President Donald J. Trump was furious when he found out Harvard University received a $9 million loan through the COVID-19 small business stimulus package and says he wants the university to give it back.
“Harvard should give back the money now. Their whole “endowment” system should be looked at,” he said. Trump issued a veiled threat that if the school does not give the money back, he and his administration will get it back elsewhere. Harvard receives a $40 million endowment from the government. “”I want Harvard to pay the money back, okay? If they won’t do that, then we won’t do something else.”
Do you agree with the President?
