Entrepreneur and Real Estate mogul Donald Trump pounced to defend his business school, which is currently under fire for allegedly cheating people out of thousands, and facing a $40 million dollar lawsuit by the New York State attorney general.
New York’s attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman is suing the “Apprentice” host for cheating students out of their money, promising students a future and career in real estate with Trump’s real estate “secrets,” and operating a school without a license.
Trump fired back at Schneiderman by calling Schneiderman a “political hack.” Trump told "Good Morning America’s" anchor, George Stephanopoulos on Monday that Schneiderman is “just looking for publicity” and looking for “political aid.”
Trump continued to defend himself by saying his real estate, business school is “doing great,” and has a 98% approval rating. “I did this to help people,” Trump said when creating the business real estate school in Manhattan.
Several people, including former student, Bob Guillo borrowed thousands of dollars just to pay tuition to get into the intriguing school that promises to teach you the ins and outs of real estate and how to make lots of money like Donald Trump.
Former student Bob Guillo said he didn’t learn anything and lost his money in the school. “He took my self-respect,” Guillo said about Donald Trump.
New York’s attorney general, Schneiderman claims he is not seeking political aid, and also told NBC’s “Today” show that Trump’s “phony” university was a fraud and “any attorney general would be pursuing this.” So this has nothing to do with seeking media publicity for political gain.
As for Trump, he is sticking to his guns and will continue to defend his name and university, and stands that his school is legitimate with a 98% approval rating.
Trump also admitted that he doesn’t mind the bad publicity. Many times bad publicity is good publicity.
