After record flooding from Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas earlier this month, Trump made two visits - first to Corpus Christi and Austin on August 29 and later to Houston on September 2.

He toured a Houston shelter housing hundreds of displaced people and walked streets lined with soggy, discarded possessions. "In many cases, they've lost their homes and it's a tough situation". Many communities are still cleaning up or without power or air conditioning. In Collier County, where Naples is located, 75 percent of residents still faced outages. In nearby Broward County, 300,000 were without electricity. Days after Irma passed, nearly 80 percent of homes and businesses were still without electricity, and floodwaters still covered some communities entirely.
