WATCH | Reince Priebus, current chairman of the Republican National Committee and soon-to-be chief of staff under Donald Trump's administration, defended the Trump University settlement in an interview on CNN on Sunday.
The ONLY bad thing about winning the Presidency is that I did not have the time to go through a long but winning trial on Trump U. Too bad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2016
The $25 million settlement was outside Trump's usual legal playbook.
WATCH | Priebus also defended Trump's criticism of "sanctuary cities."
WATCH | Priebus also commented on Trump's policy toward Muslims, including a ban on Muslim immigration. Priebus insisted there would be no "religious tests".
However, he told NBC's "Meet the Press" he would not rule out a Muslim registry.
Priebus also addressed the fact that Trump's daughter Ivanka sat in on meetings with foreign leaders, saying this should not be cause for concern
"This is ridiculous. Let's just kind of take a deep breath," he said.
He also deflected a question about undocumented immigrants, saying border security and deporting criminals was more important than the status of so-called Dreamers, who were brought into the U.S. as children.
