Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years – having been graduated in 1968.
Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that ‘Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had’.
I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — ‘Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had’.
Dr. Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity but long before he was considered a political figure.
Dr. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told of this — that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.
