President Trump at Briefing on Hurricane Florence Recovery Efforts

Horry County Emergency Management Center
Conway, South Carolina
3:40 P.M. EDT – 3:

 

GOVERNOR MCMASTER: “For those of you who haven’t been here for a while, welcome to South Carolina. Welcome to Conway. Welcome to Horry County. And if you’ve been looking for rain and water, you’ve come to the right place. (Laughter.)

We’re delighted to have the President here and others, as well. We have not had a disaster like this one before. Hurricane Hugo, in 1989, was a tremendous blow, but it came in in McClellanville, just above Charleston, and went through in a hurry.

Hurricane Florence came in and stayed, going to North Carolina and South Carolina, and left record amounts of rain. So our problem has not been with the wind and the rain hitting us, but with the rain that is still here. And we have not only the record amounts that have dropped on South Carolina, particularly in this third of the state, but we have the water coming down from North Carolina, because we have three watersheds, three river sheds. The Waccamaw, the Pee Dee, and the Lynches River. Those watersheds all coming to where we are.

So the rain and the water that you see out there now is just the beginning. The worst is yet to come. We’re going to have water outside this building, maybe four feet deep, maybe five feet deep, maybe something less. But we’ve got people that need help.
The good news is the team in South Carolina is up to the job. We have had the best cooperation and coordination and preparation that people say they have ever seen. And it goes from volunteers to private companies and private people, as well as the local authorities, the state authorities, with our congressional delegation, and everybody in between, not the least of which has been our federal partners. We’ve had more cooperation and coordination and communication with our federal partners than we have ever had before. This may be the worst disaster that we’ve had in South Carolina.

But the cooperation, and the assistance, and the encouragement, and the confidence they’ve given to our people, to the federal establishment and what we call “Team South Carolina,” is beyond compare.

So we are confident that we are going to build our way out of this. We’ve managed the hurricane. Now we’ve got to manage the floods. And then we’ll manage the reconstruction and the rebuilding.
And one great thing that we have helping us is this man standing behind me, President Donald Trump — one in a million. South Carolina loves you, and we’re delighted you’re here. (Applause.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: First of all, Henry, thank you. And you’re doing a fantastic job. Everybody. Everybody — the job that you’re doing, the coordination.

We just left North Carolina. They got hit really, really hard, and they are working. And all of that water is coming your way. A lot of people don’t know that. They assume, and you look outside and you see this beautiful weather, but over the next couple of days, it’s going to get rough in South Carolina.

So the federal government is behind you. We have Lindsey Graham here. We have Tim. Where’s Tim and Lindsey? Tim Scott. They have really — they’re with us all the way. They’re with us all the way. And whatever we need from Washington, we are there.

Our team — I don’t think there’s ever been a team like this. From everybody — virtually everybody said it — what we’re doing on a federal basis, what you’re doing on a local basis, and the coordination has been absolutely incredible.

So I know you have a rough few days. It will last a long time. It could last a long time. But you’re going to have a rebuilding process, and we are behind you from day one. From three days ago, and now it looks nice, but it’s really the calm before the storm. Because you’re going to have a lot of water.

We see it; it’s coming down. It just comes down. Nobody would believe a thing like this could happen. And already you’ve broken all records, and this is going to add four, five, six feet of water all over the state.

So Washington is with you. Trump is with you. We are all with you 100 percent. And we’ll get through it. And I think the most exciting part is going to be that rebuild, because you’re going to have a lot of rebuilding. I flew over, and there’s a lot of damage. And you haven’t really been hit yet by comparison to what’s coming.

So I love South Carolina. I love this state. I’m very proud of Henry McMaster and the job he’s done as your governor. And I can tell you that Tim, and Lindsey, and myself, and Thom — the great congressman — we’re all in there fighting. And it’s going to work out very well.

This room — the job you do is great. And we really want to thank you. This is real emergency stuff at the highest level. And we want to thank you. So anything I can do, you all know where to call me. (Laughter.) And we will be there for South Carolina. (Applause.) We’re going to be there for this disaster. Thank you all.

I’d like to introduce a man who has truly been working overtime and he has been prepared for this for actually a long time. But over the last four or five days, there’s nobody that’s worked harder than General Livingston. And I just want to thank you. And, General, maybe you could say a few words?

GENERAL LIVINGSTON: Yes, sir. Thank you so much. You know, in South Carolina, we always talk about Team South Carolina. And everybody sitting out here is part of Team South Carolina. And I told that to the President; I said, maybe you ought to call it “Team America” now that (inaudible) is here and O’Shaughnessy has come in, and Lengyel has come in. He says, “No, I like South Carolina.” He wants to be part of our team. (Laughter.) So that’s Team South Carolina. Team South Carolina has been out there from day one with evacuations. We’ve been evacuating people, working search and rescue, taking care of our citizens, welfare checks, security, infrastructure hardening. And that’s everybody sitting in this room doing that.

And now, we’re getting ready for this flood. We’re really working on that infrastructure, getting ready move our people. And we’ve got backup to backup to backup. If we lose a road, which we don’t think we’re going to do, but if we lose a road, we’ve got bridges. We’re going to bring the bridges in. We’ve got aircraft. We are ready to take care of the people of South Carolina who also happen to be part of Team South Carolina.

I do want to give a real quick shout-out to the Governor’s military force, the South Carolina National Guard. While we’re fighting this flood, we got men and women down on the southwest border, we’ve got men and women in Afghanistan, and we’ve got men and women in Kuwait fighting the Syrian battle, taking care of this nation while we also take care of our people.

Mr. President, thank you so much for your support of this great state.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Thank you very much. Appreciate it.” (Applause.)

DIRECTOR WEBSTER: “So to kind of put things in perspective at the local level — first off, thank you to everyone who is involved in this. And many of you in this room are victims as well. And the support that you’ve given this operation, plus those in the field that are supporting what’s going on, not only — you know, all the volunteers, all the staff, everybody, all the coordination between all the jurisdictions. In my opinion, this is the way it’s supposed to be done. And I think we’re showing that each and every day.

You’re making it easy for me. And I’m hoping we’re making it easier for the President and the Governor and the General. Because if you do it right, it does become easier.

We’re looking at a very tough situation in Horry County and the Pee Dee. I don’t want to forget that. Record levels of flooding for three out of the last four years is a tremendous challenge. And I will tell you right now, this has been one of the most challenging events I’ve ever been involved in.

But the team — Team Horry, Team South Carolina, is making it — you know, every chance we can get to make this as good as we can, to save lives as much as possible, protect property as much as possible. And to do the things we can do now so hopefully the recovery will go quicker and we’ll get things up and running as soon as possible.

So we know what we’re facing. We want everybody else to understand what we may be facing. What’s coming is unprecedented. But we want everybody to know this team, all of us — state and federal partners — are behind everybody in Horry County and the Pee Dee region.

And we will get through it. We’ll make it happen. And we’ll all be better for it in the end. And I’m just very proud. And, Mr. President, I just want to thank you for your commitment and help on the federal level for everything you’re doing for us.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Thank you very much. (Applause.) Good luck, everybody. We’re with you all the way, 100 percent. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.” (Applause.)

NORTH CAROLINA – President Donald J. Trump participates in a Briefing on Hurricane Florence in North Carolina on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.

~

Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point
Cherry Point, North Carolina
10:47 A.M. EDT


THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: “Well, thank you very much everybody. We appreciate it very — the job you’ve done has been incredible. Incredible. They’re talking about it all over the world. And we want to keep it going that way, because some of the hard work is now. We’ve gone through very dangerous work, and still dangerous, but some of the hard work is taking place right now, even though it’s nice and beautiful and sunny.


I was talking to the Governor. And, Governor, I want to thank you. A really fantastic — a fantastic job. But in speaking to the Governor, some of the flooding is actually epic. Hard to believe. And we’ve seen all the pictures where houses are literally covered beyond the roof. You don’t even know there’s a house there. And, you know, one of those things. Well, the water is starting to go down now, finally.


But again, I want to thank Governor Cooper. I want to express my gratitude to your Lieutenant Governor, Dan Forest, very importantly. And to all of the state and local leaders who have been really incredible partners throughout this response and recovery.


There’s been a lot of talent. A lot of work and a lot of talent. Without the talent, it doesn’t work either. You had a combination of hard work and that great ability.


We’re joined also by Secretary Nielsen, Administrator McMahon, Director Mulvaney, and FEMA Administrator Long. I want to thank you all. Administrator, great job. Incredible job. The planning that went into this is beyond — beyond belief. So I just want to thank the Secretary and Administrator. Really — really something special.


I also want to thank some great friends of mine and some very talented people that love this state. They love all our states, I think we can say, and that’s Senator Richard Burr. Where’s Richard? Richard? Thank you very much. You have great representatives. Senator Thom Tillis, thank you. Thank you. Where’s Thom? Thank you, Thom. Lindsey Graham. Lindsey? What happened? Lindsey. (Laughter.) Oh, look at Lindsey.


Lindsey, do you want to pull up a chair? What happened to you? (Laughter.)


SENATOR GRAHAM: (Inaudible.)


PRESIDENT TRUMP: You know, we could have — (laughter) — Richard, would you let him sit at our table? I don’t know. Come on. Pull up a chair, Lindsey. But Lindsey has been great.
And Tim Scott. Where’s Tim? Good. I don’t know, I feel pretty guilty. Come over here.


They have been fantastic, all of them — all four. And we’ve had a lot help from Congress, in all fairness. And we’re ready and they’re ready to do whatever we have to do to make this perfect. And that means, unfortunately, the money will be a lot, but it’s going to come as fast as you need it. We’re going to take care of everybody.


Hurricane Florence was one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the Carolinas. One of the most powerful and devastating storms ever to hit our country.


To the families who have lost loved ones, America grieves with you, and our hearts break for you. God bless you. We will never forget your loss. We will never leave your side. We’re with you all way. And to all those impacted by this terrible storm, our entire American family is with you and ready to help. And you will recover.


Most importantly, we give thanks to the incredible first responders, including sheriffs, police officers, firefighters, our great Cajun Navy. They’re all over the place. I put them up online and everybody loved it. Everybody loved it. But they put themselves, all of them, in harm’s way. And what they’ve done to save precious lives of our citizens has been nothing short of incredible.


Nearly 20,000 federal and military personnel are supporting the response efforts along with Southeast Coast, including brave men and women of North Carolina and the National Guard. Now, of course, we’re going to South Carolina right after this, and they have been incredible. And I know you’ve worked and coordinated very well also, Governor, with South Carolina. That’s been a really great partnership.


Together with state and local first responders, they’ve assisted and rescued more than 3,000 people. So we want to thank you. And I will say, I’ve been watching the Coast Guard with all of the helicopters lifting people off rooftops, and it’s been an incredible job you’ve done again. We appreciate it. Thank you very much.
More than 1.6 million meals have been delivered to North Carolina, and more than 400,000 are ready in South Carolina as soon as they’re requested. So we’re standing by with 400,000 meals in South Carolina.


Crews have restored power to over 1.2 million customers already in North and South Carolina. And the power is starting to go on as soon as the water goes down. They’re meeting the demand incredibly well. So I want to thank the power companies and all of the federal workers, but we have to also thank some of the power companies because they’ve been very responsive. As soon as that water goes down, for the most part, people have power.
In moments of despair, we witness the true character of the American people. So true. Citizens all across our country rally together to rescue the stranded, to protect the innocent, and to restore hope to families who have experienced tremendous and unbearable loss.


I want to thank all of the people here today. A very special group of people. Very talented group of people. And we love working with you. It’s an honor to work with you. We’ve done a real job, and we’ve got to continue to do that real job because another phase is coming in right now, and we’re going to meet that phase just like we’ve met phase one.


So, Governor, again, thank you very much. I appreciate it. And to everybody, thank you very much. And whatever we have to do at the federal level, we will be there — and you know that — 100 percent.


And, Secretary Nielsen? Please.”


SECRETARY NIELSEN: “Yes, sir. Well, first I just wanted to start by thanking you for your leadership. I think we would all agree, we appreciate (inaudible) to respond, to direct all of our federal governments, to support our partners.


And what you see there is how that partnership works so well. We’ve got the private sector, we’ve got our congressional members, state and local officials. We certainly have all of our partners at DOD and the National Guard. So we are all working together as it should be, in unity of effort, under your leadership. And we greatly appreciate everyone’s partnership.
If I could, I’d like to ask the Administrator to give us a brief update as to where we are.”


ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “So, Mr. President, as you know, a disaster response like this takes all of us working together, not just coordinating the federal government together, which has come together very well so far. But it takes all of us from neighbor helping neighbor, all the way up to the federal government, to help people overcome what they’ve been through.


I’ve been on the ground yesterday. I’ll be on the ground through tomorrow to make sure that I verify that we’re doing everything that we can right now. This event is not over; the rivers are still cresting. And so we still have a lot of work to do when it comes to the life, safety, and life sustainment mission.


But we’re also simultaneously working on making sure that we stabilize all of the critical lifelines in regards to the infrastructure. So it’s all interconnected. We got to get the roads open to be able to get the power crews into the isolated areas and the flooded areas. And we also have to put a big focus on the hazardous materials, and the health and medical capabilities, and getting them back up and running fully in every community.


One of the things that’s most important is that we’re already pushing forward our disaster survival assistance teams into the fields, into the shelters. We need people to register with 1-800-621-FEMA, or they can download the FEMA app, or they can go through DisasterAssistance.gov.


But more importantly, my job is made easier when a governor like Governor Cooper, Mike Sprayberry, Erik Hooks, have truly done their part to be self-sufficient at the state level. They have been very strong and capable partners. So, thank you.
Thank you, Sir.


SECRETARY NIELSEN: And perhaps we turn it over to the Governor. Governor, as you said so well yesterday, “Sunshine doesn’t need safety.” So we’re right here with you in the midst of a very (inaudible) response.


GOVERNOR COOPER: Well, thank you, Mr. President, for coming to North Carolina as our rescue and recovery continues.
Our rivers are still cresting, and there is still danger for some people. We’re hoping that they can get evacuated and that out first responders continue to make sure that people are brought to safety.


Our state took a gut punch, Mr. President. And our people are still reeling. We’ve lost 27 lives, officially, so far. And some more are under investigation. And we mourn their loss.


We have farmers who have lost significantly their crops. A lot of businesses are down. And, of course, people have lost their homes. We have about 10,000 people right now in shelters. I talked to one the other day who had a rescue out of an apartment in downtown Wilmington. And I will say this: All the way from firefighters in Wilmington, to our state responders, our National Guard, and the United States Coast Guard, there have been some heroic first responders who have saved lives.


We are beginning the process of getting our feet under us, Mr. President. We’re getting water and supplies, hot meals to people. We’re beginning to clear roads, although we have a number of roads continuing to be closed, including parts of Interstate 95 and Interstate 40. And you can imagine what that does to commerce and people trying to get from one place to the next.


We have a lot of power that has been restored, but there are thousands of people who are still waiting to get their power back.
I know that this state has a great economy, great education. We are a beacon in the south. And we have weathered storms before in our state. But, Mr. President, we have never seen one like this. This one has been epic, it has been disastrous, and it has been widespread. It is a storm like no other.


We’re beginning the process, with your federal help and with our local county people; many of them are here today. And we want to thank our local responders and all of the help that they have given to deal with people right there on the ground. But we’re starting to figure out how we will build back. We will do it in a smart and strong way. I’ve been grateful for Secretary Nielsen and for Admiral Buschman. Thank you for your help with the Coast Guard and helping to rescue people.


And, Mr. President, Brock Long, as FEMA Administrator, along with Albie Lewis, who has been here, they are helping us right now significantly. And we’re grateful.


I’ve got a great Emergency Management Director in Mike Sprayberry and my Secretary of Public Safety, Erik Hooks. They’re all onboard. Our Adjutant General of the National Guard, General Lusk, has been doing a fantastic job.


And this Title 10 that we’ve invoked with our joint military exercise, we are grateful to the members of the U.S. military who have stepped up and helped us through this process.


But, Mr. President, we’ve got a long road ahead in the days and the months, and even years ahead, to make sure we build back to where we need to be here in North Carolina. And you’re here, and I’m asking you, sir, for your help, every step of the way. All of these federal agencies are going to have to help us in cutting red tape and making sure we can be smart about this rebuilding process.


We still understand that people have a lot of immediate needs, and that’s going to be critically important over the next few days and weeks. But long-term rebuild, I know the resiliency of North Carolinians. We have an amazing state. I know that we can come back stronger than ever. But we’re going to need your help.
And thank you for coming to listen to this.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: And I’ll be there. Congressman, thank you. Thank you, Roy. We will be there 100 percent. And all of the folks from the federal government that are around the table, they’re confirming it. That’s why we started early and we’ll be here late.
And we want to thank the great job you’ve done and all of your people. Thank you very much.


I’d like to maybe ask Richard Burr to say a few words, your great senator who’s done an incredible job. And then we’re going to ask Thom Tillis to say a few words. These are two people that love this state and they love the country.
Richard?
SENATOR BURR: Well, Mr. President, I’m going to say to this group exactly what I said to you on the plane. I’ve been doing disasters in North Carolina as an elected representative for now 25 years. I’ve never seen the preparation, the coordination, the collaboration between the federal, state, and local government like I’ve seen prior to this event.


If we do half as good in the response as we did in the preparation, then North Carolinians are going to be in good hands.


The challenge is, quite frankly, going to be this: We’re faced with things in this event that we haven’t been faced with before. And the ability to have the Coast Guard and DOD assets in this state, upfront, before the event, has enabled those at a local, state, and federal level to adjust what plans we might have had in place, and deliver water and food and essentials in a way that we could get into any community in this state. Without that level of collaboration, we’d have people that were in serious, serious problems much worse than today.


And I am grateful for the federal component but I am as grateful, Governor, for the way the state emergency management folks and first responders, who in some cases have been volunteers in local communities that had a boat, aided their neighbors. And that’s what’s so great about this state.


Thank you, Mr. President.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you, Richard, very much. And Tom?


SENATOR TILLIS: Well, just very briefly, just to echo everything that Senator Burr said, we’re now moving towards the next step, which is getting the initial funding for recovery. We’ve made a request. We’ll be moving forward with trying to get the money in place for some of the initial recovery. But then we’ll work very closely with the Governor.


Governor, thank you for being so prompt on getting the initial need in. That was very instructive to the appropriation request. We’ll continue to work with state and local authorities.
And just thank all the volunteers, as well — the Red Cross and everybody else who have come together. And Congressman Rouzer, every one of the counties in his district were affected. He’s been working hard. He’s been on the ground the entire time. And this is when North Carolina and America is at its best. We’re all coming together and working for the people in North Carolina and South Carolina.


And, President, thank you for your leadership.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. Thank you, Thom. Thank you. And for you leadership.


As Thom and Richard said, we’re getting all teed up for a lot of money to come down to the area. You’re going to need it. And we have it, and we will be supplying it. And there will be nothing left undone. You’ll have everything you need.


So we’re going to have — it’s going to be probably a rough two weeks, and then it will get a little bit softer. But it’s going to be — people don’t realize how a very difficult phase is beginning probably today with a beautiful sunshine. So your two representatives and your — by the way, your congressman, are working very hard. So we’ll have it all taken care of. Thank you very much, Congressman. Thank you very much. Appreciate it very much. Great job.


Does anybody have anything to say? Any of our folks?
Administrator McMahon, would you say something please?


ADMINISTRATOR MCMAHON: Thank you very much, Mr. President. First of all, I’m a North Carolina girl. I was born and reared in New Bern. Both my parents were civil service employees right here at Cherry Point Air Base. So I feel like I’ve come home.
I’m the Administrator of SBA, and I just want to let all of you know that where SBA comes in is on the front side, but we are immediately right there. As a matter of fact, we’re already staged at East Carolina to deploy our folks into the field to get people’s businesses back up and running, to get them back in their homes. This is the time that SBA actually makes the loans and not just guarantees the loans.


So please go to SBA.gov and click on the “Disaster” banner. It will take you to the right place. We’ve already approved, I think, just a little — fewer than 10 applications already for mortgages and loans for businesses. So they’re low interest, they’re long-term fixed rates. So please allow us to help you. Go online and start getting your applications in so that we can help our communities and our homeowners and even renters who have lost personal property in the storm get back on their feet.


Thank you, sir.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you, Linda, very much. Anybody? Any questions? Statements? Congressman?


REPRESENTATIVE ROUZER: First of all, let me thank you for being here. You have a great heart for the American people. That’s one of the things I like so much about you. And it just really means a lot for you to be here at this particular time.


We have a lot of folks that are really, really hurting. And I got a couple of points I want to make, but before I forget, though, I want to thank Brock Long and his team. I’ve been with him for the past several days. They’re doing incredible work. Everybody around this table is just doing a lot of collaborative, great work together.
Your Admiral here at Coast Guard — I walked in the airport, RDU Airport, the other day, and saw doctors and nurses that were stranded, trying to find a way back to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. And this guy here helped us get it cleared to get them on that C-130 and take them to ILM Airport.
And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a CEO of a hospital that was happier than our CEO at Hanover Regional the other day.
So your team is doing an incredible, incredible job. A few things I want to mention: Housing is so critically important, as you know. Infrastructure, incredibly important. I serve on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, as you know. Really looking forward to working with you as we move forward on rebuilding our infrastructure, not just here post-storm, but we’ve got to do a lot of pre-mitigation work for the next storm.


You know, these storms aren’t going to end. They’re going to keep coming. And the more we can prepare, the more we can clean out these rivers, these ditches, all the creeks and streams, they’re all — they’re all stopped up. That’s part of the reason why we have such a monumental flood. My district, as Senator Tillis said, eight of my nine counties are completely — almost completely underwater. They’re all major disaster areas. And so I think rebuilding this infrastructure is going to be critically, critically important.


Of course, housing is number one. Agriculture in my district — huge component of this state — $87 billion industry. I see Steve Troxler here in the audience — our Commissioner of Agriculture. We’ve got to have more than just a new farm bill. We’ve got to have a real disaster package for agriculture as well.
And then our beach communities: Our beaches, our inlets and our waterways are a key component of infrastructure in this country. It’s vital to tourism in my district, as you know. And of course, I know you’re quite familiar with Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington and that area, and Brunswick County, Pender County. All these counties need a tremendous amount of help. And I just thank you and appreciate you being here and appreciate all the work of your entire team — not only now, but as we move into the future.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Appreciate it very much, Congressman.


COMMISSIONER WHITE: Mr. President.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes, please

COMMISSIONER WHITE: My name is Woody White, and I represent 220,000 citizens of New Hanover County. I want to thank you for coming here. I’d like to echo the comments that were very ably made by David and the others around the table about what’s been done. And I also want to share with you the hope and optimism that our people have about the economy that you’ve created, about the people that you put back to work. Because all these next two or three or four phases of recovery are better because of the preparations, the economy that you have created, and we appreciate it.


I have been out in our community since this storm before it began, in it every day since it was here. And folks are cutting trees, putting power lines up, feeding their neighbors, loving each other, caring for each other, and they have incredible hope and optimism in the future.


It tells me something that you brought the Administrator of the Small Business Association here today, that you’re thinking about the future too. I own a small business, and they’re the lifeblood of our economy in New Hanover County. And we thank you for being here and for your leadership.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s really nice. I appreciate it very much. The economy is, fortunately, doing really well, and I would say maybe the best economy our country has ever had. So that’s important.


And we want to get everybody back to work so they can, you know, take (inaudible) — because this area has been very badly damaged. But we’ll get it up and working again, Governor, very quickly. I have no doubt about it.
Anybody else? Anybody? Yes.


MAYOR JONES JR.: Mr. President, hi, I’m Jerry Jones, the Mayor of Morehead City.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Hi, Jerry.


MAYOR JONES JR.: And just on behalf of a grateful community — and not just talking about Morehead, but talking about coastal North Carolina — your presence here today means a whole lot to all of us. It means, you know, we’re not left stranded alone on this island. It means the federal government is here helping us, along with the state government and many local governments.
And being a mayor of a small town and having to — being the boots on the ground and walking the food lines with my constituents — and not just my constituents; I’ve got people from outside the county. Just building up something that you said earlier about community pride and spirit — I mean, the community spirit is, from what I’ve witnessed, is as high as it’s ever been.


PRESIDENT: TRUMP Great.


MAYOR JONES JR.: It is — it is not — and what I’ve learned also, that communities aren’t just in neighborhoods, they’re not just in towns and states; I’m talking about a national community. People have come from all over the nation to come to Carteret County to assist us. And just on my way up here, I had three phone calls from people throughout the state that wanted to bring provisions down to Carteret County. And so I’m helping organize that.
And when I walked through the lines of the people — and I have to say this: My first experience, I’ve never stood in line before to get a drink of water or a meal or sandwich or any way. The people, you know, when I ask them, my first question to them is, “How are you? Are you safe?” And they said, “Yeah, we’re safe. However, my neighbor, you know, they lost everything they had. You know, my house is under water.” And my response to them always is, “Yes, but at least we are here today talking about it.” And they always just give praise to God when that’s mentioned.
And so I’ll know we’ll get through this together. It’s baby steps, as we all mentioned. Although it happened overnight, the rebuilding is not going to be overnight. But from the state and local level, the federal level, we’ll make it happen.


And again, just the presence of everybody around this table is going to mean a whole lot to everybody affected with Hurricane Florence. So, thank you.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much, Mayor. Appreciate it.


COMMISSIONER MANSFIELD: Mr. President, Mark Mansfield, Chairman of the Carteret County Commissioners. And I want to thank you and your team for coming down with Governor Cooper, Senator Tillis, Senator Burr, and other representatives.
And I’d especially like to thank Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest. He came down the day after the hurricane and visited us personally at the emergency operations center.


Things are still dire in Carteret County. We have — over half of our whole county is without power. We obviously have had the river and the creek flooding — storm surge flooding. And Williston to Stacy, they had probably 8 to 12 feet of water in homes.


These people have been displaced, and we are temporarily sheltering, neighbors are sheltering, but we’re going to need help with shelter.


The big thing is public safety. We haven’t had trash pickup since the Wednesday before the storm. They’ve cut and run. We’re getting back open now. But for health reasons, we need to make sure that we get all of your guys’ help to expedite the boots on the ground.


I mean, I know protocols and procedures — you’ve got manuals — but as I look around, I see the military force here, anybody who’s done training, you know training is one thing, but being in the foxhole when the bullets are coming by your head are completely different. And we hope we will have all your continued support to help our boots on the ground, facilitate the resources, and help the people of our county and the surrounding counties in Eastern North Carolina.


I thank all you guys again. We appreciate all you’re doing. And we’ll probably be asking you for more. Thank you.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. Appreciate it. Excuse me?


MS. GOOD: (Inaudible.)


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes, please.


MS. GOOD: Mr. President, thank you so much for being here, for coming to North Carolina. The story for Duke Energy is also a story of partnership. And so I’m pleased to report that we’ve restored a million and a half citizens for power. We have 150,000 to go. And we will not leave until that power is restored.
Now, we had the opportunity to work with so many around the table that have made it possible with the Governor and his administration, with Director Sprayberry, with the federal agencies, Secretary Nielsen, Under Secretary Krebs, not only the planning but the resources necessary to restore power on this scale. So we thank you for the leadership and the partnership. It’s made it possible. And we’re anxious to get 150,000 more citizens back.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Good. Thank you very much. And how is Lake Norman, that area? How is that doing?


MS. GOOD: Good.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s doing good?


MS. GOOD: But still 10 or 12 inches of rain.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: I love that area. I can’t tell you why, but I love that area.


MS. GOOD: It’s very nice. Thank you.


PRESIDENT TRUUMP: It’s been really terrific.


GENERAL O’SHAUGHNESSY: Mr. President.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes.


GENERAL O’SHAUGHNESSY: Mr. President, Secretary Mattis gave us very clear direction from the Department of Defense to make sure that we anticipate every need that the states could have so we could help the citizens.


Governor Cooper’s team here was phenomenal to help us understand what exactly those needs were going to be so we could pre-posture and be ready for immediate response. So, hats off to Governor Cooper and the broader team here in North Carolina.
And also, at FEMA, Brock Long was able to help us coordinate that federal response that was seamlessly tied into the state and local efforts. And I’d like to highlight, Mr. President, that there are 28 different states that have contributed to the National Guard, through the EMACs — the compacts that they have with the state of North Carolina, between North Carolina and South Carolina — and that just shows the strength of the National Guard as well, Mr. President.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. Great job, General. Appreciate it.
Okay. Thank you very much. Let’s get back to work.

1 Becoming –An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African-American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.”

 

2 The Trump Prophesies – In November of 2016, the world witnessed the impossible. Nearly every household in America was tuned in to the election feeds, and every update pointed to a loss for the Republican Party. But when the map of the states flipped red in the final hour, there were a select few who weren’t surprised. They had always known Trump was going to win. He was chosen for such a time as this. The prophecy had said so.


This prophet, this reserved man of God, was retired firefighter Mark Taylor. The word given by the Holy Spirit was delivered on April 28, 2011 in the middle of the most debilitating sickness a man could ever experience. When the prophecy later fell into the hands of New York Times bestsellers Don and Mary Colbert, God used this new team of passionate individuals to lead the nation into a fervent prayer chain that would accomplish one of the most incredible miracles our country has ever seen.


But Trump s victory was only the beginning…
What is coming next for the most powerful nation on earth today? Mark Taylor has more to say.


In THE TRUMP PROPHECIES readers will discover:
*How the Lord can and will use anyone regardless of education, background, or health to communicate His message to the Church of Christ


*What led to the miracle of the 2016 election, the role of we the people for the will of God in the future, and what the Body of Christ needs to do to keep His blessing on our nation
*How the enemy has utilized techniques of distraction to keep the Body’s focus off of God and onto internal, demoralizing disputes and how this can be overcome
*Astounding, world-altering changes in our US government

Mark sees on the horizon
*The positive message of hope and encouragement that points to fresh methods of spreading the Gospel to the lost

Unafraid to speak the truth and unwilling to back down, Bannon has made headlines in recent months for slamming the Trump administration’s approach to North Korea and China, backing controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore at all costs, and calling members of Trump’s circle—including Trump’s son Don Jr. and his son-in-law Jared Kushner—”treasonous” for meeting with Russians during the election.

PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP
AND FEMA ADMINISTRATOR BROCK LONG
ON HURRICANE FLORENCE RESPONSE MEASURES

The White House Oval Office

3:13 P.M. EDT

 

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DONALD J. TRUMP: “Okay, thank you very much. I’ve received a briefing from Secretary Nielsen, Administrator Long, and my senior staff regarding Hurricane Florence and other tropical systems that will soon impact the United States and its territories. The safety of American people is my absolute highest priority. We are sparing no expense. We are totally prepared. We’re ready. We’re as ready as anybody has ever been.

And it looks to me, and it looks to all of — a lot of very talented people that do this for a living, like this is going to be a storm that’s going to be a very large one — far larger than we’ve seen in perhaps decades. Things can change, but we doubt they will at this stage. It’s a pretty late stage. We doubt they’re going to be veering very far off course.

The places that are in the way and in the most jeopardy would be Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina — that area. And again, they haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in 25, 30 years — maybe ever. It’s tremendously big and tremendously wet. Tremendous amounts of water.

So I’ve spoken with the governors of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. They’re prepared. We’re prepared. We’re working very well in conjunction with the governors.

I’d like to ask Brock Long, our Administrator, who’s done so well for us in Texas and Florida — we have something that could very well be very similar to Texas, in the sense that it’s tremendous amounts of water. Texas was the one that had, I would say, to this point, Brock, probably more water than we’ve ever seen in a storm or a hurricane. And it went out for seconds and thirds. We’ve never seen anything like it.

But FEMA, as you know, did a fantastic job, and a fantastic job also in Florida. And I’d like to ask Brock, if you would, to just say a few words to the media as to where it is now, what’s going to be happening, and how well prepared we are.”

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “Thank you, Mr. President. Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence is setting out to be a devastating event to the Carolinas, and potentially Virginia as well.

So as you can see, they’re forecasting a major landfalling storm — Category 3 or 4 storm at landfall. The biggest hazard that we’re worried about is storm surge. That’s the primary driver of the evacuations that are underway by the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia right now. But as this system comes in and makes landfall, during the weekend it’s forecast to stall out, lose its strength and its steering currents, and drop copious amounts of rainfall.

Unfortunately, the remnants of Gordon passed through the Mid-Atlantic over the weekend and dropped a lot of rain, saturating rivers. So, Hurricane Florence, as it comes in and puts anywhere between 20 and 30 inches more in isolated areas, could create a lot of inland flooding.

So, right now, sir, we’re supporting the governors with achieving their life safety evacuation and movements. We’re focused on mass care and sheltering. And then we’ll be focused on helping them to execute their response and recovery goals.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “What are the chances that it veers off course and the hit won’t be so direct? What are the chances of that?”

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “Unfortunately, I believe there’s quite a bit of certainty in the track forecast because the forward speed is picking up. It’s getting faster. And when systems do that, the track forecast becomes a lot more accurate. And I think the expectation needs to be set with the citizens in this area that, if you’ve been asked to leave, get out of the areas that are going to flood, and get into a facility that can withstand the winds.

Let’s set the expectations as well: This has an opportunity of being a very devastating storm. The power is going to be off for weeks. You’re going to be displaced from your home in the coastal areas. And there will be flooding in the inland areas as well.

So these are going to be statewide events. The hazards will be statewide.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Thanks. You wanted to show us this one then?”

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “Yeah. This is a seven-day rainfall graphic. As you can see, the pink areas and the purple areas indicate 20 inches. That’s mean area rainfall; that’s an average rainfall amount. But you may see isolated amounts greater — into the 30-inch range — over Virginia, the central portions of Virginia and West Virginia. And these impacts are — they’re going to be through the Mid-Atlantic. So we’re coordinating not only with South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, but other Mid-Atlantic states, all the way to Delaware.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Good. And it has been great coordination. I have to tell you, the states have been terrific. Everybody is working together. The governors and all of their representatives have been absolutely fantastic. And FEMA — there’s nobody like you people. I mean, what they’re doing is incredible.

Do you have any questions for Secretary Nielsen or for Brock Long, please? Anybody?”

QUESTION: “What lesson do we take from what happened in Puerto Rico? How do we apply the lessons we took from Puerto Rico?”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Well, I think Puerto Rico was incredibly successful. Puerto Rico was, actually, our toughest one of all because it’s an island, so you just — you can’t truck things onto it. Everything is by boat. We moved a hospital into Puerto Rico — a tremendous military hospital in the form of a ship. You know that.

And I actually think — and the Governor has been very nice. And if you ask the Governor, he’ll tell you what a great job. I think probably the hardest one we had, by far, was Puerto Rico because of the island nature. And I actually think it was one of the best jobs that’s ever been done with respect to what this is all about.

Puerto Rico got hit not with one hurricane but with two. And the problem with Puerto Rico is their electric grid and their electric generating plant was dead before the storms ever hit. It was in very bad shape. It was in bankruptcy. It had no money. It was largely — you know, it was largely closed.

And when the storm hit, they had no electricity — essentially before the storm. And when the storm hit, that took it out entirely.

The job that FEMA and law enforcement and everybody did, working along with the Governor in Puerto Rico, I think was tremendous. I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success.

Texas, we had been given A-plusses for. Florida, we’ve been given A-plusses for. I think, in a certain way, the best job we did was Puerto Rico, but nobody would understand that. I mean, it’s harder to understand. It was very hard — a very hard thing to do because of the fact they had no electric. Before the storms hit, it was dead, as you probably know.

So we’ve gotten a lot of receptivity, a lot of thanks for the job we’ve done in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was very important.

And, by the way, speaking of Puerto Rico, they’re going to be affected, pretty much, pretty soon by something else that’s on its way. Is that right?”

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “Potentially, Hurricane Isaac right now is tracking south of the island, but we are — we have several thousand people inside Puerto Rico right now working on long-term recovery that have shifted to the response mode to monitor as Isaac passes to the south.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “We do not want to see Hurricane Isaac hit Puerto Rico. That’s all we need. But we have a big hurricane out there, and it’s sort of skirting along Puerto Rico and the edge of Puerto Rico. That would not be good.”

QUESTION: “Mr. President, how much money do you think you’ll need for recovery efforts to this next hurricane? And do you have that already, or do you need to get it?”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Well, we have it currently. Obviously, these are all unanticipated, so we’ll go to Congress. Congress will be very generous, because we have no choice. This is the United States. And whether it’s Texas or Florida or, frankly, if it’s Virginia — because Virginia, it’s looks like it’s very much in the path. Maryland, by the way, could be affected — very seriously affected — just to add. It’s a little bit outside of the path. And then, of course, South Carolina and North Carolina. I think that any amounts of money, whatever it takes, we’re going to do.

But we’re already set up. We have tremendous trucking systems, we have food systems. We have a lot of — a lot of contractors waiting. But for the most part, it’s been handled by FEMA, and also we’ve coordinated locally. We have food for days. We have emergency equipment and generators for many days. We should be in great shape.

Now, I’ve also heard it could be 21 and 22 inches. If you can imagine what that is — 22 inches of rain. It is not something that we’ve had. Certainly, we’ve never had this on the East Coast. So — but I think we’re very well prepared and very well set up. Wouldn’t you say?”

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “Yeah. I think this storm right here is very similar to Hurricane Hugo and almost like a combination of Hurricane Hugo in ’89 and Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

But look, successful disaster response and recovery is one that’s locally executed, state managed, and federally supported. So what FEMA is doing is pre-positioning the federal government’s assets to support each one of those governors that are about to be impacted with achieving their response and recovery goals. And that’s the way emergency management and disaster response works best.

I also think — I’d like to point out that what we learned last year is we have got to build a true culture of preparedness within our citizens here in America. This is a partnership, and it takes anything from neighbor helping neighbor all the way to the federal government when it comes to correctly responding and recovering.”

QUESTION: “Can we ask you about the (inaudible) and power outages? What things are right now to –“

ADMINISTRATOR LONG: “That’s a great question. So FEMA doesn’t own the power grids in any one of these states. A lot of them are owned by the private industry. So what we have are business emergency operation center calls. We’re concentrating with the private vendors to make sure that they have strong mutual aid programs in place. And we set up incident support bases to help stage power crews coming in from other states. And largely, it’s FEMA’s job to get out of the way to make sure that the private power companies can get into these areas to set up their grid. We don’t own it. We don’t own it.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “But unlike Puerto Rico, you have very strong power companies. They’re very powerful, very well managed in the sense that they have — they have tremendous overcapacity. They are going to do a great job. They also have made contracts with other power companies that won’t be affected, and they’re going to be coming in — just to answer your question, they’ll be coming in to the various states that will be affected.

They’re going to be coming in very strongly, and they’re already lining up. They’ll be here probably, for the most part, tomorrow, or shortly before the storm hits. So they’re going to be in great shape. These are, really, states that have very, very strong power authorities. “

QUESTION: “What’s your message, Mr. President, to people who might not have evacuated yet?”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Well, that’s very risky. I mean, again, we’ve never seen anything quite like this on the East Coast, at least. And if it turns out to be as bad — you know, we go out there; you have people that actually go fly through these storms. These are very brave people. But they fly through.

And from what I’m hearing, the sites that they’re seeing have not been seen on the East Coast before. So I would say everybody should get out. I mean, you have to listen to your local authorities and — whether you’re upland or downland. But depending on where you are, you have to listen and you have to get out. If they want you to get out — because it’s going to be impossible to have people get in there, whether it’s law enforcement or FEMA or anybody else. Once this thing hits, it’s going to be really, really bad along the coast. Okay?

Anything else?”

QUESTION: “Do you believe Rob Porter and Gary Cohn’s denials today?”

PRESDIENT TRUMP: “Ah, well, you shouldn’t be talking about that right now because it doesn’t matter. But I really appreciate their statement. Their statement was excellent. And they both said that beautiful, which shows that the book is just a piece of fiction.

Thank you very much. I think we’re very well prepared. And thank you all very much. Appreciate it.”

QUESTION: “Do you mind giving us an update on the trade talks? “

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Trade talks are coming along very well. We’re dealing with China, as you know. We’ve taken a very tough stand on China, I would say, to put it mildly. And with Canada, they want to make a deal very much. Me? If we make it, that’s good. And if we don’t make it, that’s okay too. Canada wants to make a deal. We’ll see if we can get them into the deal we already have with Mexico. I think the deal with Canada is coming along very well, and we’ve all been dealing in good faith. Okay?

Thank you everybody.”
