Plot / Description

"Trump victim: George Hanus | The Briefing"

Voiceover

Donald Trump took my money and ran with it. I became really interested in Trump University because they were gonna be following the recipe book that Donald Trump has been following all of his life.  
We're gonna teach you what you need to know.  
They were really high pressure sales people. I had some IRA money stashed away, and it was pretty much the end of what I had stashed away on my savings. And they reassured me that I would be able to make my money back within a very short period of time. So I was like, okay, I'm going to go all in, and I'm going to invest in myself, because I believed in what Donald Trump was telling me. So I started thinking something was really up when I realized that my mentor was not a real estate professional at all. He was a retired person that was reading off of a script. And then he would only take three phone calls from me, and after those three phone calls, he was gone. So then I started thinking, was like, wait a minute, I met these people, not at a university, but at a hotel conference room, and I gave them every last penny that I had, and they pick up all their bags and they were gone.  
It was a scam, starting with the fact that it was not a university.  
Even a former member of Trump's own sales staff testified that it was, among other things, a joke, a facade and was just selling false hopes and lies.  
So here I am, out my savings, anything that I was going to be doing in the future for my kids, or my retirement, is all gone. So this is fraud, and this is big time fraud because he's done this with thousands and thousands of people. If you look at how he's negotiating his way into the presidency, you'll realize he's just playing this country just like he played everybody else in the Trump University.

Donald Trump took my money and ran with it. 
George Hanus 
IT Consultant 
I became really interested in Trump University because they were going to be following the recipe book that Donald Trump has been following all of his life. 
We're going to teach you what you need to know.  
They sold George on real estate courses -  
$1,500 for a beginner's course 
and $12,000 for an advanced hands-on course. 
They were really high pressure sales people. 
I had some IRA money stashed away, and it was pretty much the end of what I had left on my savings.  
And they reassured me that I'd be able to make my money back in a very short period of time. 
So I was like, okay, I'm going to go all in,  
and I'm going to invest in myself,  
because I believed in what Donald Trump was telling me.  
His $12,000 investment brought promises of an "expert" real estate mentor. 
So I started thinking something was really up when I realized that my mentor was not a real estate professional at all. 
He was a retired person that was reading off of a script.  
And then he would only take three phone calls from me, 
and after those three phone calls, he was gone. 
So then I started thinking... 
I met these people not at a university, but at a hotel conference room,  
and I have them every last penny that I had, 
and they pick up all their bags, and they were gone. 
It was a scam, starting with the fact that it was not a university. (Eric Schneiderman, New York Attorney General) 
Even a former member of Trump's own sales staff testified that it was... 
"...a joke...It was a facade ... it was just selling false hopes and lies." 
So here I am, out my savings, anything that I was going to be doing in the future for my kids, or my retirement, is all gone. 
So this is fraud, and this is big time fraud, 
because he's done this with thousands and thousands of people. 
If you look at how he's negotiating his way into the presidency,  
you'll realize that he's just playing this country 
just like he played everybody else in the Trump University.
