop calling themselves a university," he added. "It was really a bait-and-switch scheme. Thousands of people were bilked out of millions of dollars. We’re confident in our legal position."

Schneiderman said he's unsure New York’s lawsuit against Trump U will go to trial before the November election, but added: "I think we will get there."

"This has been getting a lot of attention, probably more attention than it should get, but [Trump’s] decided to go on the offensive," he said. "It’s become embroiled in presidential politics, which is really too bad, but that’s what happens sometimes."
