Top trending: Biden makes quick weekend trip to Delaware

Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Joe Biden returned to Delaware Saturday afternoon, with Air Force One landing at New Castle Airport. He departed on Monday morning.

The motorcade to and from his home in the Greenville area led to brief traffic delays.

Politico had earlier reported that Biden would fly to Delaware after the House passed the $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill known as the American Rescue Plan.

No public events were scheduled during his time in the state.

On Saturday, Biden offered brief remarks on the bill’s passage, which would provide $1,400 checks to Americans and assistance to state and local government.

There were no immediate reports on the reason for the trip, which came three weeks after his first trip to Delaware after taking the oath of office.

According to the president’s schedule, he is flying back to Washington, D.C. Monday morning and will receive the daily briefing. Later in the day, he is slated to meet virtually with Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the president of Mexico.
