First lady Melania Trump visits Harvey responders, dines at Whataburger

First lady Melania Trump visits Harvey responders, dines at Whataburger

First Lady Melania Trump, along with Second Lady Karen Pence, are in Texas today, urging continued support for hurricane victims, particularly during the holiday season.

The first lady's director of communications tweeted out a photo of Melania and Karen standing at the front counter, making the tough decision between the Whatachick'n or the classic Whataburger. The American chain opened its 1st restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950!

The motorcade also stopped at a Whataburger, so the first and second ladies could grab lunch.

CNN's Kate Bennett shared that they received no burgers during the stop. They are here for ongoing help for #HurricaneHarvey.

"On our way out of town, @FLOTUS & @SecondLady chose to stop in to @Whataburger for some lunch!" They will see the remains of that family's home, along with the FEMA manufactured home the family is living in now. She leads the visit that will include meeting with first responders, workers at a food pantry, and with a family who lost its home in the storm.

Their visit caught the attention of Whataburger, which tweeted, 'Hope it was a great meal!

Trump and Pence are also expected to make a trip to Charlie Marshall Elementary School in Aransas Pass to speak with students and faculty who were affected by the storm. Harvey made landfall in August and devastated communities in the south of Texas.
