First Lady Melania Trump Issues Statement on Texas Rescue, Response, Relief and Recovery Efforts…

WHITE HOUSE – The effects of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in Texas, Louisiana, and other parts of the country for many months and years to come.  So far, 1.7 million people are under orders to evacuate their homes, and, as the floodwater in Houston rises, sadly, so will the number of evacuees.

I want to be able to offer my help and support in the most productive way possible, not through just words, but also action.  What I found to be the most profound during the visit was not only the strength and resilience of the people of Texas, but the compassion and sense of community that has taken over the State.  My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Texas and Louisiana.

~ Melania

      “Melania is a stellar FLOTUS! So appreciative of her beauty & Grace.”
      I agree only the positive! No mention of the total detritus on the US east and west coasts.
      BTW that “no mention” truly highlights the political morass of the current US congress! She got sucked into that FLOTUS game, but truly reflects what all citizens must consider.
      Many countries have a Monarchy that cannot be boughten. The USA finally has a extended family that cannot be boughten!</b

      When we first saw Melania she was so shy but she has now become a comfortable rest stop for people who are hurting. She hugged and kissed one of the women who was speaking to her today and when the woman turn her face in our direction she was grinning from ear to ear. The Left does not or will not understand how much the appearance of The President and First Lady mean to people who are hurting. The people of Texas will not be overlooked.

    Ask Barack and Michelle to be special Houston community helpers. They can’t say no and you’ll squelch all of the poisoning they are doing behind the scenes because their hands will be busy doing community organizing.

    100% sincere, I am no fan of Barack but if you ask him to take this on YOU HAVE HIM WHERE YOU WANT HIM AND CAN KEEP AN EYE ON HIM. And if he does a good job you thank him if he doesn’t you burn him.

    Melanie Trump is an ideal person to accompany the President on this trip to Texas. She has shown herself to be a faith warrior and shares that grace wherever she goes. Just what is needed in storm ravaged Texas.

    “The only color in greater Houston today is red, white, and blue. The only religion on our streets is love. There is no race, no creed, no gender, no socioeconomic classes, no nationality, no sexual orientation, no religion–

    “There are only people helping people. There are only strangers opening their homes for strangers. There are only men and women risking their precious lives for other precious lives.

    Today, no matter who you worship, the color of your skin, where you were born…we are all Texans.

    “For a stunning moment the world has stopped fighting against each other and started fighting for each other.

    “It’s breathtaking.

    “Take note world. You don’t need to wait for a devastating disaster to love. You don’t need to wait until your neighbors are drowning to reach across the color, religious, nationality, political boundaries. This world is suffering a different kind of storm, one far more dangerous than Harvey–a storm of hatred. Let’s refuse to let it break us.”

      Such a careful observation of this “is”! To preserve self do not be helping those in no need! When need is obvious offer all you have. If you observe piglet drowning in ditch; stop carriage. Go into ditch and push piglet toward worried mama. Your only reward will be biggest smile and loudest ‘Oink” from said Momma. Treasure that reward! 🙂

    She’s a fascinating person. At first you notice how beautiful she is, certainly one of the most attractive women on the planet, period. Then you notice she’s very graceful as well, always well poised like models often are.

    Then you have to notice that she’s very private (regardless of her past modeling) and doesn’t seek the limelight… but has been fully thrust into it by being named First Lady. You get the sense that she didn’t really seek that out, but it’s part and parcel with being married to the God Emperor.

    With all that said… she has done this her way; and her way is beautiful and graceful. She’s done charity work for years but just like she brings out the best in President Trump the job of First Lady is beginning to bring out the best of Melania Trump.

    This is going to be a great 8 years. I’m excited to see what she accomplishes once she realizes the great platform and power she has as First Lady.

    The more we learn about the Trumps, the more American they become. It is hard to imagine an America right now without Donald Trump and his family. It is not what they do and feel for themselves, but what they do and feel for us which is endearing.

    As time goes by, it becomes more and more definitive who are the Americans living in our Country and who are not the Americans living in our Country. In the future, citizens of our Country will demand leaders who are “America-First”. The days of such overt; crooked, corrupt, criminal standards by our leaders will come to a joyous end.

    I think FLOTUS should challenge Amazon to supply and stage prepaid standard size boxes for Americans to send everything from women’s t-shirts, men’s suits, to children’s toys to home accessories, kitchen supplies to bedding. Categorize the items in preprinted boxes.

    Create the mother of all donated supply chains for people to rebuild their lives. Amazon should use their own distribution centers and their same day shipping for when people are ready to resupply immediately or during rebuilding.

    Call it Buffalo By U….just donated items, though, for free if you qualify, sent by all Americans across the country. Supply the affected with an Amazon Buffalo By U ID card.

    I have many items, new and vintage, which are in pristine condition; I would be happy to send them down to Texas for people to rebuild their homes, rather than drop it off at the local Goodwill center, where the owner of Goodwill just makes a profit off the stores.

    I admit I have not followed this event much at all, so everyone may have heard all this, but that it was a 1-1000 year rainfall, and may be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. PDJT has the opportunity to do something of unbelievable importance for this country. I think he will pull out all the stops. And I have a suggestion: that those troops bound for Afghanistan been turned around, the trillions of dollars that will be poured into a country of savages be spent on this country in rebuilding that area. How about we look out for this country first as Donald Trump said he was going to do in the campaign

I’m glad she’s married to the right guy and knows how great that FLOTUS cap looks on her (as I never see her wearing any other head covering…?). We are truly in the presence of ‘GREATNESS’…!

    Here is an Idea….

    Melania could sell those hats with the the Heart Sign and the Shape of Texas underneath FLOTUS with all proceeds going to help our Texan Brethren. I know some 63 million people who would buy them, and possibly more than one for gifts…..

  39. Melania reminds me of Sophia Loren. Am I the only one?

    I do find it funny how after 8 years of proclaiming Michelle Obama most glamorous First Lady of all time, the press now trashes a genuinely glamorous First Lady who is in truth everything they hyped about Michelle O.

    Political disagreements with the Obamas aside, Michelle is a middle-aged woman of average looks and comes of a bit of an oaf in my opinion.

    I remember back in the first season of The Apprentice. One team won a challenge and the reward was to have tea or something like that up in Trump’s penthouse. Melanie met them at the elevator and gave them a tour of the main rooms.

    One of the female contestants gushed that Melania was so lucky. Melania asked her what that girl meant. The girl said, “to be married to Mr Trump and have all of this”. Melania responded in a very friendly tone that NO he is the lucky one to be married to me.

    I became an instant fan then because I felt Trump finally married someone that was a good fit for his sheer force of nature. I believe they have a good balance of power in their relationship. Hard to achieve when a self made billionaire is part of the. couple.

    I just love her. You can tell that she is just so proud to have the role she does, and she is going to do the best job she can. I feel like she is working for the American people in a way that no first lady in my lifetime ever has. She has the heart of a servant, not a rich person dabbling in charity work.
