President Trump is spending the day touring storm-ravaged areas in the wake of Hurricane Florence. The president departed the White House this morning with senior aides and arrived in North Carolina in Air Force One an hour later, where he was greeted on the tarmac by local officials.
A photo of the president on board the plane that his social media director shared to Twitter shows the president conferring en route with the state’s senators, his Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and others.
At the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, Trump stressed that the flooding had been pretty extensive, even though it’s quite sunny. ‘Some of the flooding is actually epic. Hard to believe,’ he said. Trump praised first repsonders and promised to take care of ‘everybody’ affected by the storm. ‘Unfortunately the money will be a lot, but it’s going to come as fast as you need it,’ he pledged. ‘We’ve done a real job, and we’ll continue to do a real job,’ Trump said, sitting alongside Nielsen and FEMA Administrator Brock Long. He declared: ‘Whatever we have to do at the federal level, we will do.’
