Biden Takes Heat for Spending 40 Percent of His Days in Office ‘on vacation’; Biden Schedule Is Heavy on Delaware, Light on Press Interviews; Joe Biden spent a quarter of his first year as president in Delaware

Biden takes heat for spending 40 percent of his days in office ‘on vacation’: 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.
“Voters want Republicans, who actually show up to work, to dig America out of Biden’s recession, secure the southern border, and put an end to reckless spending of taxpayer dollars,” McDaniel said.
“Soon, Democrats will be able to join Biden on his weekly vacations when Americans vote them out in less than 70 days,” she added, referring to the midterm congressional elections.
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.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates pushed back on the criticism of Biden’s travel, saying, “The presidency is a nonstop job that chief executives can do from anywhere in the world.” --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Schedule Is Heavy on Delaware, Light on Press Interviews and Golf:
President Biden’s schedule shows he has a fondness for travel to Delaware and the occasional game of golf—and a cautious approach to formal interviews and press conferences.
As the summer draws to a close, Mr. Biden is planning to spend some time away in August, starting later this week with a trip to Kiawah Island, S.C. In his first 18 months in office, he traveled to Delaware 46 times and to Camp David 18 times. He played 15 rounds of golf, conducted 17 formal press conferences and gave 20 sit-down interviews, according to former CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller, who tracks presidential data.
The numbers, which span from taking office through July 20, reflect a president who wants to head home frequently at weekends, as he did when he was a senator and vice president. They also underscore a media strategy that has relied more on prepared remarks and brief question-and-answer sessions with reporters than on formal press conferences and interviews. --->READ MORE HERE
