Former Trump University Workers Call the School a ‘Lie’ and a ‘Scheme’ in Testimony – Michael Barbaro and Steve Eder, The New York Times
Trump University staff encouraged financially strapped students to max out their credit cards and then get more credit cards to pay for classes.
One sales manager for Trump University, Ronald Schnackenberg, recounted how he was reprimanded for not pushing a financially struggling couple hard enough to sign up for a $35,000 real estate class, despite his conclusion that it would endanger their economic future. He watched with disgust, he said, as a fellow Trump University salesman persuaded the couple to purchase the class anyway.
Trump says the accusations come from a small group of disaffected former employees.
