(Sept. 19) Media: Associated Press No one can accuse President Donald J. Trump of not looking on the bright side. On Wednesday, Trump toured the the North Carolina coast to see firsthand the destruction wreaked by Hurricane Florence, which the president called a "tough hurricane, one of the wettest we've ever seen from the standpoint of water."
