Texas is indeed a country which supports Donald Trump – if one can judge according to their passionate reaction to Mr. Trump’s visit on Tuesday.
Donald Trump together with First Lady Melania got to storm-ravaged Corpus Christi in order to meet the initial responders who had to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
As our President was going to the Annaville Fire Department in order to attend a briefing on the region’s rescue attempts, reports revealed that hundreds of Texas citizens gathered next to the road and cheered for Trump as he was entering.
Chants of “USA!,” “Texas for Trump,” “We Love Trump,” “Texas Strong,” and “We Love Trump!” could all be heard as Trump arrived, according to Breitbart News. A photo of the crowd showed Texans lined up so far down the road that they filled the entire picture.
President Trump took a moment to address the gathered people. Climbing onto a ladder and waving the Texas state flag, Trump and said four words that made the crowd go wild.
“Texas can handle anything!” the president declared.
Trump has made a strong effort to stay in the loop about the hurricane preparations and response efforts. On Twitter, he posted numerous updates as he and the first lady monitored the storm from Camp David, and made it clear that he intended to visit the affected areas as soon as possible.
The president was reportedly also in close contact with Texas officials, including Governor Abbott, former Governor Rick Perry and Senator Ted Cruz.
“[The president] told me directly whatever Texas needs, you got it,” Cruz stated to CNBC’s Contessa Brewer, who is on location in Houston.
It would have been easy for the president to fire off a few concerned tweets, say a few words on camera, and then do nothing to actually help Texas.
But our President decided to rather present true leadership and got to the place of the disaster on his own. As one can see on the videos and photos, the act of him arriving boosted the morale of the citizens and emergency workers.
WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS AND PREDICTIONS
