It didn’t go well, given that President Donald Trump has been mired in a scandal of his own over Trump University seminars. In 2017, Trump paid $25 million to settle a class-action lawsuit accusing him of fraud.

Kinda almost as bad as accepting help from a foreign adversary to install a puppet regime.

Could be worse, they could have a job where they lie & twist “alternate facts” for a living.

Wait till you hear how your boss and his son in law got into college.

Did you not get the memo that your boss literally used a fake university for the sole purpose of scamming the gullible.
