Another college revokes Honorary Degree awarded to Trump

Oh dear.. it;s beginning to look like a bad end for Trump.

A private school in the New York borough of Staten Island, Wagner College has revoked an honorary degree given to President Donald Trump.

This is coming after Lehigh University, a private school in Pennsylvania also revoked the same degree awarded to Trump in 1988.

Individuals including cabinet secretaries and institutions have distanced themselves from Trump since his supporters vandalized the Capitol and disrupted Congress during Wednesday’s certification of the Electoral College count.

According to a statement from the school, a committee of Lehigh’s board of trustees voted to strip the degree on Thursday January 7, followed by the full board on Friday, January 8.

Wagner’s trustees, on the other hand, met in a special session to review the honorary degree granted to Trump in 2004 and voted to rescind it.

The school disclosed the new development on social media, it wrote;

“The Wagner College Board of Trustees met in a special session to review the honorary degree granted to Donald J. Trump in 2004. Today, the board voted to rescind that degree.”

Trump spoke at the school’s graduation in 2004 and appeared at the school with First Lady Melania Trump who was his fiancee at that time. The president was at the height of his fame with the first season of “The Apprentice” and was well-received.
