Trump University....Whoa...
Trump's business education company and an affiliate, Trump Institute, have been deluged by complaints from more than 150 students in at least 22 states claiming they've been cheated out of tens of thousands of dollars, the Daily News found.

Those complaining include dozens of retirees, veterans, laid-off workers and seniors living on fixed incomes, records show.

In letters, e-mails and interviews, they charge they were pressured to max out credit cards or draw down a 401(k) to enroll in courses they found useless - then were refused refunds.

The claims, which don't involve Trump personally, focus on two for-profit firms: Trump University, the nonaccredited, Web-based school he founded in 2005 and Trump Institute, a training center that paid him a licensing fee to hold real estate seminars under his name.

1. What do they mean "don't involve Trump personally"?
That ain't Mickey Mouse's name on those companies.

The dumshit wants to run for president, and two companies named for him are the subject of hundreds of complaints of financial trickery by consumers.

Of course our liberal media will see that this inconvenient truth is kept from the electorate, so maybe this story will be like the tree that falls down in the woods with nobody around to hear it.

4. I wonder if he "lends" his name, actually probably sells it.
Probably more likely to reel in the suckers with a "big" name like Trump's on your "university". Myself I would feel responsible if my name was on something and the people felt cheated. That's just me though, I happen to have a conscience. :-(

5. you also seem to have considerably more IQ points than does The Donald
It isn't smart marketing to have your name associated with questionable businesses.
