Melania Trump makes a pit stop to Whataburger during Texas visit

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (KXAN) - The first lady of the United States took a break for lunch Wednesday at a South Texas Whataburger, during a trip to meet with families affected by Hurricane Harvey.

A photo tweeted by Stephanie Grisham, the White House director of communications for the first lady, said Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence made the decision to stop at the popular Texas burger chain. Grisham wrote that Whataburger opened its first restaurant in Corpus Christi in 1950.

In nearby Rockport, Trump and Pence were joined by Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott and Land Commissioner George P. Bush as they revisited a town where Hurricane Harvey destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses in August, the Associated Press reported.

The group also visited an elementary school in Aransas Pass.

“As Christmas and the New Year approach, I encourage people to lend their time volunteering or providing financial support to those still reeling from the hurricanes,” the first lady said in a statement.

The first lady’s communications director didn’t say what Trump ordered at Whataburger.
