White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday defended President Biden’s recent weekend trips to Delaware despite the COVID-19 pandemic, saying that’s where he lives.
A reporter pressed Psaki at her daily press briefing on whether Biden was setting a poor example on “personal travel during the pandemic” when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging people to avoid non-essential trips.
“Well, the president lives in Wilmington. It’s his home. That’s where he’s lived for many, many years,” Psaki said.
