BBB Statement


Key points:




1. BBB did not send a document of any kind to the Republican debate site last Thursday evening. The document presented to debate moderators did not come from BBB that nigh -

2. Trump University does not currently have an A rating with BBB. The BBB Business Review for this company has continually been “No Rating” since September 2015. Prior to that, it fluctuated between D- and A+.

6. During the period when Trump University appeared to be active in the marketplace, BBB received multiple customer complaints about this business. These complaints affected the Trump University BBB rating, which was as low as D- in 2010. As the company appeared to be winding down, after 2013, no new complaints were reported. Complaints over three years old automatically rolled off of the Business Review, according to BBB policy. As a result, over time, Trump University’s BBB rating went to an A in July 2014 and then to an A+ in January 2015.

7. Trump University has never been a BBB Accredited Business. The document handed to the debate moderators on Thursday night could not have been an actual “Better Business Bureau accreditation notice” for this business. - See more at: www.bbb.org... usiness-bureaus/#sthash.z24ZSkXa.dpuf



we as a country are screwed between the two front runner BS artists Clinton and Trump .

Looks like the real Grade was a D- while the school was active.

Rubio misrepresented the truth when he said it was now a D- and so did Trump when he said it was now an A, in reality the BBB said it was a "No Rating" since 9/2015

Also Trump appears to have flat out lied that it was a D because they never gave the BBB any information and it became an A when they gave the BBB the information.

According to the BBB the reason it ended with an A was because after the university ended people stopped complaining and they have a 3 year period where they are automatically rolled off.

So the gist of it is that it could have an A+ rating in 2015, but that's because it was closed in 2010 and after three years negative complaints are dropped... so because it received no new complaints after it closed in 2010 by 2015 it had an A+ rating, then "no rating."

I guess the gist of this is that when the university closed in 2010 it had an D- rating. So did Trump produce an entirely fake document at a Debate? Interesting.

Trump may have provided paperwork showing an A from when the university was closed or was about to close. Companies easily manipulate the BBB. "geek Squad' at that big box electronics store is an example. They are a total ripoff. Every time one location falls below a C-, the store changes the region that Geek Squad or entire store is in. It shuffles them around to keep the letter grade up.

Businesses can become a member of the BBB and are more closely watched. If they are not a member, the BBB goes by the information it receives and follows the procedure it did in the case of trump University.

This was laughable before but now it's jut embarrassing. Trump is creating props to back up his BS and presenting them on national TV.

Last night during a victory speech/press conference, he also showed off some steaks that were claimed to be Trump Steaks brand steaks and were not.

Got interrupted but yes, we as a country are screwed between the two front runner BS artists Clinton and Trump .

According to the BBB the reason it ended with an A was because after the university ended people stopped complaining since they no longer were in business and the BBB has a 3 year period where they are automatically rolled off.

I will update the OP

OK, lets compare negatives.

Trump - One of his ventures had a D- in 2010, exaggerates on some accomplishments.
Cruz - Confirmed sleazeball liar, may be Zodiac Killer.
Hillary - Under investigation by FBI, lied about dodging sniper fire.
Sanders - Supports partial birth abortion at any gestation period, aka infanticide. Never worked a day in his life.

But don't vote for Trump because he is obviously worse than the other choices.

Well there are plenty of threads for comparisons but this thread is about Trump statements not exactly aligning with the BBB.

However, here is my comparison .

Rubio,Cruz,Clinton = same as always.

Basically the only way I would rally behind trump is , if Hillary wins the DNC endorsement


Trump is 50/50 wild card and has a history of shaydyness . I don't understand how anyone could put any trust on Trump or Hillary.

Sanders will have a lame duck congress and will bring corruption to the forefront . Bringing corruption to the forefront is about as good as we are going to get in this election cycle.

Corruption is ISSUE #1 not Immigration, abortions,Muslims, healthcare, economy, jobs. You can't fix any of those things without first fixing corruption. You can't fix corruption until it becomes issue # 1 , you can't make it issue #1 until its discussed from the top.

Trump also failed the immigration issue litmus test while Bernie passed it with flying colors.

While I have very little faith on Bernie, I much less faith on Trump and none on the rest including Hillary.
