2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s lies were exposed by his hometown University after he claimed he was a student at Delaware State University, according to Fox News.
Biden alleged that he jumpstarted his academic career at the University, however, according to a new report in The Washington Times, the historically Black college refutes Biden’s claims.
The director of news service for Delaware State, Carlos Holmes confirmed that Biden’s claim was erroneous.
“Vice President Biden did not attend DSU,” Holmes said earlier last week.
“However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and , and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree.”
“I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State — now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State,” Biden told the crowd, as shown on video.
“They’re my folks.”
Biden had alleged the claims back in 2019 at a town hall event held at the historic Wilson High School in Florence, which was founded in 1866 by the Freedmen’s Bureau for Black children seeking an education.
According to reports, the Biden-Harris campaign named Delaware State University President Tony Allen — formerly a speechwriter in Biden’s Senate office — to its transition team advisory council.
