President Donald Trump has a long history of caring for others, he truly does. I won’t go into it here just yet but over the weekend he met with victims of Hurricane Harvey, played with children, and even handed out food and supplies to the people. And if you ask me, especially Liberals, his charitable nature is simply underestimated.
Trump thanked volunteers and first responders, passing out food with his wife, Melania. The president, who mainstream media outlets have said lacked “empathy” during the early days of the hurricane, hugged and kissed little children in the “kid zone” at Houston’s NRG Center, a massive facility that has become the city’s largest emergency shelter.
“The message is that things are working out well,” Trump said at the center. “Really, I think people appreciate what’s been done. It’s been done very efficiently, very well, and that’s what we want. We’re very happy with the way everything is going. A lot of love. There’s a lot of love.”
Asked what families had told him as he moved through the center, Trump said: “They were just happy. We saw a lot of happiness. It’s been really nice. It’s been a wonderful thing. As tough as this was, it’s been a wonderful thing, I think even for the country to watch it and for the world to watch. It’s been beautiful.”
Trump was asked about what he saw the from the window of Air Force One as he flew in.
“The flooding? Oh, yeah, yeah, there’s a lot of water, but it’s leaving pretty quickly. But there’s a lot of water, a lot of water, but it’s moving out. But I think most importantly, the governor, the relationship with the governor, the mayor and everybody, it’s been fantastic. And with the federal government. We’re signing a lot of documents now to get money into your state. $7.9 billion. We signed it and now it’s going through a very quick process.”
Trump took pictures with volunteers and chatted with victims of the storm, alongside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. At one point, Trump leaned down and cupped a little boy’s face while the two spoke — and then gave him a high five. He lifted a little girl up and gave her a kiss, one pool report said.
