Biden's claim he 'got started' at HBCU Delaware State University is denied by the school

DELAWARE State University said on Friday that Joe Biden was never a student of the historically black college after the presidential hopeful claimed he “got started” at the university.

Biden made the claim during a town hall event with students at Wilson High School last October before the South Carolina Democratic primary.

“I got started out of a HBCU, Delaware State,” Biden said.

He continued: “Now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State. They’re my folks.”

But Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, told The Washington Times that “Vice President Biden did not attend DSU.”

“However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and [2016], and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree,” he said by email.
