These Ads Of Americans Screwed Over By ‘Trump University’ Are BRUTAL!!
There have been a lot of stories about how people were scammed by Trump University, but someone found the victims and made campaign ads of them.
And they are brutal.
There are more:
“Trump is a fraud, a misrepresentation, a BS artist. America don’t make the same mistake I made with Donald Trump!”
The National Review has a great write up of the entire scam, and it’s really worth reading:
First thing first, Trump University was never a university. When the “school” was established in 2005, the New York State Education Department warned that it was in violation of state law for operating without a NYSED license. Trump ignored the warnings. (The institution is now called, ahem, “Trump Entrepreneur Initiative.”) Cue lawsuits.
Trump University is currently the defendant in three lawsuits — two class-action lawsuits filed in California, and one filed in New York by then-attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who told CNN’s New Day in 2013: “We started looking at Trump University and discovered that it was a classic bait-and-switch scheme. It was a scam, starting with the fact that it was not a university.”
Trump U “students” say the same. In his affidavit, Richard Hewson reported that he and his wife “concluded that we had paid over $20,000 for nothing, based on our belief in Donald Trump and the promises made at the [organization’s] free seminar and three-day workshop.” But “the whole thing was a scam.”
In fact, $20,000 is only a mid-range loss. The lead plaintiff in one of the California suits, yoga instructor Tarla Makaeff, says she was “scammed” out of $60,000 over the course of her time in Trump U.
Here’s a pic of a “graduate” who was promised a photo op with the stubby-fingered vulgarian, but instead got to hang out with a cardboard cutout!!
And it really makes you wonder – why does he need to rent out his name to scam people for a thousands of dollars if he’s a billionaire?
Maybe that’s why he doesn’t want to release those tax forms…
