Presidente Joe Biden on Thursday called on Congress to pass more disaster relief after Hurricane Idalia pummeled Florida and other southeast states.
During a press conference from the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the Agencia Federal de Gestión de Emergencias (FEMA), Biden said he will visit Florida on Saturday to see the damage himself.
“We need this disaster relief request met, and we need it in September,” after Congress returns from recess, Biden said.
The president took aim at lawmakers who are balking at his request for $12 billion in emergency funding to respond to natural disasters, as well as climate change denialists.
