Trump says he’ll ask Harvard to return $8.7M coronavirus relief money

Trump accused Harvard University of ’taking’ money from the federal government as part of the Paycheck Protection Program under the CARES Act, intended to benefit small businesses and said he will be asking that they pay it back. Harvard on Tuesday pushed back on the demand, saying the money it accepted would go toward assisting students financially impacted by the outbreak.

Helping students was not what the money was for. Pay your people out of your multi billion dollar endowment, a-holes.

So let be get this straight, they took a loan for small businesses, knowing that it wasn't meant for them, and now that they got caught and called out, they are trying to make it some sort of virtuous deed? Who initially signed off on them getting that money? Harvard is literally the last place that needs financial assistance, especially during a pandemic. The student that go there mostly come from very wealthy families and backgrounds. Not to mention the backdoor deals that have been recently exposed. As a student who payed off his debts, I think them keeping it for any reason is wrong.

Socialist=communist. Of course they took it even with 100s of billions in their bank account. That's what entitled communist do; their motto is "What's yours is mine".

I don't think it works that way. Harvard law professors should know better.
