First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence on Wednesday visited popular Texas hamburger chain Whataburger while in the state to meet with victims of Hurricane Harvey.

"Looks like First Lady Melania Trump is Texas savvy", Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote. The rest of their order is unknown (so far), but the tweets about the pit stop are quite a journey. "She and Karen Pence dined at Whataburger today with my wife, the First Lady of Texas".

Officials in Texas approved.

Behind a podium with a "Texas Rebuilds" sign, Trump said her husband's administration collaborated with the governor of Texas to make sure the area received resources for recovery.

The four spent time at the Signature Hangar with 40 to 50 first responders including members of the U.S. Army, Corpus Christi Fire Department, Rockport Police Department and Nueces County Sheriff's Office. They will also see the family's new FEMA manufactured housing unit. They will then travel to Rockport to meet a family whose home was destroyed in the storm, and tour the home's remains.

After they fueled up, the ladies joined Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott in greeting first responders. "You serve as a reminder to all of us that the best gifts are those of family and friends, love and kindness".

The first and second lady also visited a "local elementary school, touring classrooms and speaking with faculty and students about the hurricane", before stopping by a local food bank to help volunteers sort boxes of donations. After, they stopped off for food.
