Trump: Nothing will be 'left undone' in storm recovery
U.S. President Donald Trump is pledging to help the people affected by Hurricane Florence as he arrives in North Carolina to survey damage wrought by the powerful storm.
Trump pledges, during a briefing by local and federal officials, that the federal government will be there 100 percent.
He says, "There will be nothing left undone."
Trump at times has struggled to project empathy during national crisis.
But on Wednesday he offered comforting words to families who suffered losses.
When the state's governor asked for federal support, Trump declared: "We will get it up and working again governor very quickly, I have no doubt about it."
Trump is also praising first responders during his visit to a coastal marine base, the first of several stops on his schedule.
