President Donald Trump likes to brag about having gone to the Wharton School of Finance, a school known for their elite MBA program. As it turns out, however, Trump never got an MBA from the school.

In April 2016, while Trump was still duking it out for the Republican nomination, the Associated Press reported on Trump’s “complicated relationship” with Wharton. Though he regularly brought up the school, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania, Trump never received his master’s degree from Wharton School of business. In fact, his undergraduate degree isn’t even in business–it’s a bachelor of science in economics.

Earlier this week, Vanity Fair‘s Kurt Eichenwald resurrected Trump’s Wharton deception when the president slipped up and said “I went to the best colleges, or college.”

As Eichenwald pointed out on Twitter, Trump did indeed go to the famed institution, but only after transferring there from Fordham University, located in New York City. He “never made dean’s list,” though he claims to have graduated first in his class.

Wharton’s graduate business program is “the most highly respected” in the US, and mentions of “Wharton” typically denote that program. Trump, Eichenwald said, “has been tricking people” into believing he has an MBA from the revered school.

“Trump has no MBA,” Eichenwald tweeted. “He can’t read a balance sheet.”

A secretive conservative group is bankrolling the confirmation battles for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominees, but it's not clear who funds that activity.

The right-wing Judicial Crisis Network has spent $27 million in dark money to block President Barack Obama’s 2016 Supreme Court nominee, only to turn around and spend millions ushering Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh through their confirmation process, reported The Daily Poster.

The shadowy organization, originally founded in 2004 to promote President George W. Bush's judicial nominees, received $15.9 million from a single donor between July 2018 and June 2019, when the group was promoting Kavanaugh's controversial nomination.

According to Dahlstrom, his wife contracted the novel coronavirus over the summer and quickly grew very ill and was put on a respirator within days of first exhibiting symptoms.

Kayleigh McEnany: DOJ targeting New York Times over Trump tax leak ‘is a fair investigation to have’

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday said that she supported a "criminal investigation" into The New York Times for publishing details of President Donald Trump's tax information.

During an interview on Fox News, host Sandra Smith asked McEnany about Rep. Kevin Brady's (R-TX) call for the Department of Justice to open an investigation into the paper's reporting.

"The president hasn't pressed for that [investigation] but, look, that is a fair investigation to have," McEnany replied. "We've seen the politicization of taxes before. We've seen the IRS targeting Tea Party groups and its an unacceptable proposition for that to happen."
