While President Trump was in Houston for a (surprise, surprise) controversial visit to Houston, he made a statement that raised a few eyebrows. Now, the White House is doing a little damage control on the matter. Another day, another controversy. So, what exactly did he say?
It appears that the worst of Hurricane Harvey's rains may be behind us.
But that doesn’t mean that the courageous people of Houston are in the clear. Not only does the flooding persist, but the rebuilding effort for the fourth largest American city will be substantial.
Damage has stricken the roughly 2 and a half million citizens in the Houston area.
While their spirit is admirable, the effort until now and after has required leadership.
Naturally, there's no role in the United States that embodies leadership more than that of President.
Doing what many Presidents have done before, Trump visited Texas to (ostensibly) survey the damage.
However, his visit seemed to be one that was largely self-serving.
Atop a truck in Texas, his appearance seemed to be indicative of some bizarre rally than anything actually useful to the people in need.
He spoke to many, far from the damage, as though it was a campaign event.
He was boisterous, and little attention was paid to the damage and danger present.
But that’s not what upset people the most…
