School attended by Trump says it concealed his grades

A military academy that Donald Trump attended as a teenager concealed his academic records in 2011 in response to pressure from Trump allies, a leading daily from US reported. The New York Military Academy came under such pressure after Trump challenged then president Barack Obama to release his own academic records, with Trump saying he was surprised such a “terrible student” got into Ivy League Schools.

Evan Jones, the headmaster of the military academy at the time, is reported to have said that the superintendent of the private school “came to me in a panic because he had been accosted by prominent, wealthy alumni of the school who were Mr Trump’s friends” and wanted to keep his academic records secret. Trump has consistently boasted he was a superb student throughout his youth.

The school’s director, at the time, Jeffrey Coverdale, said that he rejected a request from members of the school’s board of trustees to hand over Trump’s records to them. “I moved them elsewhere on campus where they could not be released. It’s the only time I ever moved an alumnus’s records,” Coverdale is reported to have said.
