WASHINGTON – The Better Business Bureau is disputing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claims about its ratings of his Trump University.
Trump University’s rating with the organization was a source of dispute during last week’s Republican debate.
Trump claimed the group had given his business an A+. But the moderator responded that it was a D-.
Trump then said he received a fax mid-debate from the BBB that proved the score was later elevated.
Claire Rosenzweig, head of the BBB’s Metro New York division, said Tuesday that the group did not send the fax. She said Trump U, which is not accredited by BBB, did receive a D- in 2010 due to customer complaints.
She said its grade improved when the complaints stopped as the company wound down its business in 2014.
