"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night took a "Closer Look" at presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump's fraudulent Trump University.

"Trump University was founded in 2005, promising to teach people how to make money off real estate," Meyers explained. "But, as the Washington Post reported, it wasn't a university or even a school; it was just 'a series of seminars held in hotel ballrooms across the country.'"

Meyers outlined Trump's method of rhetorically dodging the allegations that his University was a scam by calling the judge's Mexican heritage an "inherent conflict of interest" in presiding over the case.

"Now to be clear, claiming that someone is not able to do their job because of their race is, by definition, racism," Meyers said. "Period."
