(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump met with emergency responders in Florida today, thanking them for what he called their "incredible" work after Hurricane Irma hit the state over the weekend.
The president and first lady Melania Trump – both sporting white baseball hats -- were greeted on the tarmac by Vice President Mike Pence, who landed a bit before the Trumps; Florida Gov. Rick Scott and his wife; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; state Attorney General Pam Bondi; and the Federal Emergency Management Agency's administrator, Brock Long.
"People thought thousands and thousands of people may have their lives ended, and the number is a very small number, which is a great tribute to you," Trump said to the first responders.
He praised FEMA and the Coast Guard and "the job you've done in saving people and saving lives." [ Source (Read More...) ]
