Vice President Mike Pence spent the weekend with President Trump and his Cabinet making plans to address Hurricane Irma and addressing other major governance concerns. On Sunday Pence visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters to get an understanding of the progress of the federal government’s relief effort.
Pence was caught by reporters at FEMA and said something that should give everyone faith in the Trump Administration:
“Wherever Hurricane Irma goes, we’ll be there first [with] the resources and support to save lives and to help and recover.”
“This is a very dangerous storm, life-threatening. … Clearly, the briefing this morning caused the president to have great concern. … The people of Florida need to know that our hearts and prayers and all of our efforts will be with them until this storm passes.”

Do we have some great people in the White House or what? This is an administration that is doing its utmost to protect American lives and mitigate all possible damage.
For his part, President Trump has been monitoring the storm closely from Fort David and tweeting out words of support and evacuation advice to those in Irma’s path. One tweet Saturday evening was particularly reassuring:
The U.S. Coast Guard, FEMA and all Federal and State brave people are ready. Here comes Irma. God bless everyone!
