Oxford don resigns in anti-Trump protest… possibly by mistake

Image approximates story subject.

A senior academic at Britain’s top university has quit his job over allegations that a major Oxford sponsor donated funds to Donald Trump’s US presidential campaign.

Swedish Professor Bo Rothstein, who taught at the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford, resigned from his position over claims that the School’s founder, Soviet-born industrialist Leonard Blavatnik, sponsored Trump’s presidential bid.

…The spokesman for the industrialist said that neither Blavatnik nor his company, Access Industries, had ever donated any funds to Trump’s presidential campaign, suggesting that Rothstein, who taught Government and Public Policy at Oxford, may have misunderstood the entire issue and resigned by mistake.
