It’s done a fantastic job,” Trump told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “We have a 98 percent approval rating among students.”Trump held several TV interviews to further contest the lawsuit filed Saturday by Schneiderman, which alleges the real estate mogul helped run a phony university that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars.“This is a political hack looking to get publicity,” Trump said.His attorney, Michael Cohen, said Saturday that Schneiderman was upset the reality TV star didn’t give him more campaign contributions, which he claims Schneiderman sought even while investigating Trump University. Cohen called it extortion.Trump, in interviews with “Good Morning America” and NBC’s “Today,” denied Schneiderman’s claims that he never met with students and didn’t pick instructors.last_img read more
