Hurricane Harvey has been a horrible reminder of the power of nature to cause devastation, but if there is a silver lining it has also served been a reminder of the power of Americans to work together to help each other.
President Trump said exactly this when he invited representatives from the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organizations to thank them for their tireless efforts to help those in need.
President Trump applauded the efforts and quick response of these three organizations to install relief efforts to those in Houston and the surrounding area as well as the work of Vice President Mike Pence to visit the people of Houston.
Here’s what Trump had to say:
“THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE IN WHAT THEY’VE DONE. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THEM AND THEIR STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS FOR THE INCREDIBLE WORK THEY’RE DOING AND IN HELPING PEOPLE AFFECTED BY HURRICANE HARVEY.”
President Trump then asked First Lady Melania to speak and she again thanked the efforts of volunteers and Americans helping each other through this horrible natural disaster.
Watch President Trump’s full statement here:
Then the representatives from the relief groups followed up thanking the other groups for their collaboration and combined efforts to help as many people in need.
The Salvation Army has already served hundreds of thousands of meals and plans to serve millions to those in need.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR PRESIDENT!
This is the power of America when we put aside our differences to help each other.
