'It's historic, its epic, but I tell you Texas can handle anything': Trump and Melania lift spirits with visit to Corpus Christi



President Trump really juiced Texas with his leadership and support. 
Texas has a tough road ahead of them.  But, if there's any place in the world that can handle such a tragic event, it's Texas!
Daily Mail reports President Donald Trump backed off his claim that Texas would be 'up and running very, very quickly' after Tropical Storm Harvey on Tuesday afternoon.

The president mused during a briefing at the Texas Department of Public Safety that the flood waters in southern Texas, which has seen record-breaking rainfall, might never recede.

'Nobody's ever seen this much water. The wind was pretty horrific, in particular, but the water has never been seen like this, to this extent. And it's, maybe someday going to disappear. We keep waiting,' Trump said this afternoon in Austin.

His wife soon followed with an official statement of her own. 

'The effects of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in Texas, Louisiana, and other parts of the country for many months and years to come,' she said. 

Areas east of Houston, Texas have been drenched with more than 50 inches of rain. The storm continues to hover over southeastern Texas and parts of southwestern Louisiana.

Earlier, Trump told a crowd of Texans who'd lined up outside a Corpus Christi firehouse he was visiting that the recovery effort is 'going well' and his administration is 'here to take care of you.' 
'We love you. You are special,' the president said to cheers from onlookers. 'This is historic, it's epic, what happened, but you know what, it happened in Texas. Texas can handle anything.'

The president held up the Texas flag as he delivered the impromptu remarks to the throng of cheering Corpus Christi residents after a briefing on relief efforts from emergency responders.
