"Fox News": Biden spent a quarter of his term in the family home, making trips that cost the treasury millions of dollars.

Fox News reported that US President Joe Biden’s regular vacations in his home state of Delaware have cost taxpayers more than $11 million since the start of his term.

According to former CBS correspondent Mark Knoller, the channel reported that Biden made 57 trips to his hometown of Delaware for a total of 185 days. In October, CNN reported statistics that the US president spent a quarter of his term, or 172 days, at his family’s Delaware residence.

These trips, as Fox News points out, require large expenditures to finance the costs associated with the use of the presidential plane and the Navy helicopter, which Biden travels, as well as the costs of ensuring the security of the head of state. In total, according to Noller, the US president made 101 flights between Washington and Delaware, 71 by helicopter and 30 by Air Force One.

Fox News pointed out that the above $11 million was less than what was actually spent because it did not include many other expenses, such as the cost of helicopters escorting the president and the cost of living for escort personnel.

And she explained, “Biden’s trips to his state of origin sometimes exceed the usual presidential weekend schedule, as the president usually travels to Delaware on Thursday, works from his home on Friday, stays there for the weekend, and then leaves (Delaware) on Monday morning.” . Not Sunday night.”

Republicans have previously criticized President Biden’s weekend habit in Delaware, and the White House has responded to criticism that Biden remains US President wherever he is and can work from anywhere.
