Trump's History of Corruption: He Paid Someone to Take His SAT

U.S. President Donald J. Trump cheated on his SAT, according to a coming book by his niece.

Mary Trump wrote in her tell-all, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," set to be published next week, that Trump paid a proxy to take the SAT for him, according to The New York Times, which obtained a copy of the book and reported on the passage Tuesday.

"The high score the proxy earned for him, Ms. Trump adds, helped the young Mr. Trump to later gain admittance as an undergraduate to the University of Pennsylvania's prestigious Wharton business school," The Times reported.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews denied the allegation that Trump cheated on his SAT. 

"Mary Trump and her book's publisher may claim to be acting in the public interest, but this book is clearly in the author's own financial self-interest. President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people – why speak out now?" Matthews wrote in an email to Insider. 

"Also, the absurd SAT allegation is completely false."

Three of Trump's children went to Penn, with Don Jr. graduating in 2000, Ivanka in 2004, and Tiffany in 2016.

Though in 2011 he hounded President Barack Obama for not turning over his college transcripts, Trump has never revealed any similar information about his time at Wharton, where he has claimed he graduated first in his class.

Penn's student newspaper, The Daily Pennsylvanian, published a list of 56 students who were on the dean's list in 1968, the year Trump graduated, but his name was not listed.

Trump has also described his time at Wharton as "super genius stuff."

Last summer, Penn instituted a policy of revoking degrees if a graduate is found to have provided false information in an admission application, cheated on an exam, or tampered with records, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported.
