A woman in New Orleans was so overwhelmed by the destruction of her home during a historic storm last week that she decided to go to the White House to try and talk to President Donald Trump.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was on the White, White House lawn when a tornado swept through the area, sending debris flying and destroying some of her house.
She then called the White the next day, according to CNN.
She said the President asked her if she wanted to talk to him, but she declined.
The storm left her house in ruins and left her in fear of her life.
She was devastated, and decided to seek help from the White Houses first lady, Melania Trump, and her daughter, Ivanka.
After getting on the phone with Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, the woman said the president was “very gracious and very understanding” and she “thought about her children,” the CNN report said.
The first lady and her family then went to the nearby White House for a meeting with Trump and his staff.
After a brief conversation, the first lady said she understood why she and her husband were so emotional.
The president had asked the couple to stay home and they could have a “private moment,” the first woman told CNN.
But the couple was asked to leave and were asked to go inside the White house to see if they could talk to Trump, she said.
They left and waited in the driveway for about 45 minutes, she told CNN.
“I was crying,” the woman told ABC News.
“I was very emotional.
I felt like I was going to die.
He had to explain it to me because I just couldn’t believe what was going on.
It was so scary.
I couldn’t think about anything else.
I didn’t even know what to say.”
The woman also told ABC that after Trump spoke to the woman, she realized she was being manipulated.
“I was scared, I was upset,” the mother told ABC.
“He said, ‘It’s OK, we’re here to help.’
And I was like, ‘What?!
And he said, I don’t know.
But I just knew I didn, and I said, OK, that’s fine, that was OK.”
The president was not present at the meeting, but he later gave his blessing for the first family to go back to their homes.
“When I was in that room, it was the first time I saw the first ladies husband, Barron and Melania,” he said.
“When they were leaving, I thought to myself, wow, I have to take them home.
I was very thankful to have them in my arms.
That was a wonderful moment.”
The first family then left for the White Senate Office Building, where they met with Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who was also in the Whitehouse.
After she left, the family went back to the home they had left, where a security guard escorted them out.
