President Donald Trump went to Norfolk on Saturday to see Comfort leave for New York, saying, “This great ship behind me is a 70,000-ton message of hope and solidarity to the incredible people of New York.” (RELATED: Hospital Ship Comfort Is Headed To NYC, But Will The Harbor Be Deep Enough To Fit It?)
