President Trump collected another honorary doctorate Saturday, bringing his total back up to four. The latest award, from Liberty University, fills a void left by the revocation of a degree from Robert Gordon University in Scotland in 2015.

Robert Gordon had bestowed an honorary doctorate of business administration in 2010 — a controversial move at the time because the Aberdeen community where the university is located was divided over a Trump-led golf course project.

But after Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” in December 2015, the university promptly withdrew the degree.
