Independent auditor: Trump has made it impossible for students defrauded by predatory diploma mills to get their loans cancelled

The US Department of Education's Inspector General has released a report saying that the DoE has stopped cancelling the debts of students who were defrauded by fake universities.

This occurred under the leadership of Ponzi-baroness Betsy DeVos, who says that cancelling these debts is too expensive.

Trump himself operated a predatory diploma mill called "Trump University," which had to pay out $25,000,000 to students it defrauded.

According to the Inspector General's report, the Education Department under Ms DeVos has received 25,991 debt cancellation claims, denying two and approving none.

During Mr Obama's final months in office, from 1 July 2016 to Mr Trump's inauguration in January 2017, the Education Department received 46,274 claims, approving 27,986 and denying none.
