President Donald Trump on Monday praised his administration’s efforts in Puerto Rico, pointing out at a news conference that former Clinton Administration FEMA Director James Lee Witt told The Washington Post that the Trump Administration deserves an A+ grade for its response.

But more help is needed, Melania Trump says in the new 30-second PSA.

“The president and I have witnessed firsthand the compassion and commitment of Americans as friends and neighbors and strangers continue to volunteer time and money to help one another following the recent hurricanes,” the first lady says.

“Your help is still needed,” she continues. “Donate to an organization of your choice and volunteer to help your fellow Americans. Visit nvoad.org and ready.gov to learn more.”
