Wagner College, a non-public school in the New York district of Staten Island has disavowed a privileged degree given to President Donald Trump.
This is coming after Lehigh University, a tuition based school in Pennsylvania likewise renounced same degree granted to Trump in 1988.
People including bureau secretaries and establishments have separated themselves from Trump since his allies vandalized the Capitol and upset Congress during Wednesday’s affirmation of the Electoral College check. A panel of the Lehigh’s leading group of trustees casted a ballot to strip the degree on Thursday January 7, trailed by the full board on Friday January 8 as indicated by an assertion from the school
Wagner’s trustees then again, met in a unique meeting to survey the privileged degree allowed to Trump in 2004 and casted a ballot to revoke it. An assertion shared by the school read;
“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 that year, 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.
Trump has also been awarded degrees from Liberty University, the school whose commencement he spoke at in 2017, and Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, which rescinded the degree in 2015 amid a uproar over Trump’s comments about banning Muslims from entering the U.S.
