Biden leaves Delaware for West Coast trip


President Joe Biden left Delaware Monday morning for a trip to Idaho and California.

The President left from New Castle Airport at around 8 a.m. for Joint Base Andrews. He will then fly to Idaho for a briefing on western fires and then head to Northern California where he will be briefed  on the massive Caldor fire.

The day will end with a rally for California Gov. Gavin Newsom who is facing a recall election.

On Saturday night Biden and First Lady Jill Biden returned to their home near Greenville after visiting all three sites of the Sept. 11th attacks on Saturday.

It was the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, with one passenger believed to be targeting the U.S. crashing into a field and former strip mine in Pennsylvania.

The Bidens spent Friday night in New York City before attending a 9/11 remembrance with former presidents Clinton and Obama.

The First Couple then flew to Johnstown, PA, where they visited the site where Flight 93 went down near Shanksville, PA. Earlier, George W. Bush, who was president at the time of the attacks, gave an address at the Pennsylvania site.

The Bidens then flew to Joint Base Andrews and then went to the Pentagon. From the Pentagon, they flew to New Castle County Airport, arriving at 6:25 p.m. 

On Sunday morning, the Bidens attended mass at St. Joseph on the Brandywine. 

Biden later played a round at Fieldstone Golf Club with longtime friend and former U.S. Sen. Ted Kaufman and Jack Owens, his brother in law.

The Bidens are expected to remain at their home until Monday.
