The Strength and Resilience of the People of Texas
Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts Continue
Yesterday, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Texas where they received a briefing on Hurricane Harvey relief efforts with local leadership and relief organizations. The President and the First Lady also met with state leadership at the Emergency Operations Center.
Statement by First Lady Melania Trump on Hurricane Harvey
«The effects of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in Texas, Louisiana, and other parts of the country for many months and years to come. So far, 1.7 million people are under orders to evacuate their homes, and, as the floodwater in Houston rises, sadly, so will the number of evacuees. I want to be able to offer my help and support in the most productive way possible, not through just words, but also action. What I found to be the most profound during the visit was not only the strength and resilience of the people of Texas, but the compassion and sense of community that has taken over the State. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Texas and Louisiana.» – First Lady Melania Trump
