PSAKI: Biden Won't Visit Waukesha Because It Would Take Too Many 'Assets' And 'Resources,' 'This Is Such A Difficult Time Of Year'

White House spokesperson Jen Psaki defended Democrat President Joe Biden’s decision to refuse to travel to Waukesha, Wisconsin following the vehicular terror attack allegedly carried out by a BLM-supporting rapper. Psaki intimated that it would be too “difficult” for Biden to meet with victims because of the time of year and the “assets” and “resources” required.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Psaki, “Since this administration said the President is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has been revealed by prosecutors that the assailant swerved his truck side to side as part of an intentional act to run over as many people as possible, six people are dead, some children remain hospitalized. Why hasn’t the President visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?”

“Well, I would say first as you saw the President convey last week, our hearts go out to this community, to the people in Waukesha, that we’ve been in touch obviously with officials there, we’re all watching as people are recovering and this is such a difficult time of year for this to happen, it’s difficult any tie,” Psaki replied. “Obviously any president going to visit a community requires a lot of assets, requires taking their resources, uh, and it’s not something that I have a trip previewed planned at this planned point in time [sic]. But we remain in touch with local officials, and certainly our hearts are with the community as they’ve gone through such a difficult time.”

Biden previously claimed “we don’t know all the facts” about the massacre, and never mentioned the primary suspect:

Democrat president Joe Biden finally addressed the mass murder in Waukesha, Wisconsin last, noting that “we don’t have all the facts and details yet.” Biden did not comment on the fact that police have identified the main suspect in the attack as Darrell Brooks, a rapper who expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement and other leftist racial causes.

“Before I began, I wanna comment on the uh, tragedy last night that occurred during the Holloway, the, the holiday parade in Wisconsin,” Biden said. “Well we don’t have all the facts and details yet, we know, um, that five families in Waukesha are facing fresh grief of a life without a loved one. At least 40 Americans are suffering from injuries, some of them in critical condition. An entire community is struggling, struggling to cope with a horrific act of violence.”
