President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden arrived in Nevada Friday night for a few days off.
The couple rented a private home on the shores of Lake Tahoe, the huge alpine lake between California and Nevada that attracts many tourists, especially to its ski resorts in the winter.
The president flew in from Camp David, where he hosted a summit with the heads of South Korea and Japan on Friday.
The home in Glenbrook Township belongs to Tom Steyer and Kat Taylor. Steyer is a Democratic investor, climate activist, and donor. He was a presidential candidate in 2020.
The Bidens are renting the house at market value and will spend a week in the area, the White House said.
On Monday they will interrupt their vacation to fly to Maui, the island in the Hawaiian archipelago, where a fire burned the historic town of Lahaina to the ground, killing at least 114 people. They will meet with survivors, first responders and local officials as they tour the ruins.
Weeks ago, Biden spent a few days on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where he biked, went to the beach and went out with his wife one night to see the movie "Oppenheimer."
Upon his return to Washington, a number of problems await him to address. He will spend much of September avoiding a government paralysis at the end of the month due to a lack of budget and convincing the legislature to pass a multi-billion dollar supplemental package for Ukraine and money for disaster relief.
Also in September, the president will attend the G20 summit in India and the UN General Assembly.
The White House will continue to vigorously promote the administration's economic achievements under the umbrella banner of “Bidenomics” in an effort to win votes for his re-election next year.
Several members of the Biden family, including his daughter Ashley and some grandchildren, flew with the couple on Air Force One to Nevada. His son Hunter and his wife, Melissa Cohen, with their little boy Beau, were waiting for them at the rented house.
