The president hoped to visit the Buffalo shooting scene to express his condolences to the families. He also discussed the issues facing the United States.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden made his second public statement after 4 hours on the Buffalo shooting at the grocery store in Buffalo that left 10 people dead.
President Biden Pledges To Expose Everybody Involved In The Buffalo Shooting
He vowed that his side would battle to the death and that their opponents would be shown no mercy.
Even though he called the Buffalo shooting an act of domestic terrorism, President Trump did not expose the perpetrator on Tuesday. He did not identify the persons he held accountable for disseminating the “replacement theory” doctrine that he claimed inspired the Buffalo gunman to take violent action. Institutions and faceless politicians, he added, were to responsible for cynically promoting the ideology of wealth and power.
Biden’s office claims that the vice president’s radio quiet is strategic and a reflection of the administration’s awareness of the fraught political climate in the United States. Their reluctance to name individuals stems from a desire to avoid fueling the conspiracy notion that whites were being replaced by nonwhites organized by Democrats to achieve power.
Top advisers are of the opinion that famous celebrities like as the host of Fox News, Tucker Carlson, would be more likely to back away from replacement theory if they were subjected to criticism from other Republicans and, more importantly, advertisers. A senior member of staff reportedly said that they had no intention of giving Carlson footage of an assault on the president that Carlson could “use in his A-block every night.”
An insider in the White House provided the following explanation: “[We] totally understand the desire to call out people who have been pushing this disgusting rhetoric.” However, the White House insider continued, “I also think it’s worth remembering that many of these demagogues would love nothing more than the oxygen and attention that comes from the president blasting them.” In turn, “that attention and recognition may aid them in further disseminating these lies.” [Citation needed]
Hours after hearing news of the Buffalo shooting, Vice President Joe Biden decided to visit the scene on Tuesday, despite having a long travel to Asia scheduled later in the week. Three White House sources said that Biden pushed for this and even contacted New York Governor Kathy Hochul to see whether it would be possible for him to visit the scene of the massacre so soon after it had occurred (less than 72 hours).
