Trump Visit Criticized As 'Photo Op,' But Here's How He Helped Louisiana In A Big Way

When Donald Trump visited a flood-devastated region of Louisiana last week while President Obama stuck to the golf links in Martha's Vineyard, he was criticized by the Left for merely staging a photo op to make himself look good.

But according to the Christian Post, a pastor in Louisiana has confirmed that the Republican presidential nominee did more than help unload supplies he brought and offer words of encouragement to victims of the worst natural disaster in the U.S. in four years.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said Trump also donated $100,000 to the church Perkins pastors to go toward helping flood victims get back on their feet.

During Trump's visit, Perkins told him, "The big issue here, and why I am so grateful you came and stopped at our church, is that this is a part of religious freedom. [It's] about having institutions that are right there in the community that are first to respond. People didn't turn to Washington."

And aside from the financial donation, Perkins said Trump's presence in Louisiana was beneficial.

"I'm grateful Donald Trump visited Louisiana. He helped turn the attention of the nation to a devastated region that faces a very long road to recovery," Perkins said.

80% of the homeowners hit by the massive flooding don't have flood insurance.
