‘What a crowd, what a turnout,’ Trump says while visiting Texas amid Hurricane Harvey

Admin Aug 30,2017

President Donald Trump appeared to be satisfied to see several supporters assembled amid his outing to Texas to review the harm of Hurricane Harvey.

The president moved on a stage between two fire trucks to address the couple of hundred supporters who had accumulated outside of a Corpus Christi fire station where Trump met with crisis and government authorities on Tuesday.

The president climbed atop a platform between two fire trucks to address the few hundred supporters who had gathered outside of a Corpus Christi fire station where Trump met with emergency and government officials on Tuesday.

“What a crowd, what a turnout,” Trump said to the assembled supporters.

“We love you. You are special. We are here to take care of you,” he said, speaking into a microphone while flanked by first lady Melania Trump. “It’s going well.”

After thanking Gov. Greg Abbott and the state’s senators, Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, Trump called the storm-relief response “a total cooperative effort.”

“It’s historic, it’s epic, but I tell you it happened in Texas, and Texas can handle anything,” he added.

The president held up a Texas flag to cheers from the crowd, which was interspersed with a handful of people protesting Trump.
