Trump Lied About Graduating “Top Of Class” From University
President Donald Trump has been caught at another lie, this time concerning his performance at Pennsylvania University’s Wharton School of Business. Throughout his election campaign, Trump had maintained that he was “very smart” and had graduated from the prestigious school at the top of his class.
According to The Daily Pennsylvanian, academic records prove that Trump’s claims were false. To back their findings, reporters from the newspaper also spoke to former classmates of the real estate mogul.
In their article, The Daily Pennsylvanian said that all of their interviews disputed the president’s claim of graduating as a top student. The paper also published the Dean’s List of 1968, Trump’s graduation year. The president was not among the 56 names listed there.
Moreover, Trump’s name is absent from a program of the 1968 commencement ceremony, which named “20 Wharton award and prize recipients, 15 cum laude recipients, four magna cum laude recipients and two summa cum laude recipients for the Class of 1968. Trump’s name appears nowhere on those lists.”
Classmates of Trump’s are quoted saying that he didn’t study much and was rarely seen mingling with other students. According to alumni Louis Calomaris, Trump “didn’t seem to care about being prepared” whenever he showed up for study sessions.
