Donald Trump launched an attack on the alleged victims of Trump University in a new ad, not forgetting to mention “lightweight senator Marco Rubio.”
He called out two of the victims by name and showed the world their ratings of his courses. He’s on the hunt for another victim whose name he didn’t mention.
If you read on, you will see that Trump is mistaken on a number of issues but its doubtful it will matter to his fans because they are not really voting for Trump so much as they are voting for his movement. Trump was the first one to put massive illegal immigration on the table along with the bad trade deals the US has signed. What he has done for the anti-PC fervor goes without saying.
Marco Rubio in particular has hit Trump hard for his “fake university” and has called Trump a “con man.” Megyn Kelly questioned Trump about the D- rating of the university during the last debate. Before the closing statements, he responded by saying the university has an A rating.
The fax he handed to the Fox News panel was an A rating for Trump University which he said just came from the Better Business Bureau.
That interaction was caught on video and tweeted by Independent Journal Review.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) on Tuesday quickly and succinctly refuted a number of statements that Trump has made about the University, a now-defunct real estate seminar provider that about 5,000 students allege was a scam.
The Better Business Bureau also refuted Trump’s claims that it had “a 98 percent approval rating from the people who took the course.”
BBB said, “During the period when Trump University appeared to be active in the marketplace, BBB received multiple customer complaints about this business. These complaints affected the Trump University BBB rating, which was as low as D- in 2010.”
The A rating resulted from complaints being “automatically rolled off” after three years.
Trump said something different during the debate, insisting that BBB gave him a D- rating because his company had not submitted the requested documents. “Before they had the information,” the program scored poorly, Trump said, but “once they had the information … it is right now an A.”
Those surveys where the complainants raved about the seminars might say a lot more however.
This is his current rating.
