FOREIGN AID/LEBANON: “We had a very important call this morning at eight o’clock with Lebanon and with many leaders from different countries. And I think it was — first of all, it’s one of the most horrific things I’ve ever seen…

I haven’t given a number [on financial assistance], but it’ll be substantial. On a humanitarian basis, we have to do it. We have to do it. It’s — you’d almost say, ‘How does a country survive such a tragedy?’ It was at a level — I have people over there… They’ve never seen anything like it.”
