Trump has pledged $1 million to Harvey relief, White House says

He has pledged $1 million in personal funds to Harvey relief efforts.

Sanders made the announcement upon Mr. Trump's return to the White House Sunday, after he spent the weekend with Vice President Mike Pence and Cabinet officials at Camp David, where he was briefed on the ongoing impacts of the storm.

Trump tweeted earlier Sunday that he would be traveling to Texas as soon as he could go "without causing disruption".

"As of right now, tentatively, he plans to be in the Houston area of Texas and possibly Lake Charles", Sanders said in Thursday's morning briefing.

The Trump administration is trying to assure victims of Harvey living in the country illegally that they will not be targeted as they try to access emergency services - as long as they haven't committed other crimes.

At the same briefing, White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert said that damage estimates continue to grow, estimating now that 100,000 homes have been damaged by Harvey in Texas.

U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to donate 1 million dollars in personal funds to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the White House said late Thursday.

At least 38 people have been killed as a result of the devastating floods and that number was climbing as water receded. The storm is now threatening the region near the Texas-Louisiana state line.
