A resident of Lahaina, Hawaii, just told President Joe Biden to "go home."
The anonymous resident, one of the many victims of the Maui wildfires, said as much in an interview that she did with reporter Jeremy Loffredo.
See the interview for yourself, here:
An indigenous Lahaina local tells me she lost her house, pets, medicine and cash savings. She can't get a call back from FEMA and has yet to see any type of US aid relief.
She says Joe Biden should keep his insulting $700 because of the "gazillions" he's sending Ukraine. pic.twitter.com/FLNgMdemtq

The above video, which is a little over a minute long, begins with the resident explaining her current situation, after losing everything to the Maui wildfires, and indicating that she has yet to receive any help from the U.S. government.
Still today I haven't had any money come in. I haven't had anybody call me back. I didn't have anything. I have no idea. I lost my house, I lost my car, I lost my animals. Come on, man, we're not getting anything. Today I still didn't get my meds yet. My medicine was all burnt in my house. My rent money was all burnt in my house. I have no money anymore.
Here, the resident directly turns her attention to Biden and the $700 "relief" checks that his administration has promised.
"I think Joe Biden should take his $700 and get back on the f****** plane and go home," she said. "$700 compared to all the millions he's giving to Ukraine."
She continued, "Why? We need it. That's why we don't understand why. We're citizens and we can not get money. But, if they're not citizens they get gazillions of dollars from the USA."
The Washington Examiner reports:
Two weeks ago, there were four total fires, and one, in the Puʻukoliʻi Kaʻanapal area, was extinguished. Since then, one of the fires has been designated as two separate fires, the Kula and Olinda fires, which are both 85% contained. The Pulehu/Kihei fire is 100% contained, and the fire in Lahaina is 90% contained. Altogether, the fires have burned through over 3,000 acres in Maui.
On top of this, over 100 people have died and thousands remain missing.
Biden has received heavy criticism for his response to the situation, which began with him repeatedly refusing to even comment on the wildfires.
He then made things worse for himself when he visited Maui and made jokes and comments that many have deemed to be inappropriate.
Suffice it to say that the woman in the above video is not the only local who is not happy with the Biden administration's response to the disaster.
