President Biden Visits California to Assess Devastation Caused by Floods and Landslides

President Joe Biden arrived in California on Tuesday to survey the damages caused by the recent deadly storms and flooding.

The President was accompanied by California Governor Gavin Newsom, and the two began their tour in the city of San Jose, where they observed the destruction of homes, roads, and bridges caused by the floods.

In a speech at San Jose City Hall, Biden expressed his condolences for the victims of the flooding and landslides and thanked the first responders for their courage and dedication. He also announced a plan to provide financial assistance to the affected communities.

“No one should have to suffer the way so many of you have suffered,” Biden said. “That’s why I’m here today — to make sure that the federal government is doing everything it can to help you get back on your feet and rebuild your lives.”

The President also praised the resilience of the people of California, saying, “The strength and spirit of the people of California have been an inspiration to the rest of the country, and I’m proud to be here today to stand with you in the face of this disaster.”

The tour concluded with a visit to a local shelter, where Biden spoke with families affected by the flooding and landslides. He then met with local leaders to discuss further plans for relief and recovery.

The President’s visit comes as the state of California continues to grapple with the aftermath of the deadly storms and flooding.
