Skip to comments.Trump: Obama a "Terrible Student" Not Good Enough for Harvard
Posted on 04/25/2011 3:17:44 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Manhattan real estate mogul Donald Trump suggested in an interview Monday that President Barack Obama had been a poor student who did not deserve to be admitted to the Ivy League universities he attended. Trump, who is mulling a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, offered no proof for his claim but said he would continue to press the matter as he has the legitimacy of the president's birth certificate.
"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?" Trump said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."
Obama graduated from Columbia University in New York in 1983 with a degree in political science after transferring from Occidental College in California. He went on to Harvard Law School, where he graduated magna cum laude 1991 and was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review.

Trump definately has something cooking.
Give ‘Em Hell, Donald!
Keep it up Mr. Trump, America will owe you a debt of gratitude.
I don’t believe it!
Obama has such a dedicated work ethic. NOT!
If he studied as much as he has worked as POTUS then
he could not have done very well.
Now's the time to start letting bits and pieces of information out. Like transcripts.
“I heard he was a terrible student, terrible.”
He heard it? He already has the records....
He’s got a point. After all, you don’t even have to walk through the door to get your Gentlemans “C”.
This is brilliant - drip drip drip drip.
That ass can come over to my house and debate anything. I will spot him two(2) years of Presidency. What a fool America has provided.
I agree with Trump. I’m not pleased with Ryan’s budget proposal either. Its not going to do the job. We don’t have 10 years. We are lucky if we make it to the 2012 elections.
Wouldn't that be a matter of public record???
Man,I’m getting to where I like this guy. Warts and all, at least SOMEONE has the balls to say what many of us are thinking (and not playing so damn nice with these Marxists).
Well done Donald! Keep punching! Hard!
And be on the look out for that scumbag Axelrod trying to get your divorce records unsealed
These two dumb butt colleges would accept any dumb butt turd.
That is where the next attack comes. What about it Harvard.........Gonna grab the float OBAMA
Keep it up Donald, most of us are loving it........
obama has lowered the bar for what it takes to be President.
Mr. Trump knows this and smells blood in the water....
Yes, they would, especially $20 MILLION!
In the comments on the linked page several people state that he graduated from Harvard Law Magna Cum Laude. Where is any evidence of that?
How did he get into Harvard? Oh you mean the school that Barney Frank, Jamie Gorelick, Al Gore, and Ted Kennedy went to.
Have you ever seen the video about Obama with Percey Sutton on youtube?
Another article that refers to the “Certification of Live Birth” document as the Certificate of Live Birth. They are not the same thing. The media mix it up on purpose I think to confuse the issue.
There is no Certificate of Live Birth
Don’t you know the law? A Democrat doesn’t need any evidence.
From everything we’ve seen of his student and paltry professional writing, Obama could hardly have earned magna cum laude from HLS on his own. I imagine he had someone, whether school supplied or otherwise, editing his papers, at least.
Given the fact that a good grade school student could answer a question better than the sans-teleprompter Obamaloon, I’d tend to think that Trump was right.
The libs are gonna sooner or later have to accept the terrible, but obvious fact that - even though Bush was a terrible speaker - he was smarter than the loon.
God how I hope he embarrasses the snot out of this progressive tool — and ALL of his followers to boot.
Go Trump Go!!!!
With no records made public how the heck does this reporter know he graduated magna cum laude?
Donald is my hero.
It's wise to question any statement that begins "I heard..."
Obama’s SSN filed by his American refugee resettlement organization headquartered in CT. UNITED WAY.
Man. Donald jumped from doubting his qualifications to be POTUS, to suggesting he lacks intelligence and is an unqualified empty suit.
Meanwhile, Obama and the media can’t lay a glove on him. ROTFL!!!
It would be smart to let Obama rise to the bait as it is now presented. Let him make his case, then let out the tidbits to refute his assertions.
Gotcha’ is a lot more fun that way.
Obama couldn’t even pass a GED.
In this case one would be wise to question the ‘I heard’ statement as well as the cause of the statement.
WFB must be turning over...
Even without seeing the academic records, it’s logical to deduce that the grades are poor. If the grades were good, we’d know all about it, right?
I’m waiting for all those Occidental and Columbia profs to come forward and let us know how fantastic a student Obama was...
I don’t expect it’s crazy at all. I thoroughly expect The Donald has been given the files from the Clintons’ private investigators. Trump was a big Hillary backer in ‘08 and he is close to both the Clintons and Rahm Emanuel and his brother.
You hit the nail in the head. None of the Republicans in the mix stand up for us, yet they expect our vote.
Where the heck have Huck and Romney been while the country has gone to hell?
They are too scared of the media to come out and oppose the president.
