The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott (R) showed his appreciation to President Donald Trump for his aid in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s flooding in the Houston area.
The category 4 storm, hit the southeast of Texas on Friday after Texans were encouraged to evacuate the area. President Trump declared the hurricane a major disaster even before it hit, ensuring resources were ready to go after the storm passed.
Before it hit the coast of Texas, President Trump declared the hurricane as a major disaster and ensured that resources were ready to go after the storm passed.
The Governor said that Trump’s response to the crisis has been “extremely professional, very helpful,” adding that they talked on the phone several times.
“He called and said, ‘Governor, whatever you need, you’ve got.’”
Abbott said the state has search and rescue teams fighting to save lives in the flooded Houston area. Search and rescue missions were also sent to the Rockport and Corpus Christi area where the storm hit hardest.
“This is the quickest turnaround I’ve ever seen from the time a governor made a disaster declaration to getting that granted,” Abbott said.
Trump’s speedy response “triggered all the resources of FEMA to help Texas,” which has made a huge difference, Abbott stated.
“I give FEMA a grade of A+ all the way from the president down. We’ve never been more prepared for a storm for a storm than we had been this time,” Abbot added.
Now, a group named Texas Young Democrats didn’t like Trump’s visit to Texas and decided to protest against it. They held banners saying “‘Good Luck’, What is wrong with you,” referring to the president’s statement on Texas’ flooding.
They have clearly misinterpreted it leaving out the rest of the Trump’s official statement, “Stay safe!”
