Psaki defends Biden’s weekend Delaware trips, says he ‘lives in Wilmington’

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.

“And as you know, as any president of the United States does, he takes a private airplane called Air Force One to travel there. That is of course a unique — unique from most Americans. But I think most Americans would also see that as a unique circumstance.”
