Donald Trump announced Thursday that he and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will be touring flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday.
ABC News Politics reported that the Republican presidential nominee and his running mate will concentrate on the state’s hardest-hit area of Baton Rouge.

Trump commented on the Louisiana flood Thursday night at the opening of a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We are one nation. When one state hurts, we all hurt — and we must all work together to lift each other up. Working, building, restoring together,” he said, according to The Hill.
CNN contributor and Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany tweeted:
TRUMP: “Our campaign is about representing the great majority of Americans… who turn on the TV & don’t hear anyone speaking for them.”

Conservative author and syndicated columnist Ben Shapiro, who is no fan of the Republican presidential nominee, had to nonetheless hand it to Trump.
