Donald Trump is trying to sound like he has empathy for the people of Texas who lost everything as a result of the Hurricane Harvey devastation. He posted an empty tweet in a sad attempt to sound like he really cares.
Trump tweeted: “After witnessing first hand the horror & devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey,my heart goes out even more so to the great people of Texas!”
