President Trump is already predicting that the Democrats will use the tragedy caused by Hurricane Florence to create lies before the midterm elections.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted the following statement:
“Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence – and they are 100% correct,” he wrote on Twitter. “But don’t be fooled, at some point in the near future the Democrats will start ranting…”
Trump believes the Democrats will create a perception that Trump’s administration is “not doing a good job.” Trump touted the response from FEMA, military troops and first responders to the needs of those impacted by Hurricane Florence.
During a reception for Hispanic Heritage month, Trump recognized the victims of the hurricane and the flooding.
“To every family who has lost a loved one in these really devastating hurricanes and storms: All of America grieves with you,” he said. “Our hands are folded in prayer and outstretched with love. We will never, ever leave your side.”
Flooding continues as rivers crest beyond their banks in North Carolina and South Carolina. Thirty-four deaths have occurred thus far related to Hurricane Florence.
State officials are urging people to not drive through flooded areas and roadways.
