White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has announced that PresidentDonald Trump is donating $1million of his own money to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
‘He’ll pledge, proudly, $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of Texas and Louisiana,’ spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.
The White House did not say whether the money would come from Trump or his foundation.
The news comes a day after Sanders said in a press conference that she was unsure of the amount that Trump and the First Lady were willing to donate from their personal funds.
Following the announcement, Trump tweeted a photo of those who first responded and who were gathered in a multi-faith prayer circle.
