His tweet comes in response to Moore, who tweeted on Friday before the storm battered Florida: "Has he opened up Mar-a-Lago as a shelter yet?"

Irma made landfall twice on Sunday, first as a Category 4 storm and then again as a Category 3, as it tore through Florida.

The expectation of the hurricane led to one of the biggest evacuations in U.S. history, with millions leaving their homes to escape the storm. It brought heavy winds and flooding to the region and left millions of people without power. Shelters were opened across the state.

On Monday, Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm, but officials are warning of continued dangers.

President Trump said Sunday he plans to visit Florida "very soon."
