Trumps problem efter valet blev just större

Enligt AP har flera personer som Trump påstod att han själv valde ut för det sk ”Trump University” en tveksam bakgrund.

Donald Trump says he hand-picked only the best to teach success at Trump University. But dozens of those hired by the company had checkered pasts — including serious financial problems and even convictions for cocaine trafficking or child molestation, an Associated Press investigation has found.

Civilmålet kommer inledas några veckor efter presidentvalet är över. En central fråga i målet är hur involverad han var i att välja ut personer, eftersom det påståendet i marknadsföringen påverkade köparna.

Half the 68 former faculty and staff identified by AP had personal bankruptcies, foreclosures, credit card defaults, tax liens or other indicators of significant money troubles prior to teaching Trump University courses promoting ”wealth building” and ”how to invest like a billionaire,” according to AP’s review. Many of those hired to teach did not have college degrees and were not licensed to broker real estate.

At least four had felony convictions.
