Hurricane Harvey may have packed a heated punch, but Texans can hit back harder! Especially when they are back by the rest of America and a president who will not rest until they have everything they need!
Trump was on the ground in Texas to meet with Governor Greg Abbott to address what is left after the natural disaster, named Hurricane Harvey, hit.
A subdued President Trump said Tuesday he was inspired by the resilience he saw in response to Hurricane Harvey, offering for the first time condolences to those whose loved ones had died during the disaster.
Speaking at a manufacturing plant in Springfield, Mo., ahead of a speech about tax reform, Trump opened by addressing the unfolding crisis in the Gulf region, where more than two dozen have died and tens of thousands have been displaced by catastrophic flooding and torrential rains.
He said, “To those Americans who have lost loved ones, all of America is grieving with you and our hearts are joined with yours forever.”
Trump continued, “The citizens of Texas and the Gulf Coast need all the prayers, support and resources our communities have to offer. Recovery will be tough, but I have seen the resilience of the American spirit firsthand all over this country. To the people of Houston and across Texas and Louisiana, we are here with you today. We are with you tomorrow. And we will be with you every single day after to restore, recover and rebuild.”
Trump concluded, “In difficult times such as these, we see the true character of the American people, their strength, their love and their resolve,” he said, “We see friend helping friend, neighbor helping neighbor, and stranger helping stranger. And together, we will endure and we will overcome.”
Together, as Americans, we will get through this and move forward together.
