Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said President Joe Biden and other government leaders need to rebuild the “huge deficit in trust” in the aftermath of the wildfires that devastated Lahaina on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

While speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday, Gabbard said the residents of Maui were left without help from the government and that government officials must win back the trust of the people of Maui.

“There’s a lack of trust because of the failure to communicate, the failure to provide services. The people in these surrounding communities have been faced with a situation where they had no power. They were told they couldn’t drink the water out of the faucet. Roadblocks were being put in place. So they had to turn to each other as a community to get food and to get the kind of immediate, basic support they needed. They didn’t see anybody from any level of the government for over a week after this catastrophe happened,” Gabbard said.

“There is a huge deficit in trust. That trust needs to be rebuilt. The leaders, all the way from President Joe Biden down to the local level, need to be present, need to be there, and then need to act on what they’re hearing from their communities,” she continued.
