The two visited the burger chain while in Corpus Christi, where they participated in a meet and greet with first responders to the storm.  


Trump and Pence then met with a family in Rockport, Texas, whose home was destroyed in the storm.

They also visited a local elementary school to speak with teachers and students about the storm.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas in late August as a Category 4 storm.
