‘Fraudulent': Former Employees Describe Trump University in Court Documents

The unsealed documents also included testimony about high satisfaction ratings from students

Two former employees of Trump University called the courses offered by the for-profit real estate school “fraudulent schemes,” saying they focused on making money instead of educating students, according to court testimony, NBC News reported.

Ronald Schnackenberg, a Trump University sales manager from 2006-2007 said in his testimony that “it preyed upon the elderly and uneducated to separate them from their money.” 

Jason Nicholas, a sales executive from May to October of 2007, said he felt the courses "did not provide a legitimate real-estate education" and Trump University was "just selling false hopes and lies."

New documents unsealed by a court order issued last weekend, include testimony from a former executive about high satisfaction rates from its students. Mark Covais, Director of Operations for the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative, collected data, showing “97 percent of TU students” rating the programs “4.85 or higher on a scale of 1-5.”
