Better Business Bureau explains how Trump University briefly achieved an A+ rating
The BBB is now joining the din of arguments surrounding Trump University "in response to a number of inaccurate reports that continue to be repeated," it said in a statement on Tuesday.The BBB's statement comes after the Republican presidential frontrunner launched his own attacks on critics of Trump U. He lauded Trump U as a successful enterprise that received strong ratings from the BBB, a nonprofit that rates businesses for consumers.
On Tuesday, The BBB explained that Trump U has fluctuated as low as a D- in 2010 to an A+ in 2015. However, the organization explains that that swing was a function of a decrease in complaints as Trump U was no longer in business."As the company appeared to be winding down, after 2013, no new complaints were reported," the statement read. "Complaints over three years old automatically rolled off of the Business Review, according to BBB policy. As a result, over time, Trump University's BBB rating went to an A in July 2014 and then to an A+ in January 2015."
