Sen. John McCain sang the praises of Vice President Joseph R. Biden, touting his many positives at a ceremony to recognize the White House’s contribution to foreign aid.
“Vice President Biden deserves our gratitude and respect for his many years of effective leadership in ensuring that all the resources America has to influence the course of world events are funded adequately and used effectively,” Mr. McCain said Thursday during the ceremony, according to the Hill.
Mr. Biden was being recognized by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, particularly for his work in the Senate when he chaired the Foreign Relations Committee.
Mr. McCain said Mr. Biden deserves “a share of the credit” for the advancement of U.S. principles and policies around the world.
The Arizona Republican said he’s never “doubted for a moment that the United States of America is fortunate to be served by as able, articulate, honest, dedicated and impassioned a world leader as my friend Joe Biden,” the Hill reported.
