Joe and Jill Biden leave for their Delaware beach house for their 45th anniversary


Joe and Jill Biden leave for their Delaware beach house for their 45th anniversary with White House cat Willow after President told Americans NOT to visit Ukraine when pressed on U.S. men captured by Russia

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden departed the White House together Friday morning to travel to their Rehoboth Beach home as they mark their 45th wedding anniversary and celebrate the Juneteenth federal holiday.

Traveling with the president and first lady was White House cat Willow, who flew on Marine One in her carrier, taken to the waiting helicopter by an valet. 

The president pressed Americans not to travel to Ukraine, speaking to reporters at departure. 

‘Americans should not be going to Ukraine now. Say it again: Americans should not be going to Ukraine now. They should not be going to Ukraine,’ the president said.

The Bidens landed in Rehoboth about an hour later, getting off Marine One and then being followed by an aide carrying Willow in her carrier a minute later. 

The president and first lady have opted to spend most weekends in Delaware – and as the weather has warmed have spent more time at their beach house located near Cape Henlopen State Park, at the northern part of Rehoboth Beach. 

Earlier this month, a plane flying in the airspace near the Biden residence prompted the Secret Service to remove the president briefly from the property. 

‘A small private plane entered restricted airspace, all indications are by mistake, and precautionary measures were taken,’ an official told CNN about the incident. ‘There was not threat to the president or his family.’ 

That trip was to mark the first lady’s 71st birthday. 

This time, the president and first lady will have a three-day weekend to enjoy thanks to Biden signing a bill last year to make Juneteenth – the official end of slavery in the United States – a federal holiday.
