America Will Confront Hurricane Irma, Others – Trump
U.S. President Donald Trump has given the assurance that America would confront the Hurricane disasters and other challenges currently facing the country.
Trump, who gave the assurance in a tweet and his weekly address to the country on Saturday, pointed out that Hurricane Irma was of epic proportion.
The States of Alabama, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina have declared states of emergency while about seven million people are being evacuated.
“We will confront any challenge, no matter how strong the winds or high the water. I’m proud to stand with Presidents for #OneAmericaAppeal.
“Hurricane Irma is of epic proportion, perhaps bigger than we have ever seen. Be safe and get out of its way,if possible. Federal Government is ready!" Trump tweeted.
The president, who has approved a 15 billion-dollar disaster fund, said his administration was working closely to assist those in need.
“As Hurricane Irma approaches, my Administration is working closely with our state and local partners to help save lives, protect families, and assist those in need.
“This is a storm of absolutely historic destructive potential. I ask everyone in the storm’s path to be vigilant, and to heed all recommendations from government officials and law enforcement.
“Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people. We are doing everything we can to help with disaster preparations and, when the time comes, we will restore, recover, and rebuild – together, as Americans.
“In times such as these, we see the strength and the resolve of the American Spirit – and we see the kindness and courage of our people. With gratitude for our first responders, and prayers for those in the storm’s path, America stands united – and I mean totally united.
“From Texas to Louisiana, from Florida to Puerto Rico, and always the US Virgin Islands, and everywhere in between that has been affected by these terrible storms: we will endure and come back stronger than ever before,” he said.
