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.
