President Trump to visit as N. Carolina governor pleads for patience

Trump will visit SC to survey damage from Hurricane Florence

North Carolina's poultry farms suffered significant losses in Hurricane Florence, while flooding from the storm damaged crops in SC, industry officials said this week.

"We're ready.to do whatever we have to do to make this flawless", Trump said at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in eastern North Carolina, where he received a briefing from state and local officials. "Unfortunately, the money will be a lot". "We want to keep it going that way".

"Our state took a gut punch, Mr. President, and our people are still reeling", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said.

As Florence was bearing down on the Carolinas last week, Trump reignited the controversy over his handling of Maria by disputing the official death toll of 2,975 in the U.S. territory, which was compiled by public health experts at George Washington University. Many roads remained closed, and thousands of people lack power.

The White House has not yet released other details of his itinerary.

Mr. Trump didn't indicate he would direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct any further review of the situation, saying, "Well, it would seem the Federal Bureau of Investigation really doesn't do that".

The six-time National Basketball Association champion and Charlotte Hornets owner contributed $1 million each to the American Red Cross and the Foundation For The Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund.

Trump was participating in a briefing Wednesday with South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Republican Sens.

Trump's peppy mood in the face of, well, a disaster wasn't just a one-off. He has been criticized for his handling of Hurricane Maria, which devastate Puerto Rico past year, and more recently for disputing the official death toll of 3,000. Trump traveled to the area to assess the ongoing federal response to the hurricane, but he also took a moment to inquire about a personal matter. He warned that the Democrats will soon start criticizing the government response, and "this will be a total lie, but that's what they do, and everybody knows it!" Property damage from the storm is expected to range from $17 billion to $22 billion, the risk management firm Moody's Analytics said.

At least two other sewage spills have been reported in Johnston County in the past several days. "When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths".

Patrice Carmichael, who was forced to leave her home in Lumberton at the weekend as floodwater rose, said she had been promised a hotel room for her, her partner and their four children, but they were still stuck in the Pembroke shelter as of Wednesday.

The president said he trusts the Senate to do its job.

Greenville News reporter Gabe Cavallaro tweeted photos comparing a flooded street that had since returned to normal. County spokeswoman Elizabeth Stalls says there have been at least 150 rescues, but there have been many more "to the point where we've lost count".

A DHS spokesman, Tyler Houlton, confirmed the transfer but said on Twitter that the money could not have been used for disaster relief.
