In an exclusive story published in People magazine on Friday, President Joe Biden finally addressed the question about why he would not acknowledge his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan Roberts. The statement comes after a month of speculation surrounding why the little girl appeared to be excluded from the President’s tightly-knit family circle and why the Administration will not provide Secret Service protection for the child, as the other six grandchildren are given.
Navy Roberts is the daughter of Hunter Biden, the President’s son, and Lunden Roberts, who filed a paternity lawsuit against Hunter back in 2019. Hunter now pays child support after resolving the legal conditions.
“Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward,” President Biden was quoted in the People magazine article. He said that the matter is purely a family issue and not a political one. “Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy,” he added.
Last week, the watchdog group Judicial Watch took legal action by filing a lawsuit to obtain documents related to the Secret Service’s decision to deny protection for Navy Roberts, who had not been publicly recognized by the President until now. Despite at least one documented threat, the Secret Service has still not provided security for Navy or her mother.
