Almost 300 members of the Yale class of 1985 have signed a letter asking their former classmate, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, to resign. 

The letter was a response to President Trump’s comments about the violent events in Charlottesville, Virginia. It claimed that Trump was sympathetic to white supremacist groups and called on Mnuchin to resign in protest.

Yale University sits on top of land once owned by Native Americans. That doesn’t seem unusual, considering pretty much all of the country does as well.

Yale University says it might revisit its decision to keep the name of a residential college named for 19th century alumnus John C. Calhoun, who was an ardent supporter of slavery.

Yale President Peter Salovey announced in April that the Ivy League university was preserving the name of Calhoun College, defying protesters who railed against it.

But Salovey announced to the campus community on Monday that he appointed a new committee to develop guidelines for proposals to remove historical names from university buildings or spaces.
