Joe Biden admits he was not arrested in apartheid South Africa
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden admitted Friday that he was not arrested in South Africa in the 1970s, despite repeatedly making that claim on the campaign trail.
“I wasn’t arrested, I was stopped. I was not able to move where I wanted to go,” he said on CNN.
While pursuing the Democratic presidential nomination, Mr. Biden on several recent occasions said he was arrested while attempting to visit Nelson Mandela in prison in South Africa during apartheid.
