Joe Biden has been criticized for spending time on “vacation” by visiting Camp David, the presidential retreat, while major disasters continue to unfold.
Biden’s vacation is now the 18th time that he has gone back to Delaware during the first six and a half months of his presidency. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to disclose who Biden meets with when goes back to his home state.
“And no, I can confirm we are not going to be providing information about the comings and goings of the President’s grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware,” Psaki said.
By my count, this is Biden’s 18th trip home to Delaware, all of part of 48 days.
Compares at same point in presidency to:
Trump – 7 trips to Mar-a-Lago, 5 to Bedminster (50 days)
Obama – 1 trip home to Chicago (4 days);
GWBush – 7 trips to Texas ranch (36 days)
