The open court case regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s defunct business Trump University closed Friday.

The women of “The View” weighed in on the legal matter earlier in the day, and were astonished by what they were reading.

“Trump is nearing a settlement in the Trump University fraud lawsuit. He would agree to pay $20-25 million, and admit no wrong doing,” Whoopi Goldberg announced.

“So why would he pay the money if there was no wrong doing,” Joy Behar asked.

“Because he wants to get it over with,” Goldberg clarified, noting that he has more important things to deal with right now.

“I can’t stress enough how different this is for Donald Trump,” co-host Sunny Hostin noted, pointing to Trump’s previous legal history.

“It’s a complete 180 for him,” Paula Faris said, suggesting that he needs to focus more on his new administration right now than an open legal matter.

Disgruntled former students of Trump University claimed that they paid up to $35,000 to learn real estate secrets from the business tycoon but that the courses fell far short of promises, with no direct contact with Trump.

In his defense, Trump said Trump University had a 98 percent approval rating on student evaluations. Trump University closed in 2010. The case has been ongoing since 2012.
