Discussions concerning the Trump Tower deal in Moscow continued through at least November 2016, but the project was ultimately scuttled. The interactions have remained a central focus of inquiries into Trump's interactions with the Russian government and potential collusion between the Kremlin and members of the Trump campaign.
"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.

Donald Trump claims to have racked up a quick 11 million since Tuesday, based on statements by his son and a top Republican official. The joint fundraising committee that Trump shares with the Republican Party raised about 5 million, Republican National Committee chief strategist Sean Spicer tweeted on Wednesday. That would add to roughly 6 million raised at a New York fundraising event -- according Trump's son in an interview with CNN . "We're going to raise a lot of money," Eric Trump, the GOP candidate's son, told CNN's "OutFront." "We don't need the kind of money that Hillary [Clinton] needs," he added.
