Donald Trump opens new argument against Obama—his education!


As he continues to mull running for president on the Republican ticket in 2012, real estate mogul Donald Trump is sticking to the outspoken attacks against President Barack Obama that has led him to the top of many preliminary polls.  Adding to his long-winded rants regarding the legitimacy of the president’s birth certificate, the billionaire businessman and reality TV star is now questioning the legitimacy of the president’s academic credentials.

In an interview with the Associated Press given on Monday, Trump accused the president of being a poor student undeserving of the Ivy League universities he attended, though he offered no proof supporting his claim.  The president’s college transcripts were not released to the public during his 2008 campaign—a move that Trump is calling just another part of a pattern of concealing information about his past.

Quite possibly, Trump is taking some of the president’s own claims and running with them.  In his memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” Obama stated he hadn’t always been the best academic student.  This little tidbit could be all Trump has to go with, but given his way of always finding a camera and microphone willing to air his every though, this might be all he needs.  He has already been making his way around the media circuit with his claims against the president’s natural citizenship, despite the fact that the state of Hawaii has released a certificate of living birth proving he was born there.  Trump and the other leaders of the “birther” movement aren’t buying it though.  He has stated he will push his new argument just as vehemently as the other, as he travels to the primary states of New Hampshire and Nevada this week.

He said he will have a final decision about whether or not he is running by mid-June.

Obama graduated with a degree in political science from Columbia University in 1983, after which he attended Harvard Law School, became president of the Harvard Law Review and graduated magna cum laude in 1991.
