We’re going to be hearing a lot more about Trump University in the coming days, especially after a judge whom Trump had bashed for being a “Mexican” recently ordered the release of several internal Trump U. documents that will be out by the end of the week. CNN spent some time talking with some former Trump University students who described how the “university” took $26,000 of his money and gave him almost nothing in return.

Felicisimo Limon, a retired Navy veteran of 40 years, took a free introductory seminar that convinced him to invest in taking real estate courses at the “school.” However, after five days of “instruction,” he says that he didn’t learn any useful information and was constantly pressured by instructors to pay even more money than what he’d already forked over.

“What the heck are you talking about, more money and I’m not learning anything?” Limon asked rhetorically, before explaining that the courses taught no special real estate secrets or techniques. In fact, CNN says that the only thing somewhat useful he learned about was the benefit of “paying off the unpaid tax benefits of elderly people, keeping them in their homes until they die, but then taking ownership of the property.” Limon said he found this idea to be immoral, which was when he decided that he’d had enough of Trump University.

‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser

Published

on

At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.

Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.

Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
