While touring flood damage areas in eastern Nebraska, Vice President Mike Pence had a simple message for flood victims across the nation.
“We’re with you and the American people are going to stand with people across Nebraska, across Iowa, across all of the 8 states that have been impacted by this severe weather.”
Pence told ABC News its obvious damage has been great across the Midwest and that President Trump will fast-track requests for aid.
“At the Presidents direction we will expedite that request to make sure the families and communities have access to the federal resources and support that is designed for exactly times like these.”
Pence says though communities are suffering across the Midwest, he’s been encouraged by a sense of community that he’s seen coming from flood victims.
“I never fail to be inspired in moments like this,” said Pence. “The way communities come together and people volunteer…it’s just the best of America.”
