ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's attorney general says Donald Trump is making wild accusations, just like others who commit fraud and get caught.

Eric Schneiderman says Trump's TV interviews Monday calling the attorney general a hack are attempts to distract the public from his fraud case against the tycoon and his Trump University.

Trump held several TV interviews to further contest the lawsuit filed Saturday. It claims the real estate mogul helped run a phony university that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars.
