President Trump has declared Sunday a “National Day of Prayer” for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Surrounded by leaders from the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, Trump signed a proclamation from the Oval Office on Friday inviting “all Americans to join us as we continue to pray for those who have lost family members or friends, and for those who are suffering in this time of crisis.”
“I don’t know when this was done last, but it’s been a long time ago,” Trump told reporters. “Is that a correct statement? It’s been a long time ago.”
Standing behind Trump as he signed the proclamation was Vice President Pence, who visited Texas on Thursday to survey the damage from the storm.
