Conway: The President Stands Shoulder to Shoulder With People in Need
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, said it was important to them to pay their respects and show the American people that they stand beside them in challenging times.
"The president and the first lady have been on the ground literally shoulder to shoulder with those who are suffering and in need, whether it's Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico and certainly in the Las Vegas community yesterday," Conway said on "Fox & Friends."
She said that long after the president returns to Washington, D.C., his thoughts and prayers will remain with them.
"The rebuilding and recovery process in a place like Puerto Rico will take months if not years. And there are people whose lives have been shattered over the last week who are making preparations to say a final goodbye to their loved ones," Conway said.
"I think it's important for the country and the world to see that the president and the first lady and members of the administration stand with people in need."
