A 'total lie': Trump University ex-staffers condemn school as 'fraudulent scheme'

Trumo Y a 'total lie'Some of the harshest critics of Trump University have been revealed to be former employees of the now-defunct university majority-owned by Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican US presidential candidate.

In sworn testimony, three former staff members have described the real estate school as “a facade, a total lie” and a “fraudulent scheme” that “preyed upon the elderly and uneducated to separate them from their money”.


How Trump Is Using the Presidency to Sell Trump Inc.

How Tump is selling Trump, Inc.It is almost impossible to separate Donald Trump the presidential candidate from Donald Trump the businessman and huckster—one whose name is synonymous with the many hotels, buildings, golf courses and products, including a university, he has licensed or purchased, a name he seems to value so highly that it alone makes up a huge share of the $10 billion net worth he claims.

Nor is Trump showing any signs even now—though he has the GOP nomination all but in hand and moves around with Secret Service protection—of giving up his active role in his businesses. On Wednesday, Trump announced he will travel to Scotland on June 24 to preside over the grand reopening of Trump Turnberry, the luxury golf resort that bears his name.


Inside the Trump University 'playbooks'

Trump U playbookThe documents are evidence in a California class action suit -- Art Cohen v. Donald J. Trump -- that alleges the now-defunct Trump University failed to deliver on its promises to provide a premier real estate education with instructors "hand-picked" by Trump. The suit also alleges that the University would "upsell" students from one seminar to more expensive ones.

The order to release the documents was granted by U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel after a request by the Washington Post. Trump's attorneys had fought to keep the playbooks private, on the grounds that they contained trade secrets. Curiel, however, didn't find enough merit in that argument.


Shady accounting underpins Trump’s wealth

shady accounting underpins Trump claimsDonald Trump claims a net worth of more than $10 billion and an income of $557 million. But he appears to get there only by overvaluing properties and ignoring his expenses.

POLITICO spoke with more than a dozen financial experts and Trump’s fellow multimillionaires about the presumptive Republican nominee’s financial statement. Their conclusion: The real estate magnate’s bottom line — what he actually puts in his own pocket — could be much lower than he suggests. Some financial analysts said this, and a very low tax rate, is why Trump won’t release his tax returns.


California Gov. Jerry Brown endorses Hillary Clinton

Jerry Brown endorses Hillary California Gov. Jerry Brown endorsed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the state's primary June 7, citing her "tenacity and skill" as the best way for Democrats to stop Donald Trump.

Brown lauded the outsider campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders centered on issues of economic inequality, noting, "In 1992, I attempted a similar campaign" for president.



Michael Hayden: Trump Is Helping ISIS

Michael HadenDonald Trump may have vowed to “bomb the shit” out of the Islamic State, but his anti-Muslim rhetoric may actually be helping the terror group, according to one of the United States’ top foreign policy experts.

Michael Hayden, the former head of both the CIA and the NSA, explained in an interview with the Guardian that “the jihadist narrative is that there is undying enmity between Islam and the modern world.”


Donald Trump and Chris Christie, the Twin Villains of Atlantic City

Trump and Christie killed Atlantic CityEarlier this month, at the very moment Donald Trump was naming Chris Christie to head a still-theoretical presidential transition team, Bill Dilorenzo, an Atlantic City fire captain, was inside the Ducktown Tavern worrying if his city was about to go belly up.

The Ducktown, a bar located a few blocks from a Boardwalk whose dead center is still a fossilized former Trump Plaza Casino, stripped of all Trump branding by order of a judge, was one of several bars to offer discounts to police and firefighters while their paychecks were deferred to keep the city afloat. (The bar had also offered $1 Fireball shots to anyone signing a petition against a state takeover sought by the governor.)
