Well, I saw this. It's hard to believe actually and I guess the fact that we went pretty early helped, helped a lot of people but we saw things that you wouldn't believe. Here it is. We saw the same thing."

10. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President:
"These are incredible people. We just met some of the survivors and family members and what they've been through is incredible. One woman lost ten people in her family and an incredible woman and I said, 'How did it go?' And she said, 'I lost ten.' Ten people. And a couple of others lost two and three. I've never seen anything like it. I just want to thank you on behalf of the first lady and myself, I want to thank you for the job you do, you're incredible people. We couldn't get here fast enough. I wanted to come the day it happened but I spoke with the governor and she said just give us a little more time, we need a little more time. And already the job is really great, the job you've done. So thank you very much. FEMA is laying it out, they're all here, they're all heart. A lot of folks coming in, a lot of folks coming in and so Secretary (Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen), I want to thank you for a great job and thank all of the folks at FEMA. And tell them to stay as long as they have to stay, whatever it is. Also, a lot of the folks get aid and we're providing all of the aid so you'll see the FEMA people, let them know as soon as you can so they know that. Because a lot of people don't know that. And they really need aid in this case. And again, we love you all, we thank you all, we love the state of Alabama. Georgia got hit a little bit and we're going to be talking about that later. We met the Governor, we met with Brian a little while ago (Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp), he's very engaged, I can tell you that. Thank you very much, everybody. On behalf of the country, on behalf of the United States, we want to thank you very much."

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the storm-ravaged town of Beauregard, Alabama Friday to survey the damage after a powerful tornado roared through last Sunday, killing nearly two dozen people.
Trump flew by airplane to a military base on the Georgia-Alabama border and boarded a helicopter that provided him with an aerial tour of the region before he arrived in Beauregard, which bore the brunt of the storm, and began meeting with victims.
"We saw things that you wouldn't believe," he said after visiting a section of town where tornado winds tore houses from their foundations and uprooted trees.
Mangled metal siding, wood planks and piping lay strewn on the ground, along with the remnants of everyday life: items of clothing, a sofa, a bottle of Lysol cleaner, and a welcome mat encrusted with dirt.
A local official had briefed Trump and the first lady as they stood in the open outside a trailer belonging to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is assisting state and local response efforts.
He met with victims along the streets, hearing their stories and dispensing hugs, in some case. He met privately with survivors and family members, including a woman mourning the loss of 10 relatives. "What they've been through is incredible," he said after he emerged from the meeting.
The president and his wife also visited a makeshift disaster relief center at Providence Baptist Church, where he thanked law enforcement officials and other first responders, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who oversees FEMA.
"We couldn't get here fast enough," Trump said following the private church meeting. "I wanted to come the day it happened," he said, but added that Gov. Kay Ivey asked him to wait.
The president was already scheduled to fly to his Florida home Friday before the Alabama stop was added to his schedule. He headed to Palm Beach after concluding the Alabama visit.
