As President Trump put on a pair of plastic gloves to serve food to victims of Hurricane Harvey at a Houston disaster relief center, he turned to the cameras and yelled out: “my hands are too big!”
Video broadcast by several TV networks showed Trump joining a food serving line while visiting the NRG Stadium when he made the remarks.

Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, returned to Texas on Saturday to visit with victims affected by Hurricane Harvey and volunteers coordinating relief efforts.
“People appreciate what’s been done. It’s been done very efficiently and very well,” Trump said according to a White House pool report.
“As tough as this was [the response] has been a wonderful thing, I think, even for the country to watch.”
Trump, who has faced pervious jibes about the size of his hands, including from Marco Rubio during the 2016 presidential campaign, defended the size of his manhood during a Republican debate in Detroit.
The Republican party frontrunner told the crowd at the Fox News Republican debate: “I guarantee you, there’s no problem.”
Rubio had previously said of Trump, “And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”
