According to CNN, the president emphasized that the national government was ready to provide assistance and praised the mentality of the population. “People came out of nowhere to help as a community, and that’s what it’s supposed to be.”

“There are no red or blue tornadoes,” he noted, referring to the party’s colors for Democrats and Republicans. Mayfield and its suburbs vote mostly Republican; Small groups demonstrated in the town against the arrival of the Democratic president.
