BREAKING: EX-TRUMP UNIVERSITY STUDENT OBJECTS TO SETTLEMENT DEAL, WANTS TO SUE TRUMP DIRECTLY

A former Trump University student wants to drop out of a recent $25 million class action settlement and take President Trump to trial.

Class member Sherri B. Simpson filed her objection to the November settlement on Monday, a move that could delay or endanger the entire pact, lawyers said.

“This is a serious issue,” class lawyer Patrick Coughlin told the Daily News.

Simpson attended a three-day Trump University seminar in Florida in April 2010 and said the follow-up Gold Elite course she bought was nothing but fool’s gold.

“The Gold Elite program was a scam,” Simpson said in her sworn statement filed in U.S. District Court in San Diego.

“None of the promised resources were made available. The ‘mentor’ assigned to me disappeared and never returned my calls or emails,” she wrote.

“She was fleeced out of $20,000 she could scarcely afford,” Simpson’s New York-based lawyer Gary Friedman told The News on Monday.

He said Simpson, who lives in Florida, joined the class action thinking it would lead to either a trial or an admission of guilt from Donald Trump.

But the final settlement — in which Trump agreed to pay $21 million for two California class action suits and $4 million to the New York Attorney General — included no admission of fault or liability.

The President simply said he agreed to the deal to avoid a trial as he prepared to take office.
