An interview with a Maui resident who lived in Lahaina revealed she has not had any money come in after losing her house and car. In response to the situation, she said President Joe Biden should "take his $700 and get back on the f*cking plane and go home."
The indigenous Lahaina local told journalist Jeremy Loffredo she lost her house, car, medications, and cash savings in the fire.
She thought it was insulting that the Biden administration was sending billions of dollars to Ukraine but at the same time not doing anything for "citizens" of the United States who "cannot get money."
"But if they're not citizens, they get gazillions of dollars from the USA," she went on speaking about Ukraine. "Where's our government?"
Loffredo asked the resident, "Is this how your community and other Hawaiians and locals and indigenous people - is that how they feel?"
The resident of Lahaina said that the whole community feels similarly.
"Everybody feels that way," she said. "That's why the local people stick together, and we help our own people because we know outside people not going to do it."
Disastrous fires ripped through the island of Maui earlier in August. Initially, when asked by reporters about the death toll, Biden simply told them, "No comment." Since then, many have been dissatisfied with his actions surrounding the disaster.
Biden's lack of comment and other actions have appeared to cause pent up frustration with the president in the state. When he visited the island on Monday, he was met with protests saying that he was "too late."
More backlash came against the president when he appeared to fall asleep at a meeting with Maui residents.
The death toll from the fires remains at 115 as of Thursday and a list of 388 names of people missing has been released. Earlier this week, a list of over 1,000 was identified and not all names have been released as of Friday morning.
