Liberty Is Now The Only University To Not Rescind Donald Trump's Honorary Degrees

Michael T. Nietzel

Donald Trump has been granted five honorary degrees in his lifetime - from Lehigh University in 1988, from Wagner College in 2004, from Robert Gordon University in Scotland in 2010, and from Liberty University, which granted honorary degrees to Mr. Trump on two occasions - 2012 and 2017.

But as of today, only one of those institutions- Liberty University - has not revoked the honorary degrees originally granted to Mr. Trump.

Robert Gordon rescinded the degree it awarded in 2015, after determining that Trump had “made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the ethos and values of the university.”

Yesterday, both Lehigh and Wagner followed suit, after the storming and siege at the nation’s Capitol on Wednesday which followed a speech by the president that many saw as inciting the violence. In his remarks to the crowd, Trump called the election he lost “this egregious assault on our democracy.” He then urged his supporters to “walk down to the Capitol. We are going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we are probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them — because you will never take back our country with weakness.”

That leaves Liberty.
