Lehigh rescinds Trump’s degree
Just days after Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, the Lehigh University Board of Trustees has rescinded the honorary degree granted to President Trump three decades ago, a move sought by many members of the school community since Trump won the White House.
What’s next? The move follows a statement by Lehigh’s president, John Simon, who Thursday said the actions of the mob was “a violent assault on the foundations of our democracy.” Simon’s statement didn’t mention Trump.
