California college drops ‘Trump’ from impeachment class name

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State University is dropping President Donald Trump’s name from the title of a class after public criticism.

The name of the course? “Trump: Impeachment, Removal or Conviction?”

The university announced Wednesday that it was dropping Trump’s name from the title of the one-unit weekend class.

The course, which begins Friday, covers the history, procedures and constitutional grounds for removing presidents as well as presidential immunity. It also reviews all 19 U.S. presidents who faced potential impeachment, including Richard Nixon, who resigned before he could face such proceedings.

It’s offered to the public through the university’s extended studies program.

The university says the course isn’t state-funded and isn’t required for graduation.
