President Donald J Trump and his Cabinet members bent their heads in prayer as they got together at Camp David in Maryland prior to Trump’s presented words of support for those affected and still endangered by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
“All of American continues…to pray for the families affected by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma which looks like it’s really going to be a bad one. But we’re prepared. We’re as prepared as you can be for such an event,” Trump stated. “All of America grieves for those who have already lost their lives.”
The president likewise said of Irma, which is going towards Florida as a “major” hurricane, that “we’ve never seen anything like this.”
As a priority on the agenda was the government’s readying for the influence of Hurricane Irma. Trump and the Cabinet got updates during the day, as read in a pool report, and were informed by acting Department of Homeland Security secretary Elaine Duke. Hurricane Harvey slammed parts of Texas and Louisiana in August.
A White House official stated that the president and first lady Melania Trump were keeping people hit by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in their prayers, and emboldened everyone to follow local authorities. Trump delivered this message to those in the path of the storm: “Property is replaceable, but lives are not.”
Trump also recognized Vice President Mike Pence for leading a “wonderful” opening prayer, a photo of which was shared by the White House.
