Trump says he hopes Florida Gov. Rick Scott runs for Senate

Trump says he hopes Florida Gov. Rick Scott runs for Senate

But referring to those who did perish in the storm as "such a small number" is more than a little callous, and probably something you would have never heard any of his predecessors say, considering they knew how to speak. Trump said that "the individual rate coming down will be substantial for the middle class", adding those are the Americans he aims to "take care of".

It cautioned that although it was set to weaken further, Irma was expected to remain a hurricane at least through early Monday.

Responding to a question about whether recent hurricanes are changing his views on climate change, President Donald Trump said, "We've had bigger storms than this".

President Donald Trump is making a political pitch for Republican Gov. Rick Scott while in Florida to survey hurricane damage from Irma.

Irma hit Florida about two weeks after Hurricane Harvey plowed into Houston, killing about 60 people and causing some $180 billion in damage, mostly from flooding.

Florida emergency workers have been urged to immediately check the welfare of those in nursing homes after eight people died in a scorching facility that lost its air conditioning during Hurricane Irma.

His visit came as British Prime Minister Theresa May announced an extra £25 million ($33.2 million, 27.2 million euros) in aid for Caribbean territories devastated by Hurricane Irma.

President Trump is now denying that a deal was made with democrats on young immigrants.

As Harvey bore down on Texas in late August, Trump and his aides quickly said he would visit the disaster zone within days of the storm's landfall. Vice President Mike Pence, who traveled separately to Florida, handed out food alongside the president and first lady.

On Twitter, Mr Trump said that first responders had been "great" but he warned there was "much work to do".

Around 115 residents of the retirement home in Hollywood, north of Miami, were immediately evacuated after a nearby hospital began receiving patients suffering from heat-related problems. "We believe at this time they (the deaths) may be related to the loss of power in the storm".
