Trump a ‘fraud’, says Hillary Clinton

world Updated: Jun 03, 2016 07:06 IST

NEWARK: Hillary Clinton has unloaded on Donald Trump as a “fraud” who would “scam America the way he scammed all of those people at Trump U” – referring to the Republican’s defunct business training programme that is at the center of a class action lawsuit.

The Democratic front-runner on Wednesday seized on the findings from a trove of documents made public by a judge that describe how Trump staff targeted prospective students’ financial weakness to get them to enrol in his high-priced real estate courses.

“Trump and his employees took advantage of vulnerable Americans, encouraging them to max out their credit cards, empty their retirement savings, destroy their financial futures – all while making promises they knew were false from the beginning,” Clinton said during a rally at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey.

“This is just more evidence that Donald Trump himself is a fraud. He is trying to scam America the way he scammed all those people at Trump U.”

A series of recent polls found Clinton and Trump neck and neck in a prospective general election match-up, though her campaign has attributed the closeness to the fact that Clinton is still running a primary race.

Her campaign has said it expects to clinch the Democratic nomination on 7 June.
