President Trump joked that his hands were “too big” while putting on plastic gloves to serve food to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston on Saturday.
Video broadcast by Fox News shows Trump working at a food serving line at NRG Stadium in Houston. While putting on gloves, Trump turned to the members of the press and said, “My hands are too big.”
Trump returned to Texas on Saturday to visit with victims affected by Hurricane Harvey and volunteers coordinating relief efforts. Alongside first lady Melania Trump, he handed out food and played with children at the evacuation center.
“People appreciate what’s been done. It’s been done very efficiently and very well,” Trump said following the visit to a Houston disaster relief center, according to a White House pool report.
“As tough as this was [the response] has been a wonderful thing, I think, even for the country to watch.”
Trump visited Texas earlier this week following the storm, where he was briefed on rescue and recovery efforts. But some critics argued that trip lacked the president meeting with storm victims personally.
The president is also set to visit Louisiana, which was also ravaged by Hurricane Harvey, on Saturday.
