This Friday, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania honored the 23 victims who were tragically killed in Alabama after tornadoes ravaged the area over the past weekend.
During the trip, President Tump and the first lady stopped by a row of crosses outside the Providence Baptist Church in Opelika set up in honor of the 23 people who were killed by the tornadoes.
The couple stood quietly together and held hands in front of each cross, the White House reported.
The report said that the President and first lady Melania walked up to one of the crosses, which were decorated with large red hearts, stuffed animals and flowers, and touched the top of them very delicately.
In many of the images of their trip, the devastation to the area is truly heartbreaking.
The couple also met privately in the church with many of the victims families, as another White House pool reported. Later, he met with volunteers and thanked them for doing an “A plus job.”
President Trump also signed Bibles and hats for volunteers and survivors, which included signing a Bible for a 12 year-old boy that drew huge applause from the crowd, the report added.
