They will see the remains of that family's home, along with the FEMA manufactured home the family is living in now.

Accompanied by second lady Karen Pence but not the president or vice president, the first lady landed at Corpus Christi International Airport in the morning and met with about 40 military officials and first responders at the hangar.

"Our hearts are encouraged by the people of Texas and their continued enthusiasm to help each other pick up the pieces and rebuild after Hurricane Harvey", Mrs. Pence said in the same news release. She & Karen Pence dined at @Whataburger today with my wife the First Lady of Texas.

Abbott expressed her thanks to the First and Second ladies for making the trip and for commitment to hurricane recovery efforts in Texas.

After they fueled up, the ladies joined Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott in greeting first responders.

Trump and Pence then met with a family in Rockport, Texas, whose home was destroyed in the storm.

Trump told the Zamoranos, "I am so impressed by your positive attitudes and resilient spirit, and look forward to the progress you will make as you rebuild your home and make new memories".

They also visited a local elementary school to speak with teachers and students about the storm. Mrs. Medina was teaching on the difference between facts and opinions.

They will not be the Coastal Bend's first White House visitors since Hurricane Harvey. There the first lady visited with the food bank's executive director Bea Hanson before getting to work stocking boxes with food.
