On Thursday (November 3), while speaking to an audience at Central New Mexico Community College, President Joe Biden explained that he was a professor after his time as Vice President, although he never assumed the role.

The President commented on his stint as a professor while stressing no world leader has spent more time with Chinese President Xi Jinping than him.

“I spent more time with Xi Jinping of China than any world leader has. When I was vice president and when I was out of the office for four years, and I was a professor, and now President,” Biden stated.

Biden made the remarks at the community college in Albuquerque, where he touted his student debt relief plan.

Biden’s stop in Albuquerque is part of a three-day trip to four states, including predominantly blue states California, Illinois, and New Mexico, in addition to battleground state Pennsylvania.

Thursday’s mention of his time as a professor wasn’t Biden’s first.

The President was given the title of Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor at the University of Pennsylvania following his departure from the White House.

The role Biden held between 2017 and 2019 was purely honorary, according to Snopes.
Biden was paid $900,000 for the role for about a dozen lectures and talks, but Biden never gave a semester’s course nor did he conduct administrative tasks or research.

While Biden held the post he was also named Senior Fellow at the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy, but the University announced he would be taking an “unpaid leave of absence” when he launched his campaign in April 2019.
