Way back in 1968, presidential candidate Donald Trump graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business with a degree in economics. But apparently, many of his classmates don’t remember him.
The NY Daily News recently caught up with several of Trump’s Wharton classmates to get their thoughts on the man himself, only they didn't have very many to speak of:
“He was not known on campus for any reason at all,” Wharton classmate Nancy Hano said.
“I was one of only five or seven girls in the whole school. Only the smart guys would sit next to the girls because they knew the girls were bright. We never knew about him,” said Hano, now 68 and living in Riverdale in the Bronx.
“I have no memory of him whatsoever,” Stanton Koppel, another Wharton classmate, said.
“No one remembers him,” another former classmate, Dennis Wilen, said Tuesday.
Not only that, but Trump’s former classmates claim that Trump was not the top-ranking student in his class, as often has been claimed. In fact, one classmate says there wasn’t even a ranking to determine that apparent fact:
“And there was no ranking,” she said. “If he tries to claim he was first in the class, he should show his transcript.”
“If he’s so proud of his accomplishments in school, he should back up his claims. Let’s see the record,” Koppel said.
“I think he’s a racist blowhard,” Wilen said Tuesday. “And if you have to rely on something you did in the ’60s to validate what you’re saying today, you’ve lost your way.”
Most recently, Trump was involved in a dust-up with Sen. John McCain, who Trump says is “not a war hero” because “he was captured” and Trump only likes “people who weren’t captured.”
