Trump tweets praise of Hurricane Harvey rescuers

President Donald Trump on Sunday morning tweeted his support for those doing rescue work as Hurricane Harvey continued to batter Texas.

“Great coordination between agencies at all levels of government,” the president tweeted. “Continuing rains and flash floods are being dealt with. Thousands rescued.”

The full extent of the damage caused by the hurricane so far remains unclear, but there were reports of many people stranded amid heavy rains and flash floods.

The president continued with a series of tweets as Sunday went along:

—“Many people are now saying that this is the worst storm/hurricane they have ever seen. Good news is that we have great talent on the ground.”

—“I will be going to Texas as soon as that trip can be made without causing disruption. The focus must be life and safety.”

—“Wow – Now experts are calling #Harvey a once in 500 year flood! We have an all out effort going, and going well!”

Mixed in were other tweets, including one in which he took a jab at Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and another in which he endorsed a book by David A. Clarke Jr. He also tweeted about Mexico and NAFTA.

With Hurricane Harvey, the president had tweeted similar sentiments Saturday.

“Wonderful coordination between Federal, State and Local Governments in the Great State of Texas – TEAMWORK! Record setting rainfall.”
