Some also claimed Trump was trying to promote hats that his company makes during his first visit
During President Donald Trump’s second visit to Texas following Hurricane Harvey it did not take long for 45 to embarrass himself yet again.
As Trump spoke to reporters, he was asked: “What did the family tell you today?” The question was in regards to a family Trump met with earlier on Saturday who had lost everything in the deadly hurricane.
In a very odd response, Trump replied, “They were just, happy. They showed a lot of happiness.” While the response was odd to say the least, it is Trump’s next comment that is really raising some eyebrows.
Trump went on to say, “It’s been really nice. It’s been a, it’s been a wonderful thing. As tr. . . as tough as this was, it’s been a wonderful thing. I think even for the country to watch and for the world to watch. It’s been beautiful.”
It is not clear what part of Hurricane Harvey Trump believes has been a “beautiful” or “wonderful” thing. One can only hope that he was commenting on the number of people that have come together from around the country to help with rescue and clean up. As we have witnessed since before his presidency, Trump is not always the best with words.
Trump has caught backlash for both of his trips to Texas since Harvey’s destruction. During his first trip, Trump did not meet any of the victims of Harvey, which angered many people.
To make matters worse, Trump wore a USA hat that his company makes and sales for $40 on his re-election campaign site. Some viewed his choice to wear the hat as a tasteless opportunity to promote his products.
