In his weekly address to the nation on Friday (September 1), United States President Donald Trump said to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, “we are with you every single step of the way. We will help you recover. We will help you rebuild. We will support you today, tomorrow, and the day after.”

Trump has asked Congress for an initial $7.85 billion (USD) for Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts, the White House budget director said on Friday, adding that failure to raise the budget ceiling may hinder disaster relief spending.

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.

Trump had been expected to request $5.95 billion for the recovery effort after Harvey flooded areas of Houston and other parts of Texas.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has said that his state may need more than $125 billion.
