President-elect Trump tweeted Saturday that one drawback to winning the presidency was that he no longer has time to fight a case involving Trump University that he just settled.

Trump agreed to pay a $25 million settlement to victims of Trump University on Friday and began tweeting his thoughts on the case by Saturday morning.

“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,” the president-elect tweeted. “Too bad!”

Trump also noted on Twitter that he settled the case simply “because as President I have to focus on our country.”

Trump is working on his transition to the White House this weekend and has a scheduled visit with 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who has been an outspoken critic of the next president.
