Handing out hot dogs, hugs and comforting words, President Trump sought Wednesday to soothe those who suffered losses in Hurricane Florence, declaring that “America grieves for you” as he surveyed damage the powerful storm left behind in parts of North Carolina.

After being briefed on the recovery effort, Trump helped hand out Styrofoam containers of hot dogs and chips at a Baptist church in New Bern, a riverfront city on the coast that experienced severe flooding. Trump’s motorcade then drove through a storm-damaged neighborhood where piles of waterlogged sofa cushions, mattresses and downed trees lined streets and boats lay on their sides after washing up along a grassy shore.
