According to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, the country’s condition will worsen if Trump is re-elected.
On Monday, September 14, Biden made remarks in an outdoor speech at the Delaware Museum of National History to highlight the dangers facing America’s suburbs due to the recent fires. As reported by Fox News, Biden stated, “We are not safe in Donald Trump’s America.” He then re-emphasized that Americans are in Donald Trump’s version of America as he is in charge. Biden explained that although it was not Trump’s denial of climate change that caused the fires and other natural disasters, they would only continue to happen more often and be of a more destructive and lethal scale due to his indifferent attitude.
He went on to say that what is needed is a president who respects science and, therefore, understands the harmful effects of climate change. He urged people to take action before it only gets worse.
As per left-wing publication Vox, the state of California has problems with its forest management and how more people are continuing to build and re-build in areas that are prone to fires.
Apart from that, he claimed that no importance is being given to this matter by the democratic state. People have been arrested for using Molotov cocktails to start wildfires on the West Coast. As of recently, one of the most massive fires to hit California was started by a device used during a gender reveal party.
In his 25-minute speech, Biden focused particularly on the recent fires, floods, and hurricanes and how they have impacted those that live in the suburbs the most. “We have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires?” “How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?”
He went on to say that if someone who denies climate change is re-elected and given power, why would people be surprised if America starts to drown or catch more fires? He stated that Trump would not take responsibility for or even give importance to the wildfires in California, as he believes that integration is what’s menacing the suburbs instead of focusing on the more obvious issues such as climate change.
