On Friday (3), the Democratic president was in Louisiana, the first US state in Ida’s crosshairs when it hit the continent, causing serious damage.
On the occasion, he appealed for national unity to combat climate change, a phenomenon he identified as the cause of increasingly frequent extreme events.
The Democratic president also used the visit to praise the merits of his gigantic investment programs, particularly in infrastructure, which have not yet been approved by Congress.
