Trump has arrived in Corpus Christi, one of the worst affected towns in the hurricane-ravaged state of Texas, that has seen over 100 centimeters of rain in some parts. A category 4 hurricane when it made landfall on Friday night, Harvey has now been downgraded to a slow moving tropical storm that has hovered in the region, dumping record breaking rainfall that has paralyzed major centers like Houston, the country’s fourth largest city. First responders and rescue operations have already saved thousands of lives with homes and businesses under water in one of the worst floods on record in the United States.
