Joe Biden has been spotted climbing onto his jet as he embarks on yet another holiday.

The President – who came to office in January 2021 – has jetted off to various destinations around the globe, much to the chagrin of many onlookers.

In a video uploaded to social media, the Republican National Committee (RNC) posted a video of the 81-year-old stepping on board a plane.

The captioned the video: “Biden takes no questions as he jets off to Nantucket, where he’s spending the rest of the week at his billionaire buddy’s $34 million compound.”

The account also claimed that Biden has spent 405 days of his presidency on holiday.

This equates to 39.1 per cent of his time in office.

The RNC has defined vacation as time spent holiday, personal business, or just regular days at one of his Delaware homes.

For comparison, former President Donald Trump spent a little over a quarter – 380 out of his 1,461 days – of his presidency on personal trips, according to CBS.

Trump would often spend time at properties he owned, which would therefore financially benefit from his presence.

The President frequently vacations to properties that do not belong to him, however he does have a beach house in Delaware which he often travels to for weekends.

Whilst the President is away, it allows staff at the White House to complete renovations and construction, CBS has stated.
