Trump takes credit for U. Annual Giving record

President Trump noted on Twitter today that the University’s Annual Giving campaign has had its most successful year yet. He also appeared to take some credit for alumni donations through this campaign, and promised there was “MUCH MORE TO COME!!”

U. alumnus awarded Purple Heart

On Thursday, Dec. 21, President Trump presented U.S. Army First Lieutenant Victor Prato ’15 with the Purple Heart. Trump visited Prato at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., where Prato is receiving treatment for his injuries. Prato, an airborne engineer, was seriously injured on Monday, Nov. 13, while deployed in Afghanistan when his convoy was struck by an improvised explosive device. He has been serving in the U.S. Army for two years, and served as a cadet in Princeton’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program.

Letter from the Editors: We invite you to share your opinions

Letter from the Editors: Protect our students

Trump may end DACA as early as Sept. 1. We urge Trump not to end DACA without a suitable, compassionate, and permanent replacement and the University to bring DACA students back to campus before the Sept. 5 deadline imposed by the group of attorneys general who have threatened to sue the Trump administration. Let’s live up to our motto — “Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity.”
