(AP) - President Donald Trump handed out sandwiches and Vice President Mike Pence handed gave out bananas to people in a Florida mobile home community torn up by Hurricane Irma.
They were joined by first lady Melania Trump at Naples Estates, a mobile home community for people 55 and older. Around them were piles of debris, including tall piles of siding, furniture and branches.
The trio handed out food and posed for photos as people approached them. Most thanked them. One man yelled, "Make America Great Again!" Another told Trump that he "married well."
Trump pledged to be "there for you 100 percent."
Trump is touring the storm damage in Florida, where many remain swamped and without electricity. Nearly 2.7 million homes and businesses, about 1 in 4 Florida customers, remain without power.
