Melania Trump stopped at Whataburger while in Corpus Christi


Second lady Karen Pence and first lady Melania Trump at the Freedom Inaugural Ball on January 20, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

The trip includes stops in Corpus Christi, in Rockport, and Aransas Pass. Eyewitness News reporter Tom Abrahams will be traveling with the First Lady throughout her visit and will bring you updates throughout the day.

That intrigue got the best of First Lady Melania Trump and Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday.

"As we approach Christmas this holiday season, your family is an example of what it means to have hope and recognize your blessings", she said.

The two women flew to Corpus Christi on Wednesday to view recovery efforts since Hurricane Harvey hit more than three months ago.

The first and second lady also visited a "local elementary school, touring classrooms and speaking with faculty and students about the hurricane", before stopping by a local food bank to help volunteers sort boxes of donations.

President Trump and the first lady traveled to the Houston area just days after Harvey made landfall to also comfort victims and thank emergency personnel.
