"The students on this video are representative of the many students who were overwhelmingly satisfied with Trump University," the campaign said. "Rather than listen to the media spin, listen to the hard-working students who can attest first-hand to the truth about Trump University."
The video recently filmed at Trump Tower in New York features Casey Hoban, a Connecticut bottled-water entrepreneur who said he earned "incalculable" profits on real estate deals after attending one of Trump's two-day courses about a decade ago.
Not disclosed by the campaign is that Hoban is also a Trump family acquaintance whose protein-infused water is stocked at Trump's golf courses, restaurants and resorts.
Hoban told The Associated Press that his business relationship with the Trump organization bloomed after he attended a charity event held last year held by a Trump family foundation. Trump's son Eric Trump later tweeted Hoban a personal thank you for his $25,000 donation.
The campaign's video also featured Michelle Gunn of Tennessee, who said she made back her Trump University tuition on her very first real estate deal.
"I see and hear there are former Trump University students coming out, and I have to sit back and think to myself if they were given the same education, the same opportunity, how come they didn't have the same results?" Gunn says in the video. "I think that is because you have to take action upon yourself. You have to go out and make it happen."
Not mentioned by the campaign is that the celebrity billionaire previously endorsed a self-help book authored by Gunn's teenage son, titled "Schooled for Success: How I Plan to Graduate from High School a Millionaire." A website promoting the book also features a photo of a smiling Houston Gunn posing with Trump in what appears to be the then reality TV star's Trump Tower office.
Michelle Gunn, who is listed as a witness for the defense in a lawsuit against Trump University, previously appeared in videos praising another business seminar program and a marketing service, both unrelated to Trump's enterprises. Gunn, who did not have a listed phone number, did not immediately respond to a message sent through her son's website.
