Conservatives are blasting President Joe Biden for his Caribbean Christmas vacation amid several simultaneous crises around the country ranging from cataclysmic weather forecasts to a pending emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Tuesday, the White House announced the Bidens had departed Washington D.C. en route to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the president and First Lady Jill Biden would begin a several-day vacation with family through Jan. 2.

The virtue of a presidential vacation is not a foreign one, even as presidents like the Bushes and former President Bill Clinton set a longstanding precedent of remaining in D.C. for the holidays. Biden’s predecessor, President Donald Trump, would often leave Washington to ring in the holiday season at his Mar-a-Lago home while before that, President Barack Obama would spend Christmases at his family’s vacation home in Kailua, Hawai’i.
