Senator Ted Cruz shamelessly mocked Biden for going on “vacation” while recounting a controversial trip to Cancun he took during the Texas crisis
Texas Senator Ted Cruz mocked President Joe Biden for going on vacation, citing his own trip to Cancun in February 2021.
Biden spent several weekends of his presidency in his home state of Delaware.
Cruz fled Texas for Cancun during a historic winter frost in February that killed 210 people.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz slammed President Joe Biden for spending the weekend away from the White House recalling his own controversial vacation to Cancun, Mexico, in February amid a weather crisis in Texas.
Biden spends the weekend in his home state of Delaware, which he has done throughout his political career. The Republican Party slipped on him during the trip, accusing him of being “on vacation”.
“Joe Biden has decided to go on vacation AGAIN ONCE,” the Republican National Committee tweeted. “He’s running away from all the trouble he’s caused.”
In response, Cruz tweeted, “Cancun is beautiful this time of year.”
Cruz, a staunch Republican, referred to his controversial trip to Cancun, Mexico, with his family during a historic winter freeze that left 210 Texans dead in February 2021. Cruz returned from his vacation the next day after photos of him and his family at the airport and on a plane to Cancun has gone viral on Twitter.
“It was obviously a mistake and with hindsight, I would not have done it,” said Cruz on his return to Texas, adding that it was not his intention to reduce “the suffering and the difficulties that other Texans had known “. He said he tries to be a good father by keeping his two daughters out of the cold.
Biden’s trips to his home country on weekends are nothing new. During his years as a senator, he took the train home from Washington, DC every night to spend time with his family. In August, Biden had spent fewer weekends in the White House than former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, NPR reported.
