Clinton: Trump U Is More Evidence That The Man Himself Is A ‘Fraud!’ (VIDEO)

June 1, 2016 3:13 p.m.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday railed against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, saying that Trump University’s legal troubles go to show the businessman would “scam” the country like he did the people who took his seminars.

Clinton said that Trump and his employees took advantage of people and encouraged them to “max out their credit cards, empty their retirement savings, destroy their financial futures all while making promises they knew were false from the beginning.”

“This is just more evidence that Donald Trump himself is a fraud,” Clinton said at a rally in Newark, New Jersey. “He is trying to scam America the way he scammed all those people at Trump U.”

A federal judge on Tuesday unsealed pages and pages of documents as part of a class action lawsuit against Trump University claiming people who paid thousands of dollars for an education there were misled. The documents revealed the sometimes aggressive techniques used by those associated with Trump U to encourage people to sign up for the pricey classes.
