US President Joe Biden to travel to wildfire-ravaged Hawaii next week

US President Joe Biden will travel with the First Lady to Maui on Monday, where they’ll meet with first responders and survivors, and survey damage from wildfires which last week ravaged the island. And as Benji Hyer reports, the death toll from the state of Hawaii’s worst natural disaster in history, and the country’s deadliest US wildfire in more than a century, has now topped 100 people. Officials say it’s expected to rise further. Thousands others have been made homeless.
