Trump University was a company owned by the Trump Organisation that provided a real estate training programme until it was closed in 2010. In 2018, the US Federal Court approved a $25 million settlement between President Trump and former students who have not been able to graduate.
Terminator star and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has used a mock Trump University doctorate while filming a virtual address to 2020 graduates.
“You are celebrating that journey today, not just a piece of paper that you hang on the wall”, Schwarzneger told the graduates in a video shared on Instagram. “This is nothing”, he said, showing a fake Trump university diploma.
Schwarzenegger also advised young people to perceive the current COVID-19 pandemic as just one of the many obstacles they are going to face in their lives, while also referring to the example of his heart surgery.
“The reason why I’m telling you all this is because no matter how successful you are, life will throw obstacles in your path, like it was with my heart surgery or like with your graduation now”, he said.
Due to the coronavirus-induced quarantine measures, college graduates this year have been locked up in their homes and have been unable to receive their diplomas at live, in-person ceremonies.
