(TargetLiberty.org) – On Tuesday, President Biden during his speech in Milwaukee talked about the devastating wildfires in Hawaii which had caused the death of almost 100 people.
As he stated people needed to imagine being in the position of those parents who did not know where their child is, or being a wife, or husband, as the situation was very “tough.” He proceeded to say that he and first lady Jill Biden were intending to visit Hawaii at the earliest possible time but that from having been in disaster areas he knows that it is important for them to not arrive at a time when they would be getting in the way of the recovery efforts.
He added that they were working to ensure that those in Hawaii were going to have the necessary resources and that so far, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved sending federal aid to Hawaii, including 75,000 liters of water, 50,000 meals, and 10,000 blankets. He added that there are currently 500 federal personnel that have been deployed to Maui.
Biden also stated that he had been talking with Gov. Josh Green to organize a possible trip and that until then they would not just be sending their prayers but also every asset needed. As he said they were going to continue being in Maui for “as long” as needed.
Biden’s speech in Milwaukee has also focused on his economic agenda and it included a tour of clean energy manufacturing company Ingeteam. The speech took place only a day before the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, which was a big success in pushing forward Biden’s economic agenda.
