President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden traveled to their Delaware home again this week, marking the 12th visit in the president’s first four months in office — something former President Trump would have been mercilessly maligned for.
“In the evening, the president and the first lady will travel to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where they will remain until Friday,” the White House’s daily guidance email for Wednesday stated, according to the Washington Examiner.

According to WMC-TV in Delaware, “Biden bought the beach house for $2.7 million in 2017, after leaving the vice presidency and aided by a $8 million multibook deal that he and his wife signed.”
It noted, “The house is on a cul-de-sac in North Shores, just north of the beach resort. It has a swimming pool that overlooks Cape Henlopen State Park, where Biden’s helicopter landed Wednesday. The house is blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and a short drive from downtown Rehoboth Beach.”
The trip also marked the first lady’s 70th birthday, according to the New York Post.
Despite his effort to look like a working-class American, the Bidens have ranked high in wealth. They reported more than $600,000 in income for 2020, with more than $944,000 in 2019, according to reports.
Delaware remains an important place for the president. When leaving for the inauguration, he said, “When I die, Delaware will be written on my heart.”
