President Obama Asks Joe Biden to Attend NYPD Funeral


While President Obama is vacationing in Hawaii, he has dispatched Vice President Joe Biden to attend the funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos, one of the police officers murdered in New York City.

“The President has asked Vice President Biden to attend the service for Officer Rafael Ramos and is grateful that the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden will be traveling to New York City to attend the service on Saturday,” the White House Deputy Press Secretary said in a statement.
