President Trump announced Sunday he would visit South Florida in the near future, following Hurricane Irma’s devastation along the state’s west coast.
“We’re going to Florida very soon,” Trump said outside the White House on Sunday.
“It’s going to play out over the next five or six hours. I’m going in now for meetings, but it’s all about coordination. I think we’re really well coordinated, as well as you can possibly be,” Trump told reporters.
“The bad news is that this is some big monster, but I think we’re really well coordinated,” he said.
“It’s just about the biggest ever recorded that hit land, and unfortunately we got it. We may have been a little bit lucky in that it went on the west, and may not have been quite as destructive, but we’re going to see,” the president said.
