Can an illiterate person become President of the United States? by Tony Garcia

Answer by Tony Garcia:

Illiteracy is not limited to one’s inability to read or write; it can also define one’s lack of knowledge in specific areas.(1) Possessing a dearth of knowledge—for example, in geopolitics—does not in and of itself preclude one from higher office. Surrounding oneself with erudite people, though, can show more leadership than having an advanced college degree. Just look at President John Kennedy’s senior advisors.
