Trump: How did Obama get into the Ivy League?

Donald Trump on Monday suggested he had broadened the scope of his investigation regarding President Obama's background, arguing that - in addition to making inquiries into Mr. Obama's citizenship - he was "looking into" the president's college career. In an interview with the Associated Press, Trump alleged that Mr. Obama had been "a terrible student," and wondered how he could have been accepted to prestigious schools like Columbia and Harvard Universities.

"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible," Trump told the AP. "How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard? I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."

Mr. Obama received an undergraduate degree from Columbia University in 1983. (He transferred from Occidental College in 1981.) He then got his Juris doctorate from Harvard Law School, where he graduated magna cum laude in 1991.

Trump provided no evidence of Mr. Obama's "terrible" marks, but did offer the fact that "I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can't get into Harvard."

"We don't know a thing about this guy," Trump said. "There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our president."

Commentary: Trump takes another shot at Obama

Trump, who says he is seriously considering a bid for the GOP presidential nomination, has made waves in recent weeks by reviving the thoroughly-debunked "birther" claim that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States.

The business magnate has also stepped up criticism of Democrats on policy-related issues.

In a video recently posted to his YouTube page, Trump accused Democrats of attempting to lead Republicans "into a trap" in regard to certain entitlement programs.

"Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security must be saved," said Trump, in one of his weekly video chats. "The Republicans cannot be led into a trap by the Democrats, and that's what happening. They must be saved....We must take care of our senior citizens, we can't let anything happen, anything, negative to our senior citizens. Medicare we have to take care of you."

In 1998, according to two sources familiar with the gift, [New York real estate magnate Charles Kushner] pledged $2.5 million to Harvard, to be paid in annual installments of $250,000....

At the time of the pledge, Kushner's older son, Jared, was was starting the college admissions process at the Frisch School, a Jewish high school in Paramus, N.J. A senior in 1998-99, Jared was not in the school's highest academic track in all courses, and his test scores were well below Ivy League standards. Frisch officials were surprised when he applied to Harvard—and dismayed when he was admitted.

"There was no way anybody in the administrative office of the school thought he would on the merits get into Harvard," a former school official told me. "His GPA did not warrant it, has SAT scores did not warrant it. We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. Then lo and behold, Jared was accepted."

One can only imagine what he thinks of his son-in-law then.
