White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s Twitter account apparently posted a tweet Tuesday that was meant to come from President Joe Biden.
The press secretary’s account reportedly posted a tweet about “investing in all of America” and referred to running for president, according to screenshots posted by several accounts. The tweet has since been delated.
“Investing in America means investing in ALL of America,” Jean-Pierre’s now-deleted tweet read. “When I ran for President, I made a promise that I would leave no part of the country behind.”
On Tuesday, President Biden gave a statement of the fires, which have been raging since August 8, 2023:
“The images coming out of Hawaii are heartbreaking. I want everyone in Hawaii to know that we’re here for you. We’re going to get through this together. This is really, really tough stuff.”
“My wife Jill and I are gonna travel to Hawaii as soon as we can, and that’s what I’ve been talking to the governor about. I don’t want to get in the way. I’ve been to too many disaster areas, but I want to go and make sure they’ve got everything they need, and I want to be sure we don’t disrupt the ongoing recovery efforts.”
As RTM reported, Biden’s disaster declaration authorizes aid for housing, property repair, low-interest loans and recovery programs.
Biden’s latest statement comes after he faced a storm of criticism for callous “no comment” response he first gave when asked about the Hawaii death toll.
