Trump Promises to Donate $1 Million of Personal Money to Harvey Relief

White House still reviewing DACA program for immigrant children -adviser

In one high-profile example a year ago, he failed to give a promised $1 million of his own money - plus another $5 million he said he'd raised - to veterans' organizations until reporters asked questions months later about who had received the charity.

Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement at Thursday's media briefing.

The White House says President Donald Trump is pledging $1 million in personal funds to Harvey storm relief efforts.

On Tuesday, the President's campaign asked supporters to donate to charities involved in the Texas recovery effort.

Trump's Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert says "no individual human being should worry about their immigration status unless they've committed a crime on top of coming here illegally when it comes to getting food, water and shelter".


A few weeks later, the White House announced that Trump had chose to give his first three months of salary to the Interior Department; his second three months worth went to the Education Department. Sanders said the President wanted reporters to help him decide which organization would maximize the impact of his funding.

President Trump visited Texas, where Hurricane Harvey has caused historic devastation in the one week since the epic rainfalls.

"I mean, I've heard $100 billion bantered around - not for a vote next week - but that may be the total amount of some kind of emergency package when it's all said and done". At least 30 people have died as a result of the massive flooding and the water has heavily damaged thousands of homes across Texas.

Mr Trump, who also visited hurricane-ravaged Texas earlier this week, is expected to return to the region on Saturday.
