Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What divides America on such an memorable day in US history.

On a visit to Paris earlier this month, Harris reportedly spent more than $500 on cookware at E Dehillerin, a shop near the Louvre museum.

Don Moynihan, a professor of public policy at Georgetown, wrote: "Just to put this in perspective: What Harris spent her own money on for cookware wouldn't cover what Trump was charging taxpayers per room for Secret Service agents."

Republicans also criticised Joe Biden for spending the Thanksgiving holiday on Nantucket, an island off Massachussetts, at a house owned by David Rubenstein.

The private equity billionaire is an alumnus of the Carter White House and a philanthropist who has spent millions on preserving historic documents and buildings. Nonetheless, Biden's decision to stay at his $30m house attracted fire from the left as well as the right.

David Sirota, a former adviser to Bernie Sanders and a Guardian contributor, said: "It's already very Let Them Eat Cake for a president to hang at a billionaire's Nantucket pad - but it's some real Gilded Age shit when the billionaire's private equity firm has all sorts of interests before the government right now."
