Trump Releases Maui Video, Rips Biden for Poor Response

Former President Donald Trump released a video on Monday on behalf of the people of Maui who have suffered due to wildfires that have killed at least 99 people.

Trump also blasted President Joe Biden for his inadequate response and for avoiding the issue while taking a summer vacation.

“I would express my sympathy and warmest regards to the people of Hawaii, and specifically all of those who have been so gravely and irreparably hurt by the tragedy of the wildfires in Maui, something the likes of which have seldom been seen anywhere at any time,” he said.

"To say no comment is oftentimes fine but to be smiling when you say it, especially against such a tragedy as this is absolutely horrible and unacceptable. It is a disgraceful thing that Joe Biden refuses to help or comment on the tragedy in Maui, just as he refused to help or comment on the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, for a very very long time," he added.

"Bloomberg White House correspondent Justin Sink reported Sunday that Biden had nothing to say during his Delaware beach getaway on the rising death toll due to severe wildfires, which reached 96 as of Monday afternoon with hundreds more missing," Fox News reported.

"After a couple hours on the Rehoboth beach, @potus was asked about the rising death toll in Hawaii ‘No comment,’ he said before heading home," Sink reported on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Biden finally responded late Tuesday on federal assistance for those impacted by the Maui wildfires. The response was a full week after the fires began.

The president promised a $700 one-time payment to those in need, an amount less than the president has approved for Ukraine.

The Trump video offered a strong response as the former president continues to portray a strong image despite multiple indictments.

The former president's poll numbers show that he remains highly popular among many as he seeks a comeback bid for the White House.
