VP Joe Biden and his wife Jill landed on the island of St. Croix-Henry E. Rholsen Airport on Tuesday afternoon. His arrival was made abundantly clear by the heightened police presence and the sightings of Secret Service vehicles.
It is well documented that Vice President Biden loves St. Croix. He sometimes makes multiple visits to the island annually, and it has become somewhat of a tradition for the U.S. government’s second in command to ring in the New Year on the Big Island.
The Bidens, arriving from the vice president’s hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, will be on St. Croix until Jan. 2, according to the White House (via New York Post).
President Barack Obama and his family, who have been vacationing in Hawaii where the president was raised, will also return to Washington on January 2. The leaders of the free world will have 18 days left in office when they return to Washington.
President-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated on January 20.
