Trump prays for hurricane victims, criticizes Democrats

ERIE, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump took a short break from politics at a rally in Pennsylvania to offer his thoughts and prayers for those in the path of Hurricane Michael.

Trump promised to spare no effort in the federal response to damaged areas.

Returning to the upcoming midterm elections, the president told supporters Wednesday night in Erie, Pennsylvania, that Democrats want to impose socialism and take over and destroy the nation’s health care. He also accused Democrats of wanting to abolish America’s borders and allow drugs and gangs to pour in.

Trump told reporters before the rally that he considered canceling the event because of the hurricane but decided he didn’t want to disappoint those waiting for him. In 2012, Trump criticized President Barack Obama for campaigning shortly after Superstorm Sandy.
