President Biden and his family, including disgraced first son Hunter, are spending their summer vacation at a $20 million beachfront mansion in South Carolina.
According to nypost.com, Joe Biden recently asked prominent Democratic donor Maria Allwin — the widow of hedge fund founder James Allwin — if he could stay at her nine-bedroom Kiawah Island estate.
“They stayed here before and they’re not paying,” a source revealed to nypost.com. “They’ve never paid. They’re just friends.”
The property features a large swimming pool on two acres and is surrounded by palm trees and other lush vegetation for privacy.
The Bidens have often stayed at Allwin’s mansion, which was listed for sale earlier this year — including as early as 2009, while Joe Biden was vice president.
