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Just days after Wednesday’s insurrecti­on at the U.S. Capitol, the Lehigh University Board of Trustees has rescinded the honorary degree granted to President Trump three decades ago, a move sought by many members of the school community since Trump won the White House.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.
