College revokes Honorary Degree awarded to 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;
