Biden points finger at Texas state leaders for delay in federal Beryl aid as they accuse him of politicizing storm

President Joe Biden expressed frustration over delays in emergency relief distribution after Hurricane Beryl due to difficulties contacting Texas officials. Biden noted the necessity of a specific request from Governor Greg Abbott for federal aid, who was in Asia during the disaster. The White House attempted multiple times to contact both Abbott and acting Governor Dan Patrick without success. Tensions rose as Patrick accused Biden of politicizing the situation, despite the urgent need for disaster response after the hurricane left significant damage and power outages in Texas and Louisiana.
