Joe Biden Smirks and Ignores Reporter’s Questions on Maui Fires Death Toll – WATCH
Joe Biden was asked for comment on the rising death toll from the Maui fires as he smirked and shuffled along without answering questions.
“Do you have a comment on the death toll?” a reporter Biden on the South Lawn.
As of Tuesday, at least 99 people are confirmed dead in Maui as a result of the fires.
There are still 1000 people who are unaccounted for.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump slammed Joe Biden and the governor of Hawaii for their reaction to the Maui fires.
“The sad thing is it should never have happened, our government was not prepared, and very importantly, the aftermath is going very poorly, with the governor of the island wanting to do nothing but blame it on global warming and other things that just happened to pop into his head,” Trump said.
“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 long time.”
Biden came under fire for his non-response to questions about the Maui wildfires after he spent the weekend riding his bike and sunbathing on the beach.
