White House: Donald Trump Personally Pledging $1 Million To Help Hurricane Victims”

Trump has yet to decide which institutions he will give the money to, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

"You have to take him at his word", said Leslie Lenkowsky, a professor at Indiana University who focuses on philanthropy and who formerly headed the Corporation for National and Community Service.

President Donald Trump says he'll announce a decision on the fate of hundreds of thousands of young people who were brought into the country illegally as children Friday afternoon or over the weekend.

The Trump proposal, which is being finalized pending White House consultations with key Republicans, promises to represent just a fraction of an eventual Harvey recovery package that could rival the $100-billion-plus in taxpayer-financed help for victims of 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

The initial package of Harvey aid would replenish Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster funds through September 30.

U.S. President Donald Trump holds a flag of the state of Texas after receiving a briefing on Tropical Storm Harvey relief efforts at a local fire station where local residents gathered to welcome the president in Corpus Christi, Texas, U.S., August 29, 2017.

Trump began the week pledging to secure funding for relief efforts "very, very quickly" and visited the region on Tuesday.

But a senior administration official said the White House expects the disaster funding and the debt ceiling to be paired in the Senate.

Trump has not decided which organization he will donate to, but the funds will go to parts of Texas and parts of Louisiana. The Dell Foundation is contributing $36 million to the fund.

"So, unfortunately, we will see additional losses of life if history is any prologue", Bossert said.

"Jeff Sessions and the president of the United States will not tolerate gouging", he added, referring to the attorney general.

"No individual human being should worry about their immigration status, unless they've committed a crime on top of coming here illegally, when it comes to getting food, water, and shelter", he told reporters.

Experts also say that floodwater samples from Houston show E.coli levels that are 125 times higher than is considered safe for swimming.

She said she had returned to her neighborhood on Wednesday to survey the damage to her one-story house.
