Trump, Melania leave for Florida to inspect effect of Hurricane Irma

Here’s a post Irma look at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a Lago Club from Ocean Boulevard on Monday

President Donald Trump will travel to the Naples area as part of a visit to hurricane-damaged Florida on Thursday. Myers, just north of Naples, Trump spoke with reporters about discussions on DACA that he had with Democrats in Washington the night before.

Standing before rescue helicopters and personnel at a hangar earlier in the day in Fort Myers, Fla., Trump also heaped praise on the state and local officials standing with him.

Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record, has so far killed at least 80 people as it swept through the Caribbean and south Florida. Trump tweeted Wednesday that he planned to meet "with our great Coast Guard, FEMA and numerous courageous first responders & others".

As Northeast Florida begins to recover from Hurricane Irma, Congressman John Rutherford pointed residents to federal disaster relief programs that can help with recovery. "You see people immediately getting back to work to fix up their homes". Trump also expressed a desire to work in a bipartisan fashion before heading out to survey damage from Hurricane Irma.

"It's clear that the entire country is standing with Florida as Hurricane Irma batters our state right now", Gov. Scott said in a statement.

"I think the rich will stay pretty much what they are ... and if taxes have to be increased, they will be increased", Trump said.

As Trump passed out food with Pence and the first lady, people thanked them for coming and seemed more interested in selfies than sandwiches.

"We're going to see some of the folks and make sure they're happy", Mr. Trump said in brief remarks to reporters in Fort Myers, acknowledging that many had lost their homes in the destruction.

This would be the second trip in recent weeks to an area hit hard by a tropical system; Mr. Trump made two trips to the Gulf Coast, stopping in Texas and Louisiana, to get a look at damage and recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

"Details are still being finalized, we hope to have some of that ironed out later today", Sanders said.
