President Trump had a friendly meeting with two of his biggest critics in the House after visiting with victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas on Saturday.

Reps. Al Green, D-Texas, and Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, both met with Trump on the steps at Air Force One at Ellington Field in Houston as the president departed to visit flood victims in Louisiana. Both Green and Lee have advocated for Trump's impeachment in the past. Green has actually filed articles of impeachment; while Jackson has also supported the notion of using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.

"Trump seemed to speak in a very friendly way with Green, and they shook hands several times," according to a White House pool report on the encounter. "At one point, Green put his hand on the president's elbow as they spoke. It all seemed very friendly."

Trump also met with Reps. Michael McCaul, R-Texas; Pete Olson, R-Texas; Randy Weber, R-Texas; and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was also at the air field.
