During last night’s GOP debate, Donald Trump was called out for Trump University’s “D” rating with the Better Business Bureau, and he became rather defensive about it. But apparently, he had good reason to. Check out the document he handed the debate moderators during a commercial.
If you happened to catch the debate, Trump went back-and-forth with Megyn Kelly about the now-defunct school’s rating, and naturally, he was pretty upset because he said her information was incorrect, and he wasn’t lying. While the debate went to commercial break, Trump walked over to Brett Baier and handed him a fax that he received – from the Better Business Bureau.

Trump also took heat for a class-action lawsuit against the school, where Senator Marco Rubio repeatedly blasted the billionaire for allegedly “defrauding” those who attended. However, Trump insisted that the university had a 98 percent approval rating and that the score with the Better Business Bureau was in fact an “A,” which the fax proved.
Trump uploaded a copy of the letter he received from the consumer protection agency, and on it you can clearly see the school’s rating:
So, apparently that settles that. Unfortunately for Trump, the debate moderators never went on to correct their inaccurate statements, so the millions of people watching had no idea they were given wrong information.
Whether or not this incident harms Trump in the primaries remains to be seen; however, it’s truly in bad taste that even after being given the correct information, the moderators didn’t correct themselves. If anything, once people find out about this they’re only going to loathe Fox News even more for seemingly biased treatment against The Donald.
