The cap said "Pop" on the back, which she joked was to "make sure the job title doesn’t get to his head."

This was Biden's first trip to Camp David as president.

Complete with everything from an archery range to a bowling alley, it's been used as a presidential retreat for decades, but it's also where President Jimmy Carter negotiated the peace deal between Israel and Egypt in 1978.
