Will Congress exploit Hurricane Harvey to pass pork-barrel spending

While Texans are greatly relived their lawmakers are fighting for funds, states impacted by other storms are stunned, as both Cornyn and Cruz previously opposed federal funding for storm victims in the past, voting against aid to NY and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. "It's historic, its epic, but I tell you it happened in Texas and Texas can handle anything", he added.

United States emergency officials on Monday said they would strive to deliver federal help to Texas, with more than 450,000 people thought likely to seek assistance for possible replacement of property and other disaster-related aid.

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump walk on the South Lawn towards Marine One prior to their departure from the White House August 29, 2017 in Washington, DC. But there is no satisfying the White House press corps. It would be a first down payment to ensure recovery efforts over the next few weeks are adequately funded.

A Senate Republican aide said it was too soon to say what was needed. The White House is finalizing the request, which was expected to be sent to Capitol Hill later Friday. The official was not authorized to release the information publicly before a final decision is made and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"People weren't talking about the nuclear missile that Kim Jon-un tested, because Melania Trump apparently did something much worse", Noah said.

"What a crowd, what a turnout", Mr Trump declared before waving a Texas flag from atop a step ladder positioned between two fire engines.

Trump's comments, delivered at a White House news conference, illustrate the political minefield he will navigate in September as he tries to draw support for disaster recovery funds but wages a bitter fight with lawmakers from both parties about whether USA taxpayers should finance the creation of a wall that he has long promised Mexico would fund.

On the heels of Hurricane Harvey's disaster in Texas, heartless Republicans in Congress are preparing to cut almost $1 billion from America's disaster assistance programs in order to pay for Trump's racist wall.

A multibillion-dollar bill for federal flood insurance coverage may also land on Congress' desk soon from Texas.

In an interview with KTRH Radio in Houston Monday morning, Vice President Pence said officials are expecting the recovery to be a long-term project.
