Donald Trump Hands Out Autographs And Tells People To Sell Them On eBay

Donald Trump signed autographs for people impacted by Hurricane Laura and told them they could flog them on eBay for $10,000 (£7,500).

President Trump visited Lake Charles in Louisiana to see the damage caused by the hurricane and to attend a briefing on the disaster response.

While there he signed autographs for people and urged them to list them on eBay to make some easy cash.

He then passed his autograph to a police officer and said: "Sell this on eBay tonight, you'll get $10,000."

He then added: "If I put your name down, it loses a lot of value. So just sell it tonight on eBay."

Donald Trump Says He'll Seek A Third Term As US President Because 'They Spied On Me'

Trump's visit to Louisiana came as the death toll from Hurricane Laura hit 14,amongst the deaths was a 14-year-old girl who died when a tree fell onto her house.

Several of the deaths have been attributed to carbon monoxide poisoning and the CDC has warned people about the risk of using 'alternate power sources such as gasoline generators and may use propane or charcoal grills for cooking'.

The CDC said: "If used or placed improperly, these sources can lead to CO (carbon monoxide) buildup inside buildings, garages, or campers and poison the people and animals inside."

More than 400,000 people were left without power in the state, and 200,000 without water.

On Friday, Trump approved a major disaster declaration for Louisiana, meaning the state can access Federal Emergency Management Agency funding.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said: "The devastation and damage stretch from south-west Louisiana all the way through north Louisiana, with more than a half a million power outages remaining, tens of thousands of people displaced from their homes and, sadly, at least 10 lives lost."

In Cameron Parish residents have been warned it could be up two months until power is fully restored.
