Trump says US is 'prepared' to deal with Irma

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with congressional leaders: House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, U.S., September 6, 2017.

Trump spoke with Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott and with governors from Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee - states potentially in the storm's northward track, as Irma began its asssault on Florida. "We've all been working together". Trump has also given Congress six months to resolve the status of individuals who were brought to the US illegally as children after he decided earlier this week to end an Obama administration program that allowed them to live, work and attend school without fear of being deported. "Right now, we're anxious about lives, not cost".

The President earlier posted a link to state information on the locations of shelters, road closures and evacuation routes.

In a live statement given on the White House lawn, Trump told reporters that he and wife Melania will be "going to Florida very soon". "The people of South Florida, the people of the entire state should know: We are with you".

Liverpool usually operate with a three-man midfield and it's believed the high intensity style could suit Oxalde-Chamberlain.

Long made clear that residents living in the hardest-hit areas who chose to stay in their homes despite evacuation warnings will likely not receive immediate aid from federal first responders.

Trump also said of Irma that 'we've never seen anything like this'. Congress acted quickly to pass the $15.3 billion deal and send it to Trump, who signed it Friday after he arrived at the Maryland retreat. "They realize what needs to be done to give me the enduring authority to push forward".

Long said he has faith that Congress will move swiftly if there's a need for more money. "He wanted to make sure we had all the resources". Here comes Irma. God bless everyone!'

FEMA head Brock Long said he's also been in constant communication with the commander-in-chief. "I fully anticipate another supplemental bill to pay for both Harvey and Irma".
