2 private institutions revoked Trump's honorary degree following the Capitol siege


Two private institutions revoked Trump's honorary degree following the Capitol siege
BULLET POINTS ::
** Lehigh University and Wagner College both announced on Friday that they would revoke President Donald Trump's honorary degrees.
** Trump received the honorary degree from Lehigh in 1988 after speaking at the institution's commencement ceremony. He received a degree from Wagner in 2004.
** Both Lehigh and Wagner cited the violence that rose out of the attempted coup at the US Capitol on Wednesday as reasons for revocation.
Two educational institutions announced that they are revoking their honorary degrees given to President Donald Trump in light of the riots at the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Board of trustees "voted to rescind and revoke the honorary degree granted to Donald J. Trump in 1988," a statement from the Lehigh University account on Twitter reads.

3. Probably too late.

He probably doesn't care. As long as he has the framed diplomas, he will continue to display them along with his fake magazine covers.
