The attack came after a professor at the university, Carol Christine Fair, was suspended from Twitter over a post savaging "entitled white men" on the Senate Judiciary Committee for their treatment of Christine Blasey Ford, one of three women who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon that Fair was an "embarrassment" to the school, echoing calls from other conservatives, including former Rep.

"I have always been the biggest advocate of my alma mater @Georgetown. I also believe in free speech. With that said, @CChristineFair is an absolute embarrassment to herself and this great institution," Trump wrote Wednesday.
"She is a terrible representative for our school," he added.

Fair was suspended from Twitter earlier in the day over the tweet, which went on to call for the castration of white male senators who have publicly questioned Ford's account of her alleged assault at Kavanaugh's hands.
“Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” she wrote. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
“I do NOT and NEVER have condoned violence,” Fair wrote in a follow-up tweet before her suspension, according to Fox News. “My tweet, as I have explained, was an attempt to make YOU as UNCOMFORTABLE as I am using the language of the abuse I receive by the hundreds.”
The university's president, John DeGioia, said in a statement Tuesday that Georgetown is "deeply committed" to an atmosphere free of bias on campus.
"While the speech of our faculty members is protected, we are deeply committed to having our classrooms and interactions with students be free of bias and geared toward respectful dialogue. We take seriously our obligation to provide welcoming spaces for all students to learn," DeGioia said.
"If comments made by faculty members are determined to substantially affect their teaching, research, or University service, we will address them through established University procedures outlined in our Georgetown University Faculty Handbook," he added, not addressing the specific incident further.
