Trump’s campaign urges donations for Texas relief

President Trump’s campaign sent out an email Tuesday morning in an effort to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. 

‘The campaign wants to encourage all Americans to unite in this tragic moment as a nation to help our fellow Americans in need,’ it said, offering ‘prayers and support’ from the president and first lady Melania Trump. 

The email directed supporters to donate money to seven different charities, three for humans and four to assist animals in Texas and Louisiana, the two states most impacted by the storm and catastrophic flooding.

‘Americans are at their finest when our friends and neighbors are in need – and the need in Texas is great and will continue to be for a long time,’ she continued. ‘Anyone who is able to support relief efforts should donate if they can.’ 

‘Victims and those on the front lines of this unprecedented disaster, including first responders from around the nation, disaster relief workers, and regular citizens rushing to aid our fellow Americans, are all in our thoughts and prayers,’ the president’s daughter-in-law added.

To help the people of Texas and Louisiana, the Trump campaign pointed supporters to the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and the United Way. 

To help the animals of Texas and Louisiana, the Trump campaign referred donors to the SPCA of both Texas and Louisiana, along with the Humane Society in Houston and for the state of Louisiana.  

The email also warned Trump’s supporters of fraudulent charities, referring them to monitoring organizations, just to be sure. 

The president and first lady were surveying some of the damage on Tuesday, landing Air Force One in Corpus Christie, as Houston continued to get hammered with more rain. 

‘It’s historic, its epic, but I tell you it happened in Texas and Texas can handle anything,’ Trump said at an event in a Texas fire house Tuesday afternoon.
