Trump traveling to storm-ravaged Florida Thursday

President Trump to view Hurricane Irma damage in Florida on Thursday

Nevertheless, millions of residents in Florida remained without power on Friday, a risky scenario amid high temperatures in the state.

Trump, speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday after touring damage from Hurricane Irma on Florida's west coast, said "we've had bigger storms than this" when asked about climate change. Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in Florida past year by about 1 percentage point.

Trump's trip to Florida was his third in less than three weeks to the storm-ravaged South. "We are there for you 100 percent", he said, adding, "this is a state that I know very well".

As Harvey bore down on Texas in late August, Trump and his aides quickly said he would visit the disaster zone within days of the storm's landfall.

The president landed in Fort Myers with the first lady, Melania Trump, and met with federal emergency management officials and Florida officials including Senator Marco Rubio, Gov. Rick Scott, and Pam Bondi, the state attorney general, about the Hurricane Irma recovery operations. "So I hope he runs for the Senate", Trump said.

The deaths at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills on Wednesday stirred outrage over what many saw as a preventable tragedy and heightened concerns about the vulnerability of the state's large elderly population amid widespread, lingering power outages.

He said, "Every day the US government exposes a new side of its viciousness, thus proving Imam Khomeini's words true: The US government is the Great Satan".

The visit comes as lawmakers from Florida have made appeals to their colleagues in Congress to give more disaster relief aid to FEMA, anxious that the scope of the damage in Florida will require more resources to be approved in coming weeks. About 110,000 people remain in shelters across the state. At least 37 people were killed in the Caribbean.

Shortly after, first lady Melania Trump tweeted that she would accompany her husband to Florida on Thursday. Another told Trump that he had "married well".

Trump praised first responders and local officials for their handling of the storm.

Florida's southwestern coast is a haven for retirees seeking warm weather and lovely sunsets across the Gulf of Mexico.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president will be in the Naples area, in southwest Florida. Gas stations along the way advertised that they didn't have fuel. Days after Irma passed, nearly 80 percent of homes and businesses were still without electricity, and floodwaters still covered some communities entirely.
