The Biden administration has been under fire for its handling of the SVB collapse, with many accusing the president of being too slow to respond to the crisis.
Biden left for another vacation this weekend. He has spent 306 days on vacation (40% of his presidency)
If you have worked 4 days a week for the past 2 years, you have worked just as much as the President of the United States.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) recently tweeted out that President Joe Biden has spent 40% of his time in office on vacation, which has raised eyebrows among conservatives. Biden has taken 67 trips to his home in Delaware since taking office, and former Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who was censured last year by the RNC for participating in the Democrat-led January 6 committee, came to the president’s defense. Kinzinger tweeted that Biden is from Delaware and that every member of Congress goes home every weekend. However, Twitter users pushed back, pointing out the cost and environmental impact of Biden’s travels.
In addition to his time away from the White House, Biden has also been criticized for failing to engage reporters during press conferences. On Monday, he refused to take questions after briefly discussing his administration’s response to the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse. Investor Collin Rugg complained that the president gave a 5 minute speech then walked off camera and accused him of being too slow to respond to the crisis.
It’s clear that President Joe Biden is taking advantage of his position to take frequent vacations and avoid engaging with the press. This is especially concerning given the current economic crisis and the fact that Biden has been slow to respond to it. It’s no wonder conservatives are raising eyebrows at Biden’s travel habits, as it appears he is more interested in taking vacations than doing his job as president. His lack of engagement with the press is also concerning, as it shows a lack of transparency and accountability from the Biden administration. It’s time for President Biden to put his vacation plans on hold and focus on the issues facing the nation.
