Remember Trump University?
February 26, 2016

Remember Trump University? Yeah, well, that’s okay because they never heard of you either.

But, something fun may be afoot with good Ole Trump U.

This spring, just as the GOP nomination battle enters its final phase, frontrunner Donald Trump could be forced to take time out for some unwanted personal business: He’s due to take the witness stand in a federal courtroom in San Diego, where he is being accused of running a financial fraud.

It seems that Trump University was a $60,000 per person fraud.

The plaintiffs, former students at Trump University, allege they were misled into maxing out their credit cards and paying up to $60,000 in fees for seminars in hotel ballrooms and “mentoring” by Trump’s “hand-picked” real estate experts.

Donald Trump misleading people to get their money? Really? You could plug me in to a downshifting nuclear powered submarine and I wouldn’t be more shocked!

Trump on the witness stand? That’ll be yuuuuugh.

Can you help us out?
