Cruz and Rubio Both Go After Trump for His 'University'

February 26, 2016

In Thursday's Republican presidential debate, both Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz went after Donald Trump over Trump University, The Washington Post reported. Trump University was never a real university, but offered courses on Trump's approach to real estate and business. In 2010, New York State ordered Trump to stop referring to the institution as a university. Trump is currently facing two lawsuits from former students -- and his opponents for the Republican nomination clearly wanted to get viewers of the debate to read up on the suits, with suggestions that they Google "Trump University." The Post analysis suggested that many people in fact did so.
