Donald Trump admitted he did nothing to prepare for what turned into a nearly two-hour deposition he gave in June.
“I would say virtually nothing,” Trump said when asked about what he did to prepare for the deposition, later adding he did not look at documents beforehand.
The footage of the deposition was released Friday after BuzzFeed News filed separate court motions seeking the full release of both the transcripts of the depositions and the video footage.
The deposition was part of a lawsuit Trump filed against restaurateurs who backed out of an agreement to operate in his Old Post Office hotel project in Washington, DC, after the Republican nominee made inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants in his speech announcing his presidential bid.
In the deposition, Trump suggested he planned those comments before his announcement.
