Trump, Biden at Penn graduation as parent, grandparent

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Both Donald Trump and Joe Biden are attending a graduation ceremony at the University of Pennsylvania, but not on the stage as politicians – they are in the audience as parent and grandparent.

The Republican presidential candidate’s daughter Tiffany Trump and the vice president’s granddaughter Naomi Biden are among 1,500 students graduating Sunday evening from the School of Arts and Sciences. Donald Trump graduated from Penn’s Wharton School of Business in 1968.

The ceremony is underway and is expected to last a couple hours.

Trump and Biden aren’t expected to attend Monday’s main graduation ceremony for the Ivy League school. Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the megahit Broadway musical “Hamilton,” will speak at that ceremony and receive an honorary degree.
