Trump Calls For ‘Retraction’ of Ad Slamming His University

The Republican presidential front-runner is demanding that a super PAC supporting rival candidate Marco Rubio stop running a commercial about former Trump University students who are suing the billionaire businessman for alleged fraud.

“Donald J. Trump is requesting the immediate retraction of the ads created by Conservative Solutions PAC, which clearly was unlawfully coordinated with lightweight Senator Marco Rubio on these misleading commercials,” a news release from the Trump campaign stated. “The ads feature three individuals who are part of a lawsuit against Trump University, an educational program that has a 98 percent approval rating from all attendees. These individuals provided written praise of their experience in school surveys. … Rubio is grasping at straws and produced … false and libelous ads. It just shows how low a failing campaign will go to help their failing candidate.”

Trump released surveys that two of the students in the commercial filled out after attending the school. Kevin Scott wrote “outstanding” and “very informative” as his answers to the question, “What was your overall experience?” He added: “I feel very comfortable,” and awarded a top rating to nearly all aspects of the educational program.

The university, which no longer exists, consisted of seminars in hotel ballrooms, according to Newsmax. Students also received individual mentoring from real-estate investors. The lawsuit claims that Trump charged the attendees as much as $35,000 each, without providing the education and training he promised.
