Biden: Don’t Listen To Cynics’ Claim US In Decline

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says today’s college graduates are well-positioned to lead America in the 21st century.

Biden spoke Monday at the University of Pennsylvania’s commencement ceremony in Philadelphia.

He says graduates shouldn’t listen to cynics who say the U.S. is in decline.

Biden says this is the most competent, capable and caring generation that the nation has ever produced.

Biden’s daughter and one of his sons are Penn alumni. His granddaughter just finished her freshman year at the Ivy League school.
