Obama only showed up because he heard a golf course was in need of flood relief.
President Barack Obama’s day trip to tour flood damage in Louisiana is “too little, too late,” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
“President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago, instead of golfing,” the Republican presidential nominee wrote. “Too little, too late!”
Obama flew to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Wednesday to visit a region devastated by heavy rain and flooding earlier this month. In a release issued late last week, the American Red Cross said the flooding in Louisiana is the worst natural disaster in the U.S. since superstorm Sandy and that the relief effort will cost at least $30 billion.
Accompanied by his running mate Mike Pence, Trump himself visited Baton Rouge and the surrounding area last Friday, helping unload supplies and meeting with law enforcement officials for a briefing. Obama was still on his annual Massachusetts vacation at the time, prompting Trump to take a shot at the president’s near-daily golf games.
