Opinion | Trump University, Now With Tax Money

As if the federal bureaucracy didn’t have enough to do, Donald Trump says that in a second term he’d create a new tuition-free online university to “compete directly” for college students. It would award bachelor’s degree equivalents “that the U.S. government and all federal contractors will henceforth recognize.” Step right up to enroll in Trump University 2.0.

Mr. Trump unveiled the idea recently in a video on Truth Social, and the plan includes all of the careful policy thinking typical of a video on Truth Social. “Whether you want lectures on ancient histories, or an introduction to financial accounting, or training in a skilled trade,” Mr. Trump said, “the goal will be to deliver it and get it done properly, using study groups, mentors, industry partnerships, and the latest breakthrough in computing.”
