President Donald Trump said on Friday he expects to soon make an initial funding request to the U.S. Congress to help Texas and Louisiana recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

The response doesn't seem to affect the Trump team, as the president has continued to wear his hat in different colors throughout his week while he weighed in on the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.

Trump has not decided which organization he will donate to.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement at a briefing Thursday.

A few weeks later, the White House announced that Trump had chose to give his first three months of salary to the Interior Department; his second three months worth went to the Education Department. And he hasn't followed through on previous charity pledges.

During President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump's visit to storm-torn Texas, the presidential couple wore baseball hats - and the internet is not happy about it.

"As of right now, tentatively, he plans to be in the Houston area of Texas and possibly Lake Charles", Sanders said in Thursday's morning briefing. He pledged support for flood victims, saying the White House will "be with you every day until Texas rebuilds stronger and better than before".

Hurricane Harvey has been labelled one of the most powerful storms to hit the United States in a decade.
