Biden says he went home to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, because he can't go 'home, home'

There may be no place like home, but President Joe Biden says he can't go to his.

Unprompted, Biden approached reporters Sunday in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, after attending Mass at St. Edmond Roman Catholic Church to say he was not on vacation.

“I don't have a home to go to,” said Biden, who lives in the White House during the week and spends most weekends in Delaware, where he has two homes.

The U.S. Secret Service has been working on his former main residence in Wilmington, Delaware, to make it more secure “in a good way,” he said.

It's been at least a few months since he last spent a night there.

“So I have nowhere to go when I come to Delaware except here and now,” he said, speaking of his other home, in Rehoboth Beach. "I'll only be here for one day."

Biden arrived on the Delaware coast on Saturday night after spending the first part of the day in Florida surveying the damage caused by Hurricane Idalia. She had planned to spend Labor Day weekend here, but changed plans after the storm.

He travels to Philadelphia on Monday to speak at an AFL-CIO rally.

Two weeks ago, he and his family spent a week on vacation in the Lake Tahoe region of Nevada. The Republican National Committee regularly criticizes Biden for leaving the White House on weekends.

He first spoke to reporters about the security upgrades at his Wilmington home in April, when he went to the beach house after returning from a trip to Ireland.

Asked Sunday if he was saying he was homeless, Biden said that was not the case.

“No, I'm not homeless,” he said. “I only have one house. I have a beautiful house. “I’m down here for the day because I can’t go home.”
