‘Texas Can Handle Anything’: Trump Waves Flag After Addressing Crowd
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott greeted the president and first lady as they disembarked Air Force One. Abbott said last weekend that the president “gets an A+” for his response to the crisis. Trump declared the storm a disaster early on, freeing up federal resources for relief.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson Health, Human Services Secretary Tom Price and other Cabinet members joined the president on the trip.
The president later appeared at a meeting with Gov. Abbott and local officials. After brief remarks to a crowd that gathered outside the fire station, the president waved a Texas flag and told them “Texas can handle anything.”

It’s clear that Trump isn’t just in Texas for a photo op and the people know it. His response to this tragedy has been outstanding so far. The media won’t be able to demonize him the way they did with Bush after Katrina.
