Trump University shut down sometime in 2011, but it's a popular topic again during the presidential campaign in 2016.
But what the heck was it?
First of all, not an actual university. It was a business venture started by Donald Trump, who promised to share his winning strategies in the world of high-end real estate through seminars and courses. Some participants paid as much as $35,000 to get in the game.
And what did they learn?
Well, we don't know what the $35,000 fee got you. But back in 2008, Tampa Bay Times reporter Ben Montgomery attended a free introductory course in Tampa and got a taste of Trump-style wisdom.
"Unheard of Real Estate Market Factors Have Created A PERFECT STORM Of Profit Opportunity!" the ad for the free intro class read.
Montogomery sat through the lecture, held at the Marriott Westshore and led by not-Donald Trump, and boiled down what he heard to this:
"Buy low and sell high. Hit singles, and once in a while a double will come along.
Don't do business in your own name, or you'll lose your shirt if you ever have to file for bankruptcy protection.
Use other people's money to do your deals. Find people facing foreclosure, make them a low offer, then sell for more before any money changes hands."
Flashing pictures of himself standing between a Hummer and a Mercedes, the host told attendees he had so much more to tell them. ("The only reason I'm up here is because I have a little more confidence than you. But I can give you confidence. I can give you that shot in the shoulder you need.")
But for that, they'd have to enroll in the three-day seminar, price tag: $1,495.
