These were get rich courses. So what.
I wish I would have thought about it.
it is not the content but those trying to use the content who fail
I mean, at the time, these folks wanted to be like Trump.
I mean, talk about low IQ's.
These people were spending 10's of thousands to be like someone else and be rich. That's it. There is no free lunch in America.
"Ya, he wasn't accredited, that would be the only 'downplay,' calling yourself a university...everybody knew he wasn't credited. I think he provided a good service."
Zimmerman says there was no one tip or method he learned that changed his fortunes, but that he never entertained such expectations to begin with.
"If you're doing a real estate deal, not everything is cut and dry — a lot of variables in there. If you put a program together saying, 'This is what you do next' ...It could be done, but I don't think [any] go to that extent."
He also rejected the notion that course participants were only out to make a quick buck.
"I don't get the get-rich-quick thing," he said. "There's nothing there about getting rich quick. I've done real estate since 1995 off and on, it takes a lot of experience and knowledge of how things work."
To this day, he says, he uses the lessons he learned to manage his family's trust.
And if the University were able to come back in compliance with the statutes it allegedly violated, he would recommend it.
"I would still advocate the books. If Trump University ever decided to start back up, maybe if they changed the format — it's not such hard sell. I think the value is there."
But again, this is not even what I would consider news in a election cycle. It is all simple fodder to keep people from seeing him creep up to 50% in nationwide polling.
Charging people to be like me is not a crime.
Ignoring requests for security that should have been fulfilled that led to the death of US citizens.
R. J. Lehmann of R Street writes: The Trump campaign ended the third quarter with $254,772.88 of cash on-hand, which is about 48 percent less than the $487,736.16 with which it started the quarter. Trump is therefore spending money at a faster clip than he’s raising it. Moreover, the campaign also has incurred more than $1.8 million of debts and obligations – no doubt, many of them to Trump himself (he’s billed the campaign $700,000 for the use of his jet). That leaves the campaign with negative cash, which should be a familiar position for the real estate magnate whose companies have declared bankruptcy four times.
