Trump University wasn’t a university at all but that didn’t stop Donald Trump from selling it as one. Recruiters for Trump U. targeted the elderly and the uneducated, getting them to sign up for a free course, which led to a $1,500 three-day seminar. The idea was that Trump would be revealing his real-estate secrets, although it turns out Trump didn’t develop the curriculum nor did he hand pick the teachers as advertised. From there, the extent of the fraud surrounding Trump “University” only gets worse.
Students of Trump U. filed a lawsuit. Trump eventually settled rather than face a prolonged trial for fraud.
How defrauding Americans wasn’t enough to sink the Trump campaign during the Republican primaries we’ll never know.
