Hillary Clinton’s campaign is out with a new ad promoting Trump University.
Well, sort of.

The fake video, complete with a narrating voice reminiscent of energized television informercials, details the “three easy steps” people can take to having the same wealth as Donald Trump.
The ad goes through each step: 1. Sign up at Trump University. 2. Pay for Trump University … “at the amazing price of everything you have!” And as the narrator comes to step three, the ad says “there is no step three. You won’t learn anything. It’s that easy!”
Trump University — a real estate seminar business started by Trump — is the subject of two class-action lawsuits, and a $40 million lawsuit from New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, POLITICO previously reported.
The nearly minute-and-a-half spot hits Trump for his wealth multiples times.
The ad starts with the following message in bright yellow lettering: “Donald Trump is world famous … for making a fortune … for being famous … for having a fortune.”
It concludes by saying “don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to give your hard-earned money to a ‘billionaire.’”
The video also includes quotes from recent articles and written testimonies, as well as interviews with those knowledgeable about the lawsuits against Trump University.
Trump University, and the lawsuits against it, has been a target throughout the 2016 campaign season, but recently has been under more scrutiny with Trump’s remarks about the judge overseeing one of the trials.
Trump has said U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel is “very biased” and “unfair,” and has suggested he can’t properly make a ruling in the case because of his Mexican heritage.
