U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to reporters as he and First Lady Melania Trump depart the White House in Washington on their way to view storm damage in Florida, U.S., September 14, 2017.

First lady Melania Trump, along with second lady Karen Pence, traveled to Texas on Wednesday to visit with first responders and check on Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Behind a podium with a "Texas Rebuilds" sign, Trump said her husband's administration collaborated with the governor of Texas to make sure the area received resources for recovery.

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".
