“The president will travel to Texas on Tuesday," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "We are coordinating logistics with state and local officials, and once details are finalized, we will let you know. We continue to keep all of those affected in our thoughts and prayers.”


Trump on Sunday praised the agencies responding to the disaster and said he planned to visit Texas.
