Clinton Camp Slams Trump University as 'Fraudulent Scheme' | NYT



By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSJUNE 1, 2016, 11:10 A.M. E.D.T.

WASHINGTON Newly released documents about a now-defunct business owned by Donald Trump reveal strategies for enticing people to enroll in real estate seminars even if they couldn't afford it, opening the presumptive Republican nominee up to fresh criticism from Hillary Clinton that he took advantage of vulnerable Americans.

"Trump University was a fraudulent scheme used to prey upon those who could least afford it," Clinton's campaign wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Clinton aides suggested the likely Democratic nominee would use Trump University as part of a broader effort to cast Trump as a callous businessman who promises Americans ways to get ahead, but is only concerned with enriching himself. As part of that effort, Clinton has previously hammered Trump for appearing to cheer for the collapse of the U.S. housing market and for failing to make good on pledges to donate to veterans until he was pressured to follow through by the media.

"He is pitching voters that he can help improve their lives, but it is all a scam whose only goal is to promote Trump," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said.

3. I think most folks realize Trump is just a racist carnival barker...

and he took shortcuts to amass his fortune. But money and power keep you out of jail.

5. I actually agree with Hillary on this.

But what kind of education did they expect to get? I think the outcome would be apparent.
