President Trump who traveled to Texas twice after Hurricane Harvey made the first visit to Florida on Thursday to see the damage caused by cyclone Irma. Criticized his first trip to Texas to keep his distance from the disaster-stricken population, he did not hesitate this time to plunge into the crowd.
Donald Trump had a first meeting with local authorities in Fort Meyers, located on Florida’s west coast, the area most affected by Irma. Then he went to Naples, flying a helicopter over the flooded lands.
In this seaside resort, Trump, accompanied by his wife Melania and Vice-President Mike Pence, distributed sandwiches and bananas, joking with the residents, tapping them in the back and lending themselves with good grace to selfies.
“Very special” people
“ Just want to tell you that we are 100% behind you. I will come back often, promised the White House tenant. It is a state that I know well, as you know. You are very, very special people and we love you.”
The president plans to travel to the Keys, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands next week. In a jovial mood, he even thanked the journalists who had covered the two consecutive hurricanes.
But Donald Trump, as loyal to himself, lost all the benefit of a successful visit, repeating, while returning to Washington on board Air Force One, that during the Charlottesville riots, were shared, citing the role played by the anarchist group Antifa.
