President Trump's niece Mary L. Trump alleges in her new tell-all book that her uncle paid a friend to take a college admissions test more than 50 years ago so he could gain acceptance into the undergraduate business school at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. However, a new video from the wife of the now-deceased friend tells a very different story.

"My late husband Joe Shapiro passed away 21 years ago. He was a man of great integrity, honesty; he was a hard worker. He was literally the smartest person I ever met," Shriver began. "He went to University of Pennsyvlania, member of the class of 1968. It was while he was at University of Pennsylvania where he met Donald Trump. They became friends; they loved the sport of golf. They shared the same hometown of New York City; they shared the same campus. They stayed in a little bit of touch through the years."
She continued: "But obviously Joe's not here to defend himself and say what happened, but I just want to recollect what he told me about where he met Mr. Trump. And I want to thank all of Joe's close friends and his sister Beth for our talks in the past 24 hours about what an upstanding, outstanding man Joe Shapiro was."
"He always did the right thing and that's why this hurts," Pam Shriver the ESPN analyst and widow of Joe Shapiro who says if this is the man referenced in Mary Trump's book re SAT and Trump it's not true https://t.co/5YEXGs3cCm— John Santucci (@Santucci) July 8, 2020
Mary Trump accused Pres. Trump of cheating on this college exams with his friend Joe Shapiro. His widow says that this is false. The problem is that Shapiro is dead and you can defame the dead. Not so, however, the living if her uncle decides to sue. https://t.co/6FUiC4LU8V— Jonathan Turley (@JonathanTurley) July 9, 2020
