- Not even first lady Melania Trump could resist a stop at Whataburger during her visit to Corpus Christi to visit first responders and view recovery efforts since Hurricane Harvey hit more than three months ago.
"The effects of the hurricane season are still being felt throughout southern portions of the United States and in Puerto Rico, and residents still need our help", said First Lady Melania Trump in a statement provided by The White House.
But before leaving Corpus Christi, the first lady and the second lady stopped at Whataburger's flagship location for some lunch.
Trump and Pence then met with a family in Rockport, Texas, whose home was destroyed in the storm.
"'We are very proud of the opportunity to show off", Hanson said. And while she's been here twice before, tomorrow she travels without her husband, President Trump. "In fact, the president shares the same concern and he and his administration continue to fight for resources for the people of Texas".
The group also visited an elementary school in Aransas Pass.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas in late August as a category 4 storm.
