ALBANY, N.Y. — New York’s attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40-million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phoney “Trump University” that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.
Trump shot back that the Democrat’s lawsuit is false and politically motivated.
In the peach- and white-veined marble lobby of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, tourists can shop for items from Donald Trump’s clothing line and buy his best-selling book, “Trump: the Art of the Deal.” In the Trump Organization’s offices on the 26th floor, the walls are decorated with images of “The Apprentice” star on the covers of magazines, from Esquire to Playboy.
Donald Trump has invited all the Republican presidential candidates to a debate. Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman properly turned down the offer. Newt Gingrich, hoping for a Trump endorsement like the idea.
One must understand upfront this is not a gracious offer by Donald Trump to conduct a a fair debate. This is a self-serving promotion by Don Trump, for Don Trump, to put none other than Don Trump into the spotlight as kingmaker.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and his eponymous "Trump University" for defrauding students looking to learn about the billionaire's brand of business acumen.
I was really hoping to stay out of the whole "Donald Trump is Running for President" thing, because I truly believed (and pretty much still do) that (a) the spectacle was just a really good, and slightly depressing, publicity stunt for the reality TV star; and (b) anything I said would just give the guy another free commercial (albeit for an extremely limited market). Thus, any discussion of this unserious "candidate's" completely unserious "trade policy" - which is literally nothing more than the immediate imposition of tariffs on all Chinese imports
Locke Meets with Chairman Tata, Minister of Defence A.K. Antony on the margins of Aero IndiaU.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke stressed the importance of innovation in the
U.S.-India trade relationship today in Bangalore with remarks and a discussion with students
and faculty at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) before officially opening
the U.S. Pavilion at Aero India 2011. Bangalore is the second stop of his
three-city high-technology business development trade mission with U.S companies
During the discussion at IISc, Locke interacted with
students, research scholars, and professors at one of India's premier
educational institutions for science and research. Locke discussed how India's
efforts to build a more open commercial environment will help empower the next
generation of Indian innovators to help solve some of the world's most pressing
problems like climate change, poverty and disease.
"I'm optimistic and confident the world is equipped to
deal with the challenges we face – and a big part of the reason is seeing young
people like you," said Locke. Because although these problems are daunting,
they do have solutions. Many of them can be solved with the science, math and
engineering skills that are taught and learned at IISC every
The secretary added that unlocking the full potential of
IISc students and researchers, and indeed the entire U.S.-India trade
relationship, depended on India continuing to work towards "a regulatory
infrastructure that encourages the freer flow of ideas, people, and technologies
across its borders."
It doesn't look like this will be the Christmas that Donald Trump's Grinch heart grows three sizes bigger. This holiday season, the mogul is suing the little city of Rancho Palos Verdes for $100 million -- five times its annual budget.
What injustices could possibly warrant such an immense claim?
