Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ plan to rescind sexual assault reporting procedures on college campus.

Sexual assault is the ultimate abuse of power, and its pernicious presence in our schools is unacceptable,” Biden wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday.

“Students have taken on this fight,” Biden continued. “Keep fighting. Tell this administration that we refuse to go backwards.”
