Trump questions Obama's Ivy League education

Trump questions Obama's Ivy League education
Billionaire and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump questioned how US President Barack Obama, who he argued was a terrible student, was accepted to Columbia University and Harvard Law.

Trump continues his barrage of attacks, from birtherism to academics.

"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible," Trump told 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.”

"I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can't get into Harvard,” he added.

The billionaire recently financed private detectives on a trip to Hawaii to investigate Obama’s birth and is now looking into his educational records.

"We don't know a thing about this guy," he remarked. "There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our President."

According to common knowledge and school verifications, Obama initially attended Occidental College, but later transferred to Columbia University in 1981. He later went on to complete Law school at Harvard where he served as the editor for the Law Review and graduated magna cum laude in 1991.
