Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was welcomed with open arms as he paid an important visit to Louisiana to show express his support to those devastated by floods this week.
More than 40,000 homes were damaged in the state after massive rainstorms led to flooding. Thousands of residents had to be evacuated, and many still remain in shelters. Thirteen Americans lost their lives in the floods.
Trump made an honest attempt to avoid media representatives on the visit, but the media seemed to appear everywhere he went.
Jeff Nolan, a resident of Louisiana, showed the emotional response to Trumps visit.
“Let’s see,” he said. “I didn’t lose anything compared to what a lot of people lost. I’m OK. It’s materialistic things. They can be replaced.”
“And having Trump here, that meant a lot to you?” ABC reporter Tom Llamas asked.
“Oh yes, yes,” he quickly responded. “Because, hell, America’s gotta wake up! Donald Trump’s the way to wake us up. He’s waking America up, he’s gotta get busy. America’s got to get behind him…Without America getting behind Donald Trump, we’re going to lose and lose bigger than this flood. So, America’s gotta wake up.”
Kellie Michelli, a resident of the hard-hit area of East Baton Rouge, also expressed her gratitude to Trump, claiming that it did not matter if he donated as long as he showed up.
“He took time out of his busy schedule to come here,” Michelli said. “I don’t care if he gives a nickel, he showed he cared by coming here.”
