(DailyVantage.com) – President Joe Biden is facing heavy criticism from American citizens due to his responses when asked various questions regarding the Maui wildfire, which has left over 100 people dead so far. Reporters questioned Biden about the ongoing wildfire during his vacation in Rehoboth, Delaware. They received questionable answers from Biden, leaving many feeling like the president doesn’t care about Maui.
When asked about the fire, Biden initially stated “no comment” about the national tragedy before claiming the White House was “looking into it.” Biden’s responses were vague and felt disingenuous to many citizens. The White House quickly responded to the internet’s criticisms of Biden by claiming he was very concerned with the ongoing natural disaster and stating that FEMA was already preparing operations to aid the people of Maui. The White House’s response to the ongoing Hawaii disaster is unclear, but Biden’s response could heavily factor into his upcoming presidential re-election campaign.
His political opponents are already accusing Biden of disregarding the American public. This sentiment could resonate with many voters if the president doesn’t act fast to aid the people of Maui. Biden’s questionable comments about the ongoing wildfire aren’t too surprising to many citizens and serve as the latest instance of the White House correcting the remarks made by the aging Biden.
The White House is already taking action to improve Biden’s appearance following his comments to reporters. Biden will be meeting with Maui survivors soon and will likely provide some aid to Maui in the coming weeks. Despite this, many feel that Biden’s efforts are to bolster his image rather than to help people who need relief genuinely. The Maui wildfire is one of the deadliest natural disasters of the past century, raising questions about how such a fire could occur without residents becoming aware. There is typically an early warning system to prevent wildfire casualties, but no such system seems to have functioned before the wildfire killed over 100 people.
According to the latest available death toll, 106 Maui residents have died in the wildfire, making the ongoing fire one of the deadliest natural disasters in the United States in the past 100 years. However, there is some hope for the people of Maui, as FEMA is working closely with other organizations and the political leadership of Maui to provide relief and identify those who lost their lives during the tragic fire. Biden will meet with Maui residents soon and will likely allocate more resources to help those who lost their homes and jobs during the intense wildfire.
