WH Spox Denies Obama Louisiana Visit Is a Response to Trump

Monday at the White House press briefing when a reporter asked if the White House scheduled a visit in response to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s visit to the flooded areas in Louisiana, press secretary Josh Earnest said, “Of course not.”

He added, ‘”I can tell you what the president has been focused on the response on the ground and the people whose lives in Louisiana have been turned upside down by this terrible flooding event. And the response you have seen the federal government has been effective.”
