Trump Visits Florida: 'First Responders Are Doing an Incredible Job!'

Trump Visits Florida: 'First Responders Are Doing an Incredible Job!'

President Donald Trump will travel to storm-battered Florida on Thursday to survey damage caused by Hurricane Irma, the White House said.

The death toll from Irma stood at 81 on Thursday, including 38 in the United States, with several hard-hit Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands accounting for more than half of the fatalities.

President Donald Trump returns a salute as he and first lady Melania Trump step off Air Force One prior to receiving a briefing on Hurricane Irma relief efforts in Fort Myers, Florida, on September 14.

Trump pledged to be "there for you 100 percent".

The president and first lady touch down in Fort Myers as Mr. Trump greets Florida Governor Rick Scott, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and FEMA administrator Brock Long on the airport tarmac. He said, 'DACA, we're going to do it early.

The president couldn't resist injecting a political flavor into his visit, telling reporters in Fort Myers that he was hopeful that Scott, a two-term Republican, would run for the Senate, where Democrat Bill Nelson is up for re-election next year.

Hurricane Jose meandering in the Atlantic
Fox 61 weatherman Matt Scott said: "There are some rumours swirling about Hurricane Jose hitting NY in ten days". But one outlier track shows that Jose could veer off course and hit the US East Coast near NY .

Trump says alongside Scott and other Florida officials that he knows "at a certain point it ends for you and we can't let it end". The President is in the hurricane affected state to meet the first responders and local officials. Trump said then, "if they have to go higher, they'll go higher, frankly".

A possible alliance between Trump and the Democrats on immigration would represent a major political gamble for a president who made promises of tougher border control policies the centerpiece of his campaign and pledged to build a "big, lovely wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"When you think of the incredible power of that storm, and while people unfortunately passed, it was such a small number", Trump said.
