Graham Accompanies President Trump on Survey of Hurricane Florence Damage and Response

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after surveying Hurricane Florence damage and response in South Carolina and North Carolina with President Trump.

“I truly appreciate President Trump for taking the time to visit South Carolina and North Carolina today. 

“More importantly, I appreciate all the help and assistance he and his team have provided before, during, and after Hurricane Florence.  The Trump Administration has had an ‘All-Hands-on-Deck’ approach to this since Day 1. For that, I am truly grateful. 

“In addition, I continue to be thoroughly impressed by the response from Team South Carolina.  Led by Governor McMaster, Team South Carolina has been working morning, noon and night to help those who have been devastated by this storm.  Their commitment to our state is inspiring and we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude.   

“My prayers remain with those who are and continue to suffer from the impacts of Hurricane Florence.  They have my commitment that I will work with President Trump and our congressional delegation to ensure the needs of our state are met as we recover and rebuild from the impact of this terrible storm.”
