President Donald Trump handed out warm meals and a bit of encouragement to some North Carolinians recovering from Hurricane Florence.

Trump is assisting volunteers at Temple Baptist Church in New Bern, North Carolina, Wednesday.

He's passing out Styrofoam containers with food, including hot dogs, chips and fruit and asking how those driving through are doing.

``How's the house?'' he was heard asking one person. ``You take care of yourself,'' he said.

Trump is also applauding organizers and thanking volunteers at the site as well as posing for photos and hugging volunteers, including a young boy.

One volunteer said the site handed out 1,200 meals on Tuesday to those in need.

President Donald Trump has arrived in South Carolina on the second leg of a two-state trip to survey damage caused by Hurricane Florence.

Trump arrived by helicopter Wednesday afternoon at an airport near the city of Conway, which is near Myrtle Beach.
