President Trump Serves Food To Hurricane Victims, But Guess Who Paid For It

On Thursday, the First Family demonstrated their solidarity and will to help victims affected by Hurricane Irma, not by only serving in every department, but also by providing and paying for meals for people affected by the storm in Naples, Florida.

Initially, Fox news reported that the Federal Emergency Management Agency paid for the aforementioned meals, but stood corrected shortly after.

“So moments ago I said that the food was provided by FEMA, as often they will do, but this is a nuance now,” host Faulkner said. “The president and the first lady now are hosting this event with their own catering, if you will.”

“They paid for the food this is being distributed right now,” co-host Sandra Smith added to clarify.

“That’s awesome,” Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe said. “I commend him for being there today, shaking their hand, looking them in the eye and giving them that hope and belief that things are going to get better.”

“This is what a president does,” Faulkner added.

In addition, First Lady Melania Trump shared a twitter video from aboard Marine One that monitored the area prior to Trump’s arrival.

“There is much work to be done, but America is with you Florida!” she wrote.

Both Trump and Melania decided to donate $1 million, divided in 12 different charities that collected Hurricane relief means.

Some of these organizations included the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, with $300,000 being transferred to each.

Others, like Reach out America and Samaritan’s Purse, were given $100,000 a piece, while the remaining eight received $25,000 respectively.

The relief funds are largely monitored by FEMA, an organization working tightly with each and every of these aid groups.

Are there enough ‘Thank yous’ to give to our extraordinary president?

    What is being done to help the fires in the Northwest, primarily Montana? So far nothing! It is time someone did something to help! Montana has more than a million acres burned. We live in Idaho and for weeks now we’ve been told to stay inside because of the unhealthy air quality. If we go out, wear a special mask to filter out the smoke but not to stay out very long. Wash up and change clothes when we come in. Children can’t go outside for recess or to play sports. I think it is unfair to ignore the Northwest when we have natural disasters also.

    Here’s an idea….all of the resources being spent to make sure everyone and their mother knows that Trump spent his “own money” on meals for flood victims, and make no mistake, resources are being used, why not use that money for further assistance? Breaking your arms patting yourself and said president on the back…give me a break! Charity donations are tax deductible and you’re a fool if you think he doesn’t know that. This would be a truly selfless act if they didn’t tell anyone who would listen all about it. Typical.

    Meanwhile, Hollywood elites earn 44,000,000 dollars for hurricane relief.

    Notice in the pic, even though homes are flooded (the flood waters will recede) there is little or no structural damage to the houses. TV has shown nothing but structures that are totally destroyed by Irma. TV does not show structures that did not sustain structural damage as is the case with hundreds of thousands of homes throughout Florida. TV coverage of hurricane damage is bogus at best.

    It’s a shame the the American Red Cross will will only use about 10% on the Florida Disaster Relief Funds and pocket the remainder of the funds! They are in business to make money not helping the victems!!!!

    This president and first lady are doing exactly what they should be doing. And they (he) could do so much more for our country if the “you know whos” would get of their “you know what” and get busy supporting him and our country.
    Many thank yous and prayers for you, Mr. Trump and very first lady.

    the reason they cant control the leaks is because Obama allowed mulsim’s to infiltertate the CIA the FBI and every other part of goverment in his eight year mission of destroying our nation. Remove or enemies thed muslims and you’ll stop the leaks and fix the problems, you know a goverment can’t run when the enemy is trying to destroy it!

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
