White House: Trump will donate $1 million to Harvey relief

FEMA pays for immediate shelter costs and can finance home fix costs of up to $33,000 or so, but other costs such as flood insurance payments, larger housing damage, and state, local, and government buildings promise a major price tag.

It's not yet known how much money the administration will ask for in the initial request, but congressional aides expect at least enough money to carry out relief efforts through the end of the budget year on Sept 30.

The request is expected to be officially released Friday night.

Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, said Trump showed "genuine compassion" on the short flight to Austin as they watched video footage of the flooding in Houston.

The first lady walked into a storm of controversy when she left Washington Tuesday for flood-ravaged Texas in snakeskin stilettos. Individuals of every background are striving for the same goal - to aid and comfort people facing devastating losses.

United States To Withdraw Free Trade Deal With South Korea
South Korea, however, could also decide to refuse any discussions with Trump, prompting a trade war between the close allies. This is the second time that the United States reportedly has been close to withdrawing from an existing trade deal.

In a letter to U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said the request included $7.4 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Disaster Relief Fund and $450 million for the Small Business Administration's disaster loan program.
