"We're going to have professors and adjunct professors that are absolutely terrific," Donald Trump once promised potential students at the now-defunct Trump University in a marketing video. And to reassure them, he made a promise: "These are all people that are handpicked by me." Trump University has been sued for illegal business practices, fraud, and racketeering three times, once by the state of New York and twice by former students in federal courts in California. The school was also investigated and then ceased operations in Texas, where a state regulator claims the probe was dropped for "political reasons"--Trump later gave 35,000 to the gubernatorial campaign of Greg Abbott, who was the Texas attorney general during the Trump University investigation. And it turned out that the "terrific" instructors at Trump University turned out to be mostly high-pressure salesmen who pushed attendees to purchase 35,000 Trump University courses, even if it meant calling their banks for a credit limit raise on the spot.
