As Hurricane Harvey nears Texas, Twitter users are reacting by blaming the storm on the majority of Texas having voted President Trump into office, and they are hoping that Trump supporters get hit with full force.
The Daily Kos is even claiming that the hurricane is now a race issue, saying that it is “poised to disproportionately impact blacks in Texas.”
Here’s what users on Twitter are saying:
Wouldn't of happened if Texas didn't vote for trump…. just sayin https://t.co/vcntBmhlki

Most people are fleeing Houston now not because of Hurricane Harvey…
They are fleeing because they heard Trump may come there after #usa

Hurricane Harvey has strengthened to Category 4 as it reaches Texas and the coast can expect 35 inches of rain. Many are comparing this storm to Hurricane Katrina. This will also be the first natural disaster that President Trump will have to deal with
