Hillary Clinton said Monday she will visit Louisiana to meet with flood victims once the visit of a political candidate can no longer interfere with emergency response measures.
“The best way to help Louisianans affected by these terrible floods is to make sure they have the resources they need today,” she said in a statement issued by her campaign. “I am committed to visiting communities affected by these floods, at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response, to discuss how we can and will rebuild together.”
Clinton noted that she has urged her supporters “to give what they can to the Red Cross, to bring much-needed aid and supplies to the more than 100,000 people affected by the floods.”
Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence visited Louisiana last week. President Barack Obama is scheduled to fly to Louisiana Tuesday.
