WASHINGTON: A military academy that Donald Trump attended as a teenager concealed his academic records in 2011 in response to pressure from Trump allies, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The New York Military Academy came under such pressure after Trump challenged then president Barack Obama to release his own academic records, with Trump saying he was surprised such a “terrible student” got into Ivy League Schools.
Evan Jones, the headmaster of the military academy at the time, told the Post that the superintendent of the private school “came to me in a panic because he had been accosted by prominent, wealthy alumni of the school who was Mr. Trump’s friends” and wanted to keep his academic records secret. Trump has consistently boasted he was a superb student throughout his youth.
