President Trump left for a vacation at Camp David just as Hurricane Harvey was approaching the Texas coast on Friday.
The hurricane hit landfall Friday night as a powerful Category 4 storm, the worst in a decade for the U.S. and the first hurricane of Trump's presidency. While it was later downgraded to a Tropical Storm, Hurricane Harvey left devastation and massive flooding in its wake.
As Trump was headed to a helicopter with his granddaughter earlier Friday, a reporter asked if he had any words for the people of Texas, to which Trump replied, "Good luck. They're gonna be safe," while giving a thumbs up and waving to the cameras.
