Truth : President Joe Biden Went On Vacation After Bomb Cyclone!
Here are the reasons why they are all wrong to claim that President Joe Biden went on vacation during the 2022 bomb cyclone.
Fact #1 : Ted Cruz Went To Cancun During A Deadly Winter Storm
First, let us establish some context for Donald Trump Jr’s claim regarding Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
In February 2021, Ted Cruz faced tremendous outrage after photos showed the Republican Senator fleeing Texas during a deadly winter storm that left millions without power or heat, and over 200 people dead.
After social media exploded over those photos, Senator Cruz admitted that he and his family left Texas to fly to Cancun “at the request of his daughters”.
(Finally) realising how bad it looked, the good Senator flew back to Texas the next day, to “go home and keep working to get the grid reopened, to get power restored, to get the water back on.”

Fact #2 : Bomb Cyclone Ended On December 26, 2022
The December 2022 North American winter storm – started on Tuesday, December 21 and ended five day later on Sunday, December 26.
The winter storm became to form on December 21, and strengthened the next day before becoming a bomb cyclone on December 23 and 24.
A day before it became a bomb cyclone, President Joe Biden asked Americans to “please take this storm extremely seriously”.
The polar vortex bomb cyclone dissipated by Sunday, December 26, after causing transportation disruption, power outages and almost 90 deaths across the United States.
Fact #3 : President Biden Went On Vacation After Bomb Cyclone
It was two days after the bomb cyclone dissipated when President Joe Biden and his family flew to the US Virgin Islands for a vacation, and to ring in a new year.
The President and First Lady Jill Biden flew from Washington D.C. to St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands on Tuesday, December 28, 2022. There, they were joined by their daughter Ashley and her husband, Howard Krein, as well as their grandchildren Natalie and Hunter.
While Senator Ted Cruz left Texas during a severe winter storm, President Biden only left for his vacation after the winter storm had dissipated.

Fact #4 : President Biden Continued To Work In St. Croix
The White House disputed Donald Trump Jr’s claim that President Biden was refusing to “do something about this stuff”.
Not only had the bomb cyclone ended two days prior, the White House pointed out that the president continued to work and monitor the situation, even while he is in St. Croix.
Fact #5 : President Trump Took Far More Vacation Days
It should be pointed out that Donald Trump Jr’s father – the former President Donald Trump, once said that “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off”.
Yet, his father – the former President Donald Trump, ended up taking 381 days of vacation time, most of which were spent at his own properties, directly / indirectly enriching himself during his vacation.
