President Trump on Wednesday cited his Ivy League education in pushing back at the notion that he is an uncivil leader. 

“You know people don’t understand, I went to an Ivy League college,” he told reporters at the White House. “I was a nice student. I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person.”
Trump graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. 
Trump blamed the media for making him look “more uncivil than I am.”
{mosads}“I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person,” he said. 
In the past two weeks, Trump has feuded with a Gold Star widow who was offended by his comments during a condolence call after her husband was killed in Niger.  
He has also sparred with Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who offered blistering criticism of the president’s conduct. 
Corker said Trump’s inability to tell the truth has “debased the country.”
Without naming the president, Flake called his conduct “reckless, outrageous and undignified” in a floor speech announcing his retirement. 
Trump has ripped both Flake and Corker, saying he thought the former was a Democrat and making fun of the latter’s short stature.
