Tale of Two Presidents: Donald Trump versus Barack Obama on Louisiana Flooding (Video)
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took time on Saturday to visit flood victims in Houston, Texas and Louisiana.
It was their second trip to the flood damaged region.
The people of Louisiana lined the streets to see the president and First Lady.

President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.
In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”
The guidance’s frameworks “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”
Needless to say, some Louisiana residents were offended.
For the record…
Trump went to Louisiana as a candidate last year too!
