"He left the frigid continental US after a Christmas weekend winter blast killed at least 65 people and canceled more than 10,000 flights," the New York Post reported.
"It's unclear if the vacation was planned before or after Biden treated the Nevilles to the lavish banquet on the taxpayers' dime — but the first family is not paying for use of the home, which features an in-ground pool, lush landscaping and sweeping views, along with direct beach access," it added.
Bill Neville, is the founder of the software company US Viking that runs the news platform ENPS. The Post noted that the platform is used by over 800 news outlets to easily search media content and create stories for broadcast.
The Nevilles donated $10,000 to Biden's 2020 campaign, according to public records. The family also donated to other campaigns, both Democrats and Republicans.
Biden's departure comes as the nation faced a winter storm that killed dozens of people. In addition, the border crisis continues to grow.
Instead of addressing these and other concerns, Biden had a 4,155-page bill flown to his island location in the Caribbean so he could sign it without being in Washington.
