First Lady Melania Trump stopped for lunch at the Texas staple Wednesday afternoon while in Corpus Christi visiting victims of Hurricane Harvey.

During their visit, Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Pence are also expected to speak to elementary school students and faculty who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Both posed for photos with emergency staff and military personnel who responded after Harvey barreled ashore in South Texas on August 25. Among the authorities the first and second lady spoke to were Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush and Cecilia Abbott, who is the wife of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

"We love this!" the fast food chain responded.

Ms. Trump, Second Lady Karen Pence and their team visited the flagship location of Whataburger in Corpus Christi. They will then travel to Rockport to meet a family whose home was destroyed in the storm, and tour the home's remains.

Trump "comes here to Texas with a caring heart and a true concern and compassion for all those impacted by the storm", she said.

They will end their visit with a stop at a local food bank to meet with volunteers and help sort boxes. "In fact, the president shares the same concern and he and his administration continue to fight for resources for the people of Texas".

In October, Trump made her first official public service announcement, reminding people not to forget about the plight of those Americans affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
