White House says Trump will donate $1 million to hurricane aid

White House says Trump will donate $1 million to hurricane aid”

"I had a chance to speak directly with the president earlier, and I'm happy to tell you that he would like to join in the efforts that a lot of the people that we've seen across this country do, and he's pledging a million dollars of personal money to the fund", she said.

Some Republicans, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., have urged Trump not to end the program and save almost 800,000 from the threat of deportation.

Representative Mark Meadows, the Republican chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told the Washington Post that attaching Harvey aid to a debt-ceiling increase would be a "terrible idea. conflating two very different issues".

The official was not authorized to release the information publicly before a final decision is made and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The initial request was more than previously anticipated. Sanders said that she did not know the legalities of how Trump was giving $1 million, but she claimed that Trump said he was "personally going to give", so Sanders said she assumed that meant that the $1 million was coming directly from Trump.

Sanders said the president intends to return to the Southwest on Saturday to view flood damage with stops possible in Houston and Lake Charles, La.

The president traveled to Corpus Christi and Austin on Tuesday.

He says, "I don't think there's going to be a lot of benefits going out to illegal immigrants".

President Donald Trump and his administration weren't focused on "silly" polls that showed the president with low approval ratings, but were engaged instead on "actual problems that Americans are facing", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr Trump came under fire for repeatedly announcing charitable donations but not following through. During the briefing, Sanders also asked the media for suggestions regarding which specific organization Trump should donate to.

"This request is a down-payment on the president's commitment to help affected states recover from the storm, and future requests will address longer-term rebuilding needs", Mulvaney said.

At least 38 people have been killed as a result of the devastating floods and that number was climbing as water receded.

Estimates of the size of a Hurricane Harvey aid package for Texas and Louisiana rose on Thursday, with one proposal being drafted for $150 billion, while the White House promised to make a request for funding soon to Congress.
