(CAMPUS REFORM) — A Harvard University professor says universities should not give “respect or deference” to Trump administration officials.

Harvard professor Dani Rodrik, in an op-ed for the Boston Globe, calls Trump’s “shameful presidency” a “stain” universities should reject honoring, declaring that administration officials “should not be accorded the degree of respect or deference that their seniority and government positions would normally merit.”

While Rodrik concedes that universities should “be open to diverse viewpoints,” he has an issue with “normalizing and legitimizing … an odious presidency.”
