Despite President Trump’s insults, anti-immigration sentiments, and tirades about Mexico paying for a border wall, the country is coming to the aid of so many Americans who were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
Carlos Manuel Sada, Mexico’s undersecretary for North American relations told CNN that the Mexican government will send goods, equipment and crucial personnel into parts of Texas, and possibly Louisiana, beginning on Wednesday.
According to CNN, the donation will include 25 trailers filled with supplies like rice, beans, coffee, and chocolate. Also on the list are beds, generators, and radio and satellite equipment, as well as doctors and rescue teams to help on the ground.
“We are very pleased to be able to support our brothers in need on the other side of the border,” Manuel Sada told CNN. “If it were the other way around, I think they would help us, too.”
We’re sad to say we’re not too sure about that last part, given the President's harsh criticism of the country, but we are amazed and grateful for what Mexico is doing to help.
