President Donald Trump showed his support for the people of Texas during his visit to Corpus Christi by waving the Lone Star State’s flag. Trump is in Corpus Christi to tour the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. He couldn’t visit Houston because much of the city is still flooded and continues to see more rainfall.
After Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Corpus Christi, they met with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other officials for a press conference at a firehouse. There, Trump praised local officials for their efficient response to Harvey.
“It’s a real team, and we want to do it better than ever before,” Mr. Trump said of the response effort during a meeting with officials from local, state and federal agencies in a Corpus Christi firehouse. “We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as, this is the way to do it.”
