Donald Trump fired back at accusations on Monday that his Trump University is a scam.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit over the weekend, suing Trump and the university for $40 million.
The lawsuit claims Trump ran a program that promised to make students real estate experts, but instead offered mostly useless and expensive seminars.
Schneiderman also says the real estate mogul failed to give apprenticeships to students, who paid up to $35,000 for the program.
Trump denies the charges and says the school has a 98 percent approval rating from students.
In a statement to NY1, a Trump spokesperson attacked Schneiderman, saying, "The action has no merit and is nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt to deflect from his weak job performance."
Schneiderman followed up by saying, "Prosecutors are all used to persons who commit fraud making wild accusations when they're caught. This is just an effort to distract from the substance of the case."
