BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — President Barack Obama says the nation is “heartbroken” by the loss of life during recent flooding in Louisiana.

Obama is speaking in East Baton Rouge Parish as he tours flood damage in Louisiana.

Obama says people’s lives have been upended by the flooding. He notes that families have lost homes and possessions while local businesses have suffered.

The president says it’s not just about property damage. He says it’s also about “people’s roots.”

Obama says he wants Louisianans to know they’re not alone in recovering from the flood, even after the news cameras leave. He says the government will keep helping until people are back in their homes and their lives are rebuilt.

      Bingo! And those people that would expect Hillary to be anything different are fools. If anything, she’ll be worse, and those that support her are making a statement about their own integrity and character.
