President Trump traveled to Florida on Thursday to take part in what has quickly become a familiar tableau for him: the windbreaker-clad commander-in-chief, surveying hurricane devastation, bucking up local officials, and alighting from his helicopter to distribute food and handshakes.
"Don’t forget to take one," the president said to a friendly crowd as he stood behind a silver tin of hoagies, part of a staging area with food and water for resident and rescue workers. "Here’s a nice one!"
Mr. Trump arrived in Naples after he was briefed in nearby Fort Myers on the recovery operation by federal emergency management and Florida officials, including Senator Marco Rubio, Gov. Rick Scott, and Pam Bondi, the state attorney general.
