As is customary in their family, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will spend Thanksgiving on Nantucket with other relatives. The Bidens paid a visit to the firefighters at a Nantucket firehouse along with their two-year-old grandson Beau to express their gratitude for their dedication. The White House claimed to have called overseas military personnel from every branch of our armed forces.
When asked about the Virginia Walmart shooting, Mr Biden briefly interviewed reporters at the firehouse and stated, “I’m sick and tired of these shootings.” When asked if he would try to pass gun legislation before Republicans take control of the House of Representatives in January, he called for stricter gun laws and responded, “I’m going to try.”
When the voting was over, Mr Biden said, “I’m going to do it whenever — I got to make that assessment as I get in and start counting the votes.” The Bidens also contacted the proprietors of Club Q, the scene of a shooting on Saturday night in Colorado Springs that left five people dead.
According to the White House, the Bidens reaffirmed their commitment to opposing hate and gun violence and their support for the neighbourhood. What, do you think I need it? Mr Biden laughed when asked if he would soon get a physical.

The Bidens started taking trips to Nantucket at Thanksgiving when they began dating, according to Jill Biden’s autobiography “Where the Light Enters.” She claimed that the former chief of staff for Mr Biden suggested Nantucket, where they stayed in a cottage by the water.
For the following forty years, “Nantucket Thanksgiving became our tradition,” Jill wrote. With a few exceptions, we have travelled there every year since developing customs that have become essential to our family. In actuality, the late Bidens’ son Beau proposed to his wife Hallie at the yearly Nantucket tree lighting in 2001, and the two later wed at St. Mary’s Church in the town of Nantucket.
The first Thanksgiving following Beau’s passing in 2015, Jill Biden wrote that the family skipped Nantucket. However, she claimed their grandchildren requested to return to Nantucket the following year. She wrote, “Thanksgiving was Nantucket.” “They missed the quaint stores, the ice cream shop we frequented, and the weekly Friday lunch. They desired to explore the cobblestone streets and witness the lighting of the Christmas tree. They chose a relationship. to resume feeling regular.
In his autobiography, “Promise Me, Dad,” Mr Biden claims that his younger son Hunter and son Beau convinced him to run for president in Nantucket in 2014. “Dad, you need to get away,” Beau reportedly told Mr Biden, and he claimed Hunter told him, “‘We want you to run.'”In light of Beau’s fight with brain cancer, Mr Biden decided not to run for president in 2016. In May 2015, Beau Biden passed away.
Although he stated on “60 Minutes” in September that it is his “intention” to run for president once more, Mr Biden has not yet confirmed whether he will do so in 2024. ” But, Mr Biden continued, “it’s just an intention.” “But have you decided that I should run again? That is still up in the air.” Last week, Mr Biden declared that he would be running for president in 2024. Mr Biden defeated former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
