Wagner College, a private liberal arts college in Staten Island, New York City, has revoked an honorary degree given to President Donald Trump.
The outgoing President has been shown iron fist after his supporters vandalized the Capitol and disrupted Congress during Wednesday’s certification of the Electoral College count.
He has been banned on almost all Social Media platforms, he is in the process of getting impeached and now he’s being stripped of honorary degrees.
Lehigh University, a private school in Pennsylvania also revoked same degree awarded to Trump in 1988. A committee of the Lehigh’s board of trustees voted to strip the degree on Thursday January 7, followed by the full board on Friday January 8 according to a statement from the school.
