New Anti-Donald Trump Ads Feature Trump University Customers

"I was trumped by Trump"

A conservative group released new television ads Friday accusing presidential candidate Donald Trump of taking advantage of Trump University customers.

The American Future Fund has committed more than $3 million to airing the ads, CNN reports. The ad comes a day after rival Republican Marco Rubio took aim at Trump over Trump University, which bills itself as a school where aspiring real estate moguls can learn the billionaire’s secrets to success. But Trump University has long been criticized and Trump faces several lawsuits alleging that the company defrauded its students.

“I was trumped by Trump,” says Bob, a character at the center of one ad. “I paid $35,000 at Trump University and all I got was a picture of myself with a cut out of Donald Trump.”

Trump has pushed back against recent criticism over Trump University by saying he won most of the lawsuits regarding it.
