"Looks like First Lady Melania Trump is Texas savvy", Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote. Bush stated that 600 of these temporary homes have been provided to Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.

- 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.

Later, the first lady surprised the traveling press pool with lunch. She & Karen Pence dined at @Whataburger today with my wife the First Lady of Texas.

After they fueled up, the ladies joined Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott in greeting first responders.

"I want to thank Mario and Rosemary Zamorano, and your wonderful children for allowing us to tour what was once your family home", Trump said to the couple.

She continued, "As we approach Christmas this holiday season, your family is an example of what it means to have hope and recognize your blessings".

The motorcade arrived at Charlie Marshall Elementary School at Aransas Pass in the afternoon and they visited a fourth-grade class. Trump shook hands with the students, who were being taught the difference between facts and opinions. They are here for ongoing help for #HurricaneHarvey. After, they stopped off for food.

The two will end their visit with a stop at a local food bank to meet with volunteers and help sort boxes.
