Trump Praises CoC Disaster Relief Effort

Standing amid rows of boxes bearing the words “Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort,” President Donald Trump talked Friday to survivors of this week’s tornadoes in Middle Tennessee and expressed sorrow for the victims.

Trump visited the gym of the Jefferson Avenue Church of Christ in Cookeville, which church members converted into a relief center just hours after an EF-4 tornado tore through their community 80 miles east of Nashville about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Addressing the media, President Trump said:

“Even all of this — Churches of Christ — tremendous amounts of food and goods, and it all came within a matter of hours,” Trump said. “So it’s a case study — a case study of what should be done and how it can be done. It’s Tennessee.”
