WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is preparing for his trip to Texas Tuesday to survey the damage from Hurricane Harvey, the massive storm that has dumped torrents of rain across the state, flooding Houston and other cities.
It is the first major natural disaster of Trump's presidency, and the yet-to-be-determined scope of the damage appears likely to require a years-long federal project.
Trump is promising Texans will "have what you need" and says federal funding will come "fast."
Trump has been eager to seize the moment. The White House announced the first visit even before Harvey made landfall.
Trump vows, "We will come out stronger and believe me, we will be bigger, better, stronger than ever before."
