The Biden administration does not consider the consequences of the natural disaster in Texas a problem that should be considered in the light of the party preferences of residents.
President Joe Biden will soon travel to Texas, whose residents have been severely affected by winter storms. He will be accompanied for most of the visit by Texas Governor, Republican Greg Abbott. This was announced on Thursday by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
“He will spend most of the day with the governor… and they will assess the damage. The president does not see the crisis that has affected millions of people as a problem of Republican voters; he considers it a problem that he is trying to help solve, to use all the resources of the federal government,” Psaki said, addressing reporters at a press briefing at the White House.
The Texas governor is one of Trump’s key supporters in the Republican Party. According to CNN, Trump was slightly ahead of Biden in this state in the November election, receiving 52.1% of the vote.
Psaki spoke to the people of Texas, confirming that “we are thinking of them, fighting for them, and we will continue to work on this while they recover… We are now focused on helping people in the state, getting them updated information and using all the levers of the federal government,” the White House press secretary said.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Houston on Friday, the Associated Press reported. The President plans to meet with local community leaders and will also visit the COVID-19 vaccination center.
