Trump’s “college degree” website has now been suspended after it was linked to the work of a political activist who said he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The Trump University website, which was recently removed from the internet after Trump claimed he had a $50 million loan secured by the Federal Reserve, now states that “all degrees and certificates accredited by the University of Virginia are available for you to take.”
Trump, who has said that he “got his degree from Harvard,” did not provide any specific degrees.
But in a post on Twitter in November 2016, Trump wrote: “It is so sad to see how our country is being taken advantage of by unscrupulous people.
A great university should be able to offer you an education, not a degree!”
In a separate tweet, Trump also said, “Only way to solve the education crisis is to make colleges & universities tuition free for all!”
On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that Trump was still using the domain name.
“The president has used his @realDonaldTrump.com account to promote himself and his business interests in the past, but he did not use the domain to promote the university’s educational program,” a spokesperson told the newspaper.
The university has not yet provided an official statement.
