Trump Applauds Five Former Presidents for Hurricane Relief Effort

Here's a look at the Deep From the Heart: One America Appeal concert at Texas A&M.

"To presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Melania and I want to express our deep gratitude for your tremendous assistance", he added.

Five former U.S. Presidents, seated side by side in a packed Reed Arena on the campus of Texas A&M, offered their influence and still considerable star power to help hurricane survivors from Texas to Puerto Rico.

The concert, which was streamed live on the One America Appeal website, featured performances by country band Alabama, Grammy-winning "Soul Man" singer Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams as well as Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.

Trump also hailed the resiliency of the American people following the devastation of this year's deadly hurricanes and wildfires.

"This wonderful effort reminds us that we truly are one nation under God, all unified by our values and devotion to one another", Trump said in the message. But even their popularity paled in comparison to surprise musical guest Lady Gaga who arrived bearing a promised $1 million donation of her own.

"We're big fans of both Georges", said one couple to KBTX.

Clinton noted the nation's long history of volunteering. "Through this effort, all five living former presidents are playing a tremendous role in helping our fellow citizens recover", he said.

The appeal is not the first time former presidents have gathered together for a relief effort after a major natural disaster.

As the Trump administration is noted to have been slow to bring aid to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, the U.S. president occupied himself instead with tweeted accusations that members of the island's government displayed "poor leadership", and that "electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes". Last Monday he intimated Obama and other former presidents treated the families of dead military members with a lack of respect.
