President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he will be visiting Georgia in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.
Trump did not give a specific date as to when he will be visiting both Florida and Georgia.
(update 10/14/18 4:00 pm – Trump will be traveling on Air Force One into Warner Robins on Monday, October 15.)
Over two hundred thousand people lost power in Georgia which mostly impacted in the Southwestern portion of the state. Hurricane Michael entered Georgia as a Category 3 hurricane claiming one life of an 11-year-old girl, created massive flooding, tree damage, and destruction of almost $1 billion to the agribusiness industry in the state.
Trump signed FEMA emergency declarations for Georgia and Florida last week.
People have no idea how hard Hurricane Michael has hit the great state of Georgia. I will be visiting both Florida and Georgia early next week. We are working very hard on every area and every state that was hit – we are with you!
