Vice President Joe Biden And Wife Ringing In New Year On St. Croix

Featured / News / Virgin Islands / December 28, 2016

It is well documented that Vice President Joe Biden loves St. Croix. He sometimes makes multiple visits to the island annually, and it has become somewhat of a tradition for the U.S. government’s second in command to ring in the New Year on the Big Island.

This year is no exception, as Mr. Biden and his wife Jill landed at the Henry E. Rholsen Airport on Tuesday afternoon. His arrival was made abundantly clear by the heightened police presence and the sightings of Secret Service vehicles.

The Bidens, arriving from the vice president’s hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, will be on St. Croix until Jan. 2, according to the White House (via New York Post).

President Barack Obama and his family, who have been vacationing in Hawaii where the president was raised, will also return to Washington on January 2. The leaders of the free world will have 18 days left in office when they return to Washington.

President-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated on January 20.
