Subject: Travel Pool Report #5 -- Obama calls Texas governor
As the president continues to golf, and the pool continues to hold, the White House sends along this update.
Statement by Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:
This morning, President Obama called Texas Governor Gregg Abbott to receive an update on the severe weather in Texas and to offer the Administration’s continued support in the recovery efforts. The President expressed appreciation for the Governor’s leadership in responding to this powerful winter storm. The President relayed heartfelt condolences on behalf of himself and the First Lady for those who lost their lives and for the many people who lost their homes in the tornadoes over the weekend. The President made clear that he directed his team to closely monitor the situation and work with the Governor’s staff to provide whatever assistance may be needed.
