"The heart of America, without regard to race or religion or political party, is greater than our problems", Clinton said.

Rousing applause greeted all of the Presidents, but especially George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

There is precedent for former presidents joining forces for post-disaster fundraising.

The event was originally aimed at raising funds for victims of hurricane Harvey, which hit the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25 and killed more than 80 people. His father, George H.W. Bush, then replies, "We love you, Texas".

In total, the former presidents have raised $31 million through their appeal from 80,000 donors, and according to ABC, the initiative has already distributed nearly $13 million to the Florida Disaster Fund, Rebuild Texas Fund, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, Juntos y Unidos por Puerto Rico and the Fund for the Virgin Islands.

A website accepting donations, OneAmericaAppeal.org, was created with 100 percent of proceeds pledged to hurricane relief.
