First Lady Melania Trump's latest trip with Second Lady Karen Pence inspired her to share a Christmas wish with Americans this week.

The group also visited an elementary school in Aransas (uh-RAN'-suhs) Pass. President Trump and the first lady traveled to the Houston area just days after Harvey made landfall to also comfort victims and thank emergency personnel.

Landing in Corpus Christi, Trump and Pence are scheduled to get an update on recovery efforts in the region, which in August was devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

Trump "comes here to Texas with a caring heart and a true concern and compassion for all those impacted by the storm", she said.

The two will end their visit with a stop at a local food bank to meet with volunteers and help sort boxes.

"The effects of the hurricane season are still being felt throughout southern portions of the United States and in Puerto Rico, and residents still need our help", said Trump.
