First Lady, Second Lady stop for lunch at Whataburger in Corpus Christi

During a trip to Corpus Christi, First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence made a stop at a Texas staple: Whataburger.

Melania Trump definitely looked ready to get to work Wednesday when she stepped off the plane at Corpus Christi International Airport in jeans and boots. Both posed for photos with emergency staff and military personnel who responded after Harvey barreled ashore in South Texas on August 25. The American chain opened its 1st restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950! She leads the visit that will include meeting with first responders, workers at a food pantry, and with a family who lost its home in the storm. "Hope they enjoyed it".

Trump and Pence traveled to Texas on Wednesday to check on the relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

A public service announcement, released in October, featured the first lady urging people to continue to donate to help hurricane victims.

They also visited a local elementary school to speak with teachers and students about the storm.

"As Christmas and the New Year approach, I encourage people to lend their time volunteering or providing financial support to those still reeling from the hurricanes", the first lady said in a statement.
