President Trump on Sunday afternoon held a second Cabinet meeting on Hurricane Harvey to shore up response and recovery efforts, according to the White House.

Trump along with Vice President Pence led a video teleconference with Cabinet and senior administration officials “to discuss ongoing federal support for Hurricane Harvey response and recovery,” the White House press office said in a statement.

Trump will also visit affected areas in Texas on Tuesday, according to the White House.

The storm has hammered Texas since Friday, when it first made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane. The federal government has 5,000 people on site in Texas and Louisiana, where the storm continues to bring torrential rain and flooding.

    Those stupid criticizing morons in Washington, sitting in their nice warm chairs
    have no concept on how TEXAS works together and President Trump is seeing first hand how Texans work together to “Get Through” whatever happens. We Texans still have the pioneering spirit and help each other with whatever it takes. Pay close attention and learn how we “do it”.

      Don’t flatter yourself so much as a Texan; American citizens everywhere come together when disaster strikes. We only hear about the bad stuff because until recently, the media only exposed us to the bad things that people do. Glad to see so many American citizens (and, I’m sure many who are not citizens) in Texas come together to help one another.

        I was referring to all the Anti-Trumpers who nit-pic anything that Trump or his family do, such as complaining about Melanias’ shoes she was wearing BEFORE she got on Air Force 1. robotec is obiviously NOT a Texan either and has a warped sense of humor.

        1. roboteq says:

          “Warped” doesn’t quite do my sense of humor the justice for oddity it deserves. This past week; we are all Texans, or at least thinking about Texans, praying for Texans and doing what we can for Texans. Glad to see Texas starting to dry out a bit. Keep up the great attitude under such terrible conditions.

          1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            Thank you for your understanding and prayers for our fellow Texans. We are are a hardy bunch and we’ll get through this and be better for it.

    And the RINO and the Democrats will say that Trump failed, they will say he could have prevented all the damage if he was a real President.

      You do realize that Obama would have used his uncanny power of persuasion to convince Harvey to have missed the US all together. He would have used his powers for good to ensure that weather events like this would never happen. He just had that kind of power.

      1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

        YEAH! Tell me another! Ha! Ha!

        1. Bob says:

          Okay, how about this one: Obama, by just the force of his personality, kept the country safe from natural disasters for most of his first term. It wasn’t until “Super Storm Sandy” creamed New Jersey that he was given the opportunity to show how compassionate he was. I am sure he was upset that he had to suck up to Chris Christie just before the election. (while it also hit MD, he had no reason to g there, they haven’t voted for a Republican since Lincoln) He was responsible for the lack of increase in Global Warming during his time in office, not to mention the slowing of the rise of the oceans. He was the “Environmental President”, and spent enough of our money to prove it.

          1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            O’Bama was NOT the savior of America and had NO miracoulous powers over GOD or any other diety. History will show O’Bama was one of the most useless presidents this country ever had making Herbert Hoover look good.

          2. Bob says:

            Can’t argue with that. Only thing I might change is that Obama made Carter look good. None of the current crop of students are taught history as far back as Hoover. They might have mentioned Carter in one lesson.

          3. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            Gee! Do you mean to say that the schools today do not teach American history? No wonder they keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again expecting a different outcome.

          4. Bob says:

            It has always been a fact that history is written by the victors, and the Democrats have “won” the public education arena, basically truing it into indoctrination of the youth into the Liberal mind set. Public school history classes don’t seem to like to go back farther than the 1960’s, except to point out the racist and xenophobic people who founded and expanded the country. The teachers lesson plans like the 60’s because it is truly the rise of the Democratic, counter culture, anti-American liberal left. They can show how THEY are responsible for the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts, glossing over the facts that a higher percentage of Republicans voted for these acts than Democrats. They like to show the struggle to gain these rights, glossing over the fact that the hands holding the water hoses were Democratic. They particularly like to compare every Republican President to Nixon, ignoring the only President impeached in this time period was a Democrat (Clinton). And you wonder why we keep repeating our mistakes?

          5. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            The Democrats keep harping about how” they are for the working man”. But, somehow they “missed the boat” over the last four years resulting in the most unemployed since the Hoover administration (1929 -1935) And O’Bummer touted as the greatest? Ha!
