“Governor, whatever you need, you’ve got.”
President Donald Trump has been readily doing everything he can to ensure all supplies necessary to help save and stabilize Houston are available, after Texas was slammed by Hurricane Harvey.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is shutting up the media and liberal whiners who say that the president is not helping with the relief in Texas, when it is in fact the opposite.
In fact, Abbott said, “He called and said, ‘Governor, whatever you need, you’ve got.'” He continued on to speak highly of Trump and explain how he’s been “extremely professional, very helpful.” He said the two have spoken on the phone many times.
Hurricane Harvey hit southeast Texas as a category 4 storm on Friday after Texans were encouraged to evacuate the area. President Trump declared the hurricane a major disaster even before it hit, ensuring resources were ready to go after the storm passed.
Abbott said the state has teams working to save lives in the flooded Houston area and has also sent search and rescue missions to the Rockport and Corpus Christi area where the hurricane hit hardest.
“This is the quickest turnaround I’ve ever seen from the time a governor made a disaster declaration to getting that granted,” Abbott stated.
The president’s speedy response “triggered all the resources of FEMA to help Texas,” which has made a huge difference, the governor explained.
Abbot added, “I give FEMA a grade of A+ all the way from the president down,” he continued, “We’ve never been more prepared for a storm for a storm than we had been this time.”
It sounds like there is a good team effort being given all around. Our president has shown that he can not only handle an unstoppable crisis, but that he can make sure every resource is put into play to help the people impacted by the natural disaster as well.
