President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday to assess the recovery efforts underway in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which has been the first major natural disaster to strike the United States under his leadership.
Once there, President Trump marveled at the massive destruction the storm left in both Corpus Cristie and Austin Texas, which he went as far as describing as being “epic” and “historic” during his briefings with local and state officials. But unlike his predecessors, he went on to set the bar high for himself and his administration’s response to this deadly hurricane. He made it very clear that he wants it to be used as a model for the country long after Texas’ recovery. Thank You, President Trump!
But what is even more astonishing isn’t the destruction left in the storm’s wake, nor the fact that like always, the American Main Stream media, instead of focusing on the storm, they continue to hammer President Trump and his family. Last night’s news cast top story on NBC wasn’t about the people left homeless, nor the abandoned animals who were rescued during and after the storm. It was about how our First Lady Melania Trump left the White House for Texas while wearing stilettos and how President Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But interestingly enough, not even one mention of the crowd of people in Corpus Cristie, who although they lost everything in the storm, were out in full force to catch a glimpse and show support for President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.

It’s now being reported that Hurricane Harvey made landfall again:
The devastating storm once known as Hurricane Harvey, already the biggest rainstorm in the history of the continental United States, made landfall again Wednesday morning, delivering another punishing wave of rain to Texas and Louisiana.
Five days after roaring ashore in Texas — leaving behind disastrous flooding across Houston and a mounting death toll that had reached at least 22 people — Harvey made landfall before dawn near tiny Cameron, La., and began grinding its way northeast.Now a tropical storm and expected to weaken over land, Harvey’s immediate impact is not expected to pack the same destructive power as when it slammed into Texas as a Category 4 hurricane last week and dropped foot after foot of rain.
But forecasters said the danger was far from over, and alarming amounts of rainfall in Texas have been battering cities such as Beaumont and Port Arthur. The National Weather Service warned Wednesday that “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding will continue in and around Houston eastward into southwest Louisiana for the rest of the week.” The service also warned that “expected heavy rains spreading northeastward from Louisiana into western Kentucky may also lead to flash flooding” across those areas, imperiling a new swath of the population.

President Trump’s administration has had an excellent response to Hurricane Harvey. They had everything ready to go the moment the storm cleared. By contrast, the Bush Administration wasn’t ready for Hurricane Katrina, and Barack Hussein Obama, well, Barry did what Barry does, he left to play golf while Hurricane Sandy was bearing down.
