Is Biden the REAL reason Lachlan Murdoch left LA for Australia?

Is this the REAL reason Lachlan Murdoch left Los Angeles? Claims the Australian media mogul jetted Down Under after Joe Biden took power

Lachlan Murdoch, his supermodel wife Sarah and their three children quietly arrived into Australia from Los Angeles just last month.

And while no reason was given for the family’s arrival Down Under, a new report has claimed that it was the political climate in the U.S. that helped make the decision for the family to leave LA in favour of their Sydney home.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the family ‘felt the cold winds of political change’ when Joe Biden assumed power over Donald Trump, after the family-owned Fox News appeared to favour the Republican Party throughout the pair’s campaigns.

The publication also claims things ‘got pretty rough’ for their children Kalan Alexander, 16, Aidan Patrick, 14, and daughter Aerin Elisabeth, 10, in school.

A source said: ‘The school communities here are very close knit, and it extends into the wider families and the circles and parties they all go to. That Hollywood set is very pro-Democratic.

‘They are mostly big fundraisers for Biden, so you can imagine how well it went down when one of their classmates’ dads is at the helm of the biggest anti-Biden machine in the country.’

Daily Mail Australia have reached out to News Corp for further comment.

The man most likely to take over his father Rupert’s global empire arrived in Australia last month via private jet.

The family completed the mandatory quarantine period for international visitors by remaining confined to their luxury home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The Murdochs bought the beautiful Georgian mansion in Sydney’s Bellevue Hill in 2009 for $23 million and then reportedly spent $11.67 million renovating the property.

They also purchased an adjoining property for more $4.4 million in 2018. In the current Sydney market, the estate would be worth closer to $50 million.

Despite their life in Los Angeles, where Lachlan is Executive Chairman and CEO of Fox Corporation, he and wife Sarah have always maintained the home in Sydney, where they first met in the late 1990s before marrying in 1999.

It’s not known how long the couple and their children plan to stay in Australia, though a large 90th birthday for patriarch Rupert is said to be planned for July this year in California.
