Accepting the title of President of the United States is not only an honor, but is also a great responsibility. In the past, only one U.S. president chose to give up that responsibility and resign from office. The question of whether Donald Trump would resign for any reason, if elected as president, may be answered by taking a close look at how he responded to what is happening on the campus of the University of Missouri right now.
Trump: Mizzou protests are ‘disgusting’ https://t.co/IeSzzQ89ol

Western Journalism’s ongoing reporting of the situation at the University of Missouri has already uncovered disturbing findings. WJ reported that two faculty members were seen quelling free speech and freedom of the press on campus and strong-arming reporters and video journalists away from covering the protests.
WJ also reported that the main leader of the Concerned Student 1950 group, while condemning “white privilege,” grew up with a silver spoon in his own mouth–his own family was worth several millions of dollars. The group has ties to the Black Lives Matter movement, and the group staged a hunger strike to oust the white university president, Tim Wolfe. The group called themselves “revolutionaries.” Their efforts led to the resignations of the university president and chancellor.
Trump weighed in Thursday on the protests in an interview with FOX Business. “I think it’s disgusting. I think it’s disgusting. I think the two people who resigned are weak, ineffective people. I think that when they resigned, they set something in motion that’s going to be a disaster for the next long period of time. They were weak, ineffective people. How we hire people like that…Trump should’ve been the chancellor of that university. Believe me. There would’ve been no resignations.”
