Trump says storm response 'going well' as millions brace for historic flooding

Trump appointee says for the 'past several years' he has been the victim of 'multiple cyber attacks and internet crimes'

The transgender troops ban and first presidential pardon caused a wave of intense criticism, even as the hurricane flooded coastal Texas and Louisiana. "It's quite possible that the streets could get impassable so we wanted to get that recommendation out". We will come out stronger. "The rebuilding will begin and in the end it will be something very special", Trump said.

Trump hopes his stops will send the message that he's fully engaged in the disaster recovery efforts, which have consumed Texas officials and are expected to persist for months.

Thanks for your continued support.


"The single most important thing", Trump said, "is the safety and security of those still in harm's way, including the first responders, who have been so terrific and courageous".

President Donald Trump will travel to Corpus Christi, Texas, on Tuesday with his wife Melania to supervise emergency aid work in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which has killed at least eight people and displaced tens of thousands. The federal response to Harvey's historic flooding is being coordinated by the White House.

It seems like Trump is more interested in using the alarming circumstances of the storm as a platform to boast about the government's preparedness.

Congress stepped forward with enormous aid packages in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012, though some GOP conservatives - including then-Indiana Rep. Pence - chafed at the price tag.

"The real number, which will be many billions of dollars, will go through Congress", Trump said at a White House news conference.

The President plans to travel to Texas tomorrow, and he praised everyone on the ground helping with relief efforts. Attention on Harvey from officials, the public and the news media also allows Trump to refocus after a turbulent stretch that included his widely criticized response to the white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. And the area could see a record-breaking 50 inches of rain in coming days. "Be safe", tweeted Trump during the weekend. "Spirit of the people is incredible".

Although the Friday night news dump is not a new concept, they rarely accompany a natural disaster-espeically the first major natural disaster to occur during a presidency. The president will get an update there on relief efforts with state leaders and relief groups.

Widely criticized in the press and removed from his relief duties by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, Brown resigned from his office on September 12, 2005 - two weeks after Katrina was declared an "incident of national significance".

"FEMA is going to be there for years", Long told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on "State of the Union".
