Delaware State University has denied that Joe Biden has ever been a student there — after the presidential candidate’s claim that he “got started” at the historically black college. The Democrat nominee made his claim while praising historically black colleges and universities during a town hall event last October before the South Carolina Democratic primary.
Biden stated, “I got started out of a HBCU, Delaware State…Now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State. They’re my folks,” he told the pupils to chuckles. Carlos Holmes, the college’s director of news service, told the Washington Times that Biden did not attend the school.
Instead, he was only a commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and 2016, which is far from the start of his political career, being a senator for Delaware since 1973.
