If you're thinking President Biden is making frequent trips to Delaware that's probably because he is. Biden has made 57 trips to Delaware, spanning all or part of 185 days, according to a study by former CBS correspondent Mark Knoller.
So that's gotta be a big strain on American tax dollars, right? Absolutely. These frequent short trips have cost taxpayers at least $11 million since the start of his presidency, according to a Fox News Digital analysis.
Every trip requires use of Air Force One or Marine One as well as Secret Service security costs. These frequent trips allow Biden to spend time at his homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach.
Per Fox News:
Public documents from the Department of Defense comptroller show that the Marine One helicopters used by the president cost between $17,065 and $20,206 per hour. The helicopter trip between the White House and locations in Delaware takes roughly an hour, according to the president’s schedule.
Air Force One’s operational costs are $177,843 per hour, and the trip to Delaware takes roughly 30 minutes, according to the president’s schedule. This puts the total operational costs for the trips, including each method of transportation, at about $4 million.

Former President Donald Trump faced a lot of scrutiny for his frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Knoller's study shows Biden makes trips to Delaware more frequently, but there is less distance involved.
