“I’m not proud of the way I went about it.
I made a mistake.
I’m sorry,” he told ABC News.”
It’s hard for me to watch Donald Trump and say I’m okay with it.
But I understand it.
It was a mistake.”
Trump fired his attorney, Jay Sekulow, in January after it emerged he had not paid the federal government for a legal defense fund that had been set up to defend him against Trump University.
Sekulow said on CNN that Trump’s “toxic” behavior and actions were a reflection of his personal and professional shortcomings.
The New York Times reported that the money he and Sekulows lawyers used for legal fees had been spent on personal expenses and hotel bills.
