On Thursday President Trump traveled to Florida to take part in what has quickly become a common part of the job for him. Surveying hurricane devastation, talking to local officials, and getting off his helicopter to distribute food and handshakes to relief workers and residents who were left with nothing.
President Trump flew into in Naples Florida, the gulf coast town of multimillion-dollar seafront villas, as well as and inland mobile-home parks that were devastated by Hurricane Irma. President Trump stopped at one of the trailer home parks where an excavator could be seen removing the twisted remains of a double wide trailer, that was once someone’s home.

The president and first lady spent most of the time there shaking hands, hugging survivors, taking pictures, and handing out food to the workers and residents. But what was even more surprising, was that the food they were serving wasn’t from FEMA. The president used his own catering service that he paid for out of his own money in order to provide food for the victims. When have we ever seen a president do that before?
