Following a six-hour stop in Hawaii, where 2,000+ people are still missing after deadly wildfires, President Joe Biden flew back to his holiday on Lake Tahoe in Nevada.
In an official count, over a hundred people lost their lives in the recent wildfires on Maui.
According to reports, Biden’s FEMA administrator neglected to provide an explanation about why at least 115 people have perished and over two thousand are still missing.
Thirteen days after the fire, the President arrived at the destroyed Lahaina area during his visit to Maui, where he spoke with victims of the catastrophe around midday. He departed around 4 p.m.
President Biden’s remarks in Hawaii have drawn criticism. He told a group of fire survivors that in 2004, after suffering a small fire in his kitchen, he had an idea of what it is like to lose a home.
But his home was not burned down.
President Biden continued his vacation at the $18 million lakeside estate of billionaire Tom Steyer in Nevada. While visiting the estate, his family, including his son Hunter, joined Biden.
After receiving reports that Steyer might have broken local housing rules by hiring out the property, Nevada authorities are looking into the matter. According to the White House, the president paid a market rate for his weeklong stay.
According to a report, as the 80-year-old president and his wife visited Maui two weeks following the wildfires, angry locals welcomed him with posters ordering him to leave while demanding more government disaster aid.
People putting their thumbs down and flying Trump 2024 flags lined the path of the president’s motorcade.
A few pissed-off Hawaiians flipped him the finger and their two cents.
Someone made a placard comparing the aid given to Hawaii and Ukraine, estimating that each Ukrainian had gotten more than $1,700 in aid since the conflict began in February of 2022.
President Biden is attempting to make amends by visiting the area, speaking publicly about the destruction, and pledging millions of dollars in government relief to the victims. But it may be too late.
