Ivanka Trump discusses importance of vocational skills training during Mooresville visit

Ivanka Trump visited members of Mooresville Fire Department's search and rescue team who were deployed during Hurricane Florence.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Just two weeks after her father, President Donald Trump visited Hurricane Florence victims, White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump was in Charlotte area Wednesday.

Trump met with NASCAR drivers and officials at the NASCAR Technical Institute as part of the administration’s push for vocational and skills training. She also plans to meet with members of the Mooresville Fire Department search-and-rescue team who were deployed during Hurricane Florence.

"I'm just excited for Ivanka to come to Mooresville to meet the folks that deployed here locally, as well as down east and for them to have the opportunity to meet and her and talk about what we've done," said one Mooresville Fire official.

Those first responders evacuated 55 people and nine pets from flooded areas in Kinston, North Carolina during the devastating storm. During his visit last month, President Trump promised help for families in need after Florence.

Trump will also visit a disaster recovery zone in eastern North Carolina to see the damage left behind by the storm.
