Biden has spent 23 of the last 32 days on vacation, the RNC said on Friday.
According to the New York Post, since being installed in January 2021, Joe Biden has spent more than 40% of his presidency on vacation.
The New York Post reported:
President Biden is taking heat for spending 40% of his days in office “on vacation” after he was away from the White House for two-thirds of August.
Biden’s weekend jaunts and vacations spanned 234 days — with seven in 10 of them spent at his homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware — out of 589 days in office.
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told The Post that Republicans believe it’s a winning campaign issue — alongside concerns over the effects of Biden-era spending, including Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus package last year and this year’s $437 billion environmental and health care bill.
The 19-month tally of Biden trips was assembled by the RNC and is consistent with independent journalistic counts. It includes days that Biden spent at his Delaware residences as well as days at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, and trips to Nantucket, Massachusetts, and Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
