Trump to visit Corpus Christi, Austin to see Harvey recovery

"We survived and got stronger, and so will you". "We will come out stronger".

The president had tweeted earlier that he wants to examine the damage first-hand, but do so in a way that his sizable entourage doesn't impede ongoing rescue and relief operations, especially around hard-hit Houston.

Trump, who arrived wearing a white U.S. baseball cap, was briefed on relief efforts in Corpus Christi before touring an emergency operations centre in Austin.

Trump won't be visiting Houston, where much of the city remained underwater.

"This was of epic proportion", Trump said of the storm while he pledged massive aid.

Asked whether Texas authorities recognized the magnitude of the disaster quickly enough, Witham said, "That's debatable". He's fulfilling a goal he's had since seeing news coverage of a hurricane years ago.

Before making the trip, the president said his priority remains the safety and security of those still in harm's way. Obama traveled to Louisiana the following week.

Harvey is expected to make a second landfall in Louisiana on Wednesday as a weak tropical storm.

People are rescued from a flooded neighborhood after it was inundated with rain water, remnants of Hurricane Harvey, Aug. 28, 2017, in Houston.

He said the military is providing everything that has been requested by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, although the response is constrained by the stormy weather and by flooding that limits use of roadways.

In a separate interview with Houston's KTRH radio, Pence counseled patience.

"What I've learned is we can count on the president of the United States and his staff for helping Texas", Abbott said. "We want to take care of the people of Texas and Louisiana".

The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the ongoing flooding in Houston have already, nearly inevitably, drawn comparisons with Hurricane Katrina.

The first lady's black stilettos as she boarded Air Force One raised eyebrows online, with one news article by Mirror UK claiming she donned "the most inappropriate clothes imaginable".

Trump voiced confidence that recovery funding may be the unusual item in Washington that attracts bipartisan support.

"You're going to have what you need and it's going to go fast", the president said. "I know what you're going through".
