Troubling Trump

Most of you have heard the buzz about the lawsuit involving the now-defunct Trump University which was the brainchild and machination of none other than presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump.  As a consumer lawyer I am appalled at some of the things that may have occurred. High pressure sales tactics, encouraging people to max out credit cards and loan money to

Not good.  And to think Mr. Trump wants Americans to elect him as their leader and perhaps the most powerful leader in the world. Count me out on that one and with good reason.  Politics aside, this Trump University case and Trump’s handling of it and his other sources of criticism strike me as something less-than-Presidential.  ‘Nuff said.
