Shining a spotlight on a national crisis, like Trump has done, will garner more support for the people affected than letting FEMA operate in the fog like they did during Katrina.

Do you realize the shear amount of resources it takes to have a president show up somewhere, regardless of the reason?

Security, traffic control, etc. Those resources are better used addressing the problem at hand and not catering to the POTUS.


Yes, we know.

But Bush still hated black people.


What the hell are you talking about?

Inspiring hope really doesn't have a price tag.

Facts?

You're the one who thinks the 1st amendment applies to nationals of foreign countries, and also thinks you "opinion" that Trump has ulterior motives is a "fact".

The only facts here are that Trump donated both time and money to the victims of LA and Hillary/Obama thought vacation and celebrating his birthday were and are more important.

So you would be willing to waste resources on some hope...and change?

Pence, the Indiana governor who once served in Congress, "led Republican efforts to hold up Katrina relief funds (in 2005) because they were not offset with cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare." Richmond said he hopes "Trump and Pence will be just as vocal and visible when Congress reconvenes in September. That is when we'll find out who is genuinely interested in our long term recovery."

Everyone already knows it a "national crisis". The media does that.

If Obama showed up, we would be talking about that and not the crisis.

People live and die by hope inspiring it is never a small thing. Even dying with hope is better than the sad death of dying without.

No, the First Amendment applies to the f-ing government of the United States of America, you know, that government that your boy Trump thinks can pass laws or make regulations that affect a RELIGION.

Keep worshiping at the altar of Trump ... some of us prefer reality.

I think he should have shown up to reassure the people that the relief efforts would be adequate. Past relief efforts don't inspire confidence.

How tacky.

So you would waste resources in order for politicians to instill a bit of hope, and not spend those resources helping the problem at hand (flooding, rebuilding, etc)?

Well, that makes no sense.

Lol.

Obama has wasted;

2M in taxpayer money on democratic fundraising in LA
1M in golf in Palm Springs
Near 8M on a family vacation in Hawaii
8M on a family vacation to Ireland
60-100M on family trip to Africa
1.1M on a 2013 family vacation in Martha's Vineyard

and on and on.

Yet to support victims of a national tragedy, you think it'd suddenly be a waste.

Meanwhile Trump is donating his own time and money. Bravo to a true American leader. One throws taxpayer money down the toilet for family vacations and the other is donating his own money to help victims. A true patriot.

Altruistic or strategic, Trump hit this one out of the park.

Perception plays in Peoria. Hillary and Obama will be seen as "Jonny-come-lately's"

Be honest, nobody gave a second thought about Louisiana until Trump got on the scene. The fact that we are talking about this on ATS right now should be an indication.

You are forgetting about the local resources needed to facilitate his visit.

Local police, blocking traffic, etc.

Trump doesn't pay for that. He is the cause of that expense, just like when any high-profile politician goes somewhere.

Those local resources would have been better spent elsewhere.

But good on Trump for donating some stuff. Considering he is making money off this campaign, that seems kind of empty.

Right, no "politics as usual" to see here. I see that our motto has been completely discarded by many ... embracing ignorance, rather than denying it.

Oh, and as far as the supposed "Trump Humanitarianism" ... you may want to check out an old movie:

Omen III: The Final Conflict.



Always an ulterior motive. What it must be like to live in a constant state of pessimism.


Especially one that relates helping people in need in Louisiana to the antichrist. WTF???? I have seen some leaps in logic before but that's just crazy.

Yes, that is my point. We are not talking about LA and what they are going through. We are talking about Trump.

Same thing would happen if/when Obama/Hillary show up.

It's not about LA...it's about the politician.

That happens every time he goes somewhere, nationally or internationally.

But suddenly when it's Americans suffering a tragedy, the "logistics" are an issue.

Puh-lease.
