President Trump to donate $1 million to Harvey relief

Trump has had a spotty record when it comes to pledging and then actually carrying through on his promises to donate money to charities.

President Donald Trump is expected to meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on September 6 to discuss the best way to proceed on handling recovery efforts. In January of 2016, then-candidate Trump pledged to give $1 million to veterans charities, but it wasn't until reporters pressed him months later that most of the money was doled out.

U.S. President Donald Trump (C) and first lady Melania Trump (R) receive a briefing on Tropical Storm Harvey relief efforts with Texas Governor Greg Abbott (2ndL) in Corpus Christi, Texas on August 29, 2017.

According to White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee who spoke on Thursday, the President has pledged to personally donate a whopping $1 million to disaster relief efforts following the devastating wrath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.

Sanders says that the President told her to ask reporters at the briefing to suggest which organization his money should go to, because he hasn't yet decided.

Sanders said the president intends to return to the Southwest on Saturday to view flood damage with stops possible in Houston and Lake Charles, La.
