Living ex-US presidents launch hurricane relief effort

Living ex-US presidents launch hurricane relief effort”

Clinton and George W. Bush teamed up in 2010 to form a nonprofit to assist the victims of the devastating quake in Haiti. They also may expand the appeal to those who are hit by Hurricane Irma.

The presidents will launch "One America Appeal", to start collecting funds with a plea broadcast during Thursday night's National Football League season opener, the group said in a statement. President Barack Obama asked Clinton and George W. Bush to lead an effort to help Haiti after an quake in 2010.

"People are hurting down here", added George W. Bush, after Carter praised both Bus 41 and 43 for their efforts. "But as one Texas put it, we've got more love in Texas than water".

Instead, the presidents were modeling themselves on past efforts - including the George H.W. Bush-Clinton effort after the South Asia tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, and the George W. Bush-Clinton effort after the natural disaster in Haiti - that brought together past presidents for charity appeals.

The One America Appeal's website says that the goal is to come together and support Houston and the other communities in the gulf coast, and that "every cent" will help the recovery effort.

A narrator picks up, "donate to OneAmericaAppeal.org".

But even Bush can't find a way to critique the Trump administration's handling of Hurricane Irma, only advising the West Wing display the same "kind of compassion and efficiency in a regular order day".

Carter points out the relief efforts carried out by Texans, including the Bush family.

Make checks payable to "GBPLF One America Appeal". Asked how he feels about Trump's recent strategy to work with Democrats - the President bucked his own party this week to attach emergency funds to a three-month increase in the debt ceiling - Bush said it depends on the motive.
