Ex-employees criticise Trump University

Newly released documents in a lawsuit against Trump University cite several former employees of the institution as saying the university didn't live up to what it promised students – calling it a “fraudulent scheme” and “a total lie”, writes Jacob Gershman for The Wall Street Journal.

Among the most scathing assessments from former workers came from Ronald Schnackenberg, a witness for the plaintiffs who worked for the institution as a Trump University sales manager in Manhattan for less than a year in 2007. He described boiler room-like pressure tactics that “preyed upon the elderly and uneducated”, saying he believed that “Trump University was engaging in misleading, fraudulent and dishonest conduct”.

The declarations of former employees and other internal company documents were unsealed last Tuesday. US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over the litigation, ordered the release of the documents. The lawsuit brought by ex-students accuses Donald Trump and his now-defunct Trump University of tricking people into spending thousands of dollars on real estate seminars with false promises of access to Trump and his real estate secrets.
