A number of universities that could potentially host President Trump’s presidential library were silent when asked by The College Fix if they would host it.
The Fix previously asked several schools in February 2020 if they would host Trump’s library but none would commit. The Fix expanded its inquiries list this time but still did not receive responses.
Trump attended Fordham University for two years for his undergraduate studies before he transferred to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton business school. The Fix reached out to Fordham several times during the past week but did not hear back from them. The Catholic university in New York did not respond in 2020.
Penn’s media relations team did not respond to The Fix in 2020 or this time about potentially hosting the presidential library for Trump. President Trump’s daughter Tiffany also graduated from the Ivy League university.
Georgetown University’s media relations team also did not respond to multiple emailed requests for comment in the past several weeks on if it would host Trump’s library. Eric Trump, the president’s son, graduated from Georgetown. Tiffany Trump also has a law degree from the Catholic university in D.C. The Fix did not contact Georgetown in the initial 2020 article.
Liberty University, the evangelical institution in Virginia, did not respond to multiple emailed requests for comment in the past several weeks. Last year the university said it had not had conversations yet with President Trump’s team.
City University of New York-Queens did not respond to emailed requests for comment on if it would host a presidential library for the president born in Queens.
Palm Beach universities won’t address possibly hosting the library
Two universities near Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Club, where he now lives, would not say if they would host the library.
Palm Beach Atlantic University is a Christian university only three miles from Mar-A-Lago. Sarah Peters, a spokesperson for PBA, did not respond to two emailed requests for comment from The Fix in the past three days. The Fix asked if Trump’s team had reached out to the school about hosting the library and if it would be open to hosting it.
“I recommend that you reach out to the Trump team to get official information about their plans for the library,” Tabatha McDonald, a spokesperson for Palm Beach State College, told The Fix via email. “We are not aware of the plans.” McDonald did not answer if the school would be open to hosting the library.
The public university is a 20-minute drive from Trump’s Florida residence.
The National Archives and Records Administration did not answer a question from The Fix on if it had spoke with Trump’s team about a potential library location.
“Please contact the White House directly about the current administration’s records and future Presidential Library. Presidential records come into our legal custody only at the end of the administration,” an unsigned media relations email to The Fix said on January 7.
The government agency did not respond to a follow-up email on January 8 from The Fix asking for a point of contact in the Trump administration who could answer questions about the Trump presidential library.
The Fix also emailed a high-level official with the Trump administration but he did not respond to an emailed request for comment.
