Donald Trump slammed President Barack Obama's visit to flood-ravaged Louisiana on Tuesday as "too little, too late." 

 

 

Touring East Baton Rouge Parish, Obama thanked FEMA for its efforts and declared that the nation was "heartbroken" by the devastation and 13 lives lost in the flooding.

More than 60,000 homes have been damaged — and as many as 115,000 people across southern Louisiana have signed up for federal disaster assistance.

President Obama toured the area with Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and U.S. Sens. David Vitter and Bill Cassidy.

Obama said that the flooding was not just about property damage — but also about "people's roots."

Trump and his vice presidential running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, toured the devastation on Friday and donated an 18-wheeler full of supplies.

Later Friday, the White House announced that the president would visit Louisiana.

Hillary Clinton's campaign said Monday that the Democrat would travel to the Sugar State "at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response."

The announcement was viewed as a shot at Trump, CNN reports.
