On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the White House press corps that President Donald Trump will be donating $1 million of his own personal wealth to the disaster relief effort in Texas.
Texas was hit with the destructive Hurricane Harvey on Saturday and experienced unprecedented flooding in the wake of Tropical Storm Harvey. Thus far, there have been a reported 31 fatalities, a number expected to dramatically increase once the flood waters subside.
President Trump and First Lady Melania visited South Texas on Tuesday, offering a needed morale boost to the people of Texas and making it clear that Trump’s administration, and America, stand with them.
Vice President Mike Pence, too, has helped with the relief effort, personally removing tree branches surrounding homes in Rockport.
The Trump Administration has been applauded by Texas officials for the handling of the disaster, and leftists, with little left to criticize, have turned to whining about Trump’s tweets and Melania’s “Hurricane Stilettos.”
