Outrage as Joe Biden’s hotel tab runs up to more than 1MILLION for just TWO NIGHTS in London and Paris | Mail Online

Vice President Joe Biden spent more than $1 million for two nights in hotels in London and Paris, according to government documents.

 

Biden and his hefty entourage spent the night at two five-star hotels in early February – one night at the Hyatt Regency London for a total of $459,338.65 and another night at the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand for $585,000.50.

The cost of the trips was first reported by the Weekly Standard, which discovered the official contract filing online, showing how much the government paid for the hotel bill.

A State Department official told ABC News that the costs are ‘nothing out of the ordinary.’

 

 

 

 

They are in line with high-level travel across multiple administrations,’ the official said. ‘The contract costs cover the entire range of support, including accommodations for military, communications, secret service staff, and other support professionals. Security experts are also required to travel in advance of the president or vice president. Safety and security are not negotiable.’

 

The cost of foreign trips is always a lightning rod for conservatives who balk at the idea of paying so much for government officials to travel.
