Why is Biden refusing to do his job?
President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, have arrived in Nevada for a period of relaxation for the second time this month, choosing to unwind at a private residence on the picturesque Lake Tahoe. This expansive alpine lake straddles the borders of California and Nevada, drawing numerous tourists, especially during the winter season due to its renowned ski resorts.
According to Newsmax, the president’s journey to Lake Tahoe followed a summit at Camp David where he engaged with the leaders of South Korea and Japan. The residence they are staying at, situated within the Glenbrook community, is owned by Tom Steyer and Kat Taylor. Tom Steyer is recognized as an investor, advocate for climate-related causes, and a contributor to the Democratic Party. He was a candidate in the 2020 presidential race.
The White House clarified that the Bidens are paying a fair market rate for their rental and intend to spend approximately a week in the region. However, their vacation plans will briefly pause on Monday as they travel to Maui. The purpose of this visit is to offer support and comfort to the survivors, first responders, and local authorities dealing with the aftermath of a devastating wildfire that claimed the lives of at least 114 individuals in the historic town of Lahaina.
Joe Biden had earlier taken a vacation in August at his residence in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where he engaged in activities such as biking, beach visits, and enjoying a night out with the first lady to watch the popular film “Oppenheimer.”
In past summers, the Bidens have chosen vacation spots like Kiawah Island, South Carolina, and the resort island of Nantucket, Massachusetts, for their Thanksgiving celebrations. They also spent the end of the previous year in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
As the president readies to return to Washington, he will be greeted by a host of pressing issues. The White House’s focus in September includes averting a government shutdown, securing support from lawmakers for a supplementary funding package that includes aid for Ukraine and disaster relief, and participating in events like the Group of 20 summit in India and the annual United Nations General Assembly.
Continuing to advocate for his legislative achievements under the banner of “Bidenomics,” the White House aims to gain more approval from the electorate as Biden gears up for a potential second term. Notably, several members of the Biden family, including his daughter Ashley and some grandchildren, traveled alongside the president and first lady on Air Force One to Nevada. Biden’s son Hunter, along with his wife Melissa Cohen and their young son Beau, were already at the rented residence in Lake Tahoe.
