Wagner College Revokes Honorary Degree Awarded to Donald Trump? | After the 2020 US Presidential Election which ended with Joe Biden winning more votes than Donald Trump, it seems Trump is having a lot of though times accepting that he was defeated. He instead insists that he was cheated and that he will take his case to court.
Since then a lot of things are not going his way. Things are getting even worse but Trump is not ready to stop either. Is this the beginning of 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 the former, President Donald Trump. This came 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.
