Trump stopped in a neighborhood of Houston just outside Pearland. Intersection of Sagelink Dr. and Sagelink Ct. Mattresses, drywall land other debris, and trash bags, piled high at the curb of many of these homes, ranch style middle class.
Pool vans got stuck two blocks away and caught only the tail end. Trump was probably there for over five minutes.. Abbott and Cruz were there. Trump, holding hands with FLOTUS, was in a cul-de-sac and spoke. "These are people that have done a fantastic job holding it together," he said.
A man in a red "Trump is my president" T-shirt moved in and Trump invited him over for a photo. "You're going to be famous now," he said encouraging the man to take off his sunglasses, which revealed a pierced left eyebrow.
Motorcade rolled about 2:25 pm.CT. Next stop, we think, is Ellington Field for meeting with members of the Texas delegation in Congress.
