Beyond highlighting the number of people who have been ordered to evacuate their homes in southeast Texas, Mrs. Trump pointed out that she wanted to help and support “in the most productive way possible, not just through words, but also action.”
She ended her statement by saying her “thoughts and prayers” are with the victims in Texas and Louisiana.
