NEWARK, N.J. — Hillary Clinton debuted a new attack line against Donald Trump at a Wednesday campaign stop in Newark, N.J., saying the real estate mogul scammed hard-working Americans and is a “fraud.”
Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, took aim at Trump University. Documents released Tuesday as part of an ongoing court case highlighted Trump University’s marketing strategy, which critics like Clinton labeled as manipulative.

Clinton deployed stronger language Wednesday than she recently had against Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. She accused him of trying to “scam” America again with his campaign. “This is just more evidence that Donald Trump himself is a fraud,” she said.
