President Donald Trump toured New Bern, North Carolina, on Wednesday, viewing the damage caused by Hurricane Florence.
Trump also visited Temple Baptist Church and joined volunteers handing out pre-packaged meals to storm victims.
As he passed out supplies, one boy wearing a hat approached the president.
“Can I have a hug?” he asked.
“Yes!” Trump said enthusiastically, embracing the boy to the delight of the crowd.

“You did a good job,” Trump said, referring to the boy’s mother before taking a picture with the boy.
“Now you made me cry!” noted one of the woman volunteers.
