President Trump travels to SWFL to meet with Hurricane Irma victims

Seniors fight post-hurricane heat with Popsicles, compresses

President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irma was "far greater" than expected, "at least in certain locations".

The White House did not specify which area of the state the President would tour during his stop, but sources told CNN he would travel to the Fort Myers area, on Florida's gulf coast.

"This is not time for partisan politics", Nelson said.

Walking along a street in Naples Estates with his wife, Melania, the president encountered piles of broken siding and soggy furniture sitting on a front porch, and residents and volunteers who were happy to get a presidential visit.

Some 2.5 million customers remain without power Thursday.

It was reported that a quarter of homes in the Florida Keys - a series of low-lying islands - were destroyed in the hurricane.

Two others are in India , one in Canada , and one in Mexico , the Daily Mail reported . The company says it wants to build three of the transportation systems by 2021.

In a rare move, Trump also thanked the media. "They were hit about as hard as I've ever seen". "We've seen you enough". It was Trump's third trip in less than three weeks to the South to survey storm damage.

After Harvey struck Texas, Mr Trump drew criticism for having minimal interaction with residents during his first trip in late August.

Parts of the US Virgin Islands also lay in Irma's path, though Trump does not now have plans to stop there.

Mr. Trump said in regards to offering protections to "Dreamers" he said the administraiton is not looking at offering citizenship or amnesty, but that the White House wants to "do something".

In striking a deal with Democrats last week, Trump secured billions of dollars in federal disaster relief funding, though the affected states will ultimately require exponentially more help down the road.

On his second visit, to Texas and Louisiana, he was more hands-on. From there, Mr. Trump traveled to Naples, Fla., and visited damaged neighborhoods. When a musclar man approached Trump, he admired his physique.
