Former Dem senator thanks Trump for visiting Louisiana
Former Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) on Friday thanked Donald Trump for visiting Louisiana in the wake of intense floods.
“I want to thank Mr. Trump for coming to Louisiana,” Landrieu said on CNN’s “Wolf,” adding that she thought the visit was helpful for the devastation-wracked state.
Landrieu said she thought Gov. John Bel Edwards’ (D) “admonition” that Trump not come to the state for a photo-op “is a good one.”
Still, Landrieu said, the GOP presidential nominee “brought attention to our state, and we need that now because this disaster … is far larger than people can appreciate on television.”
Landrieu noted that rain leading to intense flooding covered several parts of the state outside Baton Rouge, where Trump visited Friday with his running mate Mike Pence.
