President Donald Trump said Harvey's destruction and flooding was a disaster "of epic proportions" as he visited Corpus Christi, Texas, on Tuesday (Aug. 29).We want to say Heckuva Job. We can't wait to say Heckuva Job. But we'll wait until it will be less infuriating.
"This was of epic proportions. No one has ever seen anything like this," the president said as he received a briefing from Texas state and local officials.
Trump also said his administration wants to handle the recovery "better than ever before."
"We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as this is the way to do it," Trump said speaking to reporters. Addressing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Trump said now is not the time to say congratulations.
"We won't say congratulations. We don't wanna do that," the president said, "we'll congratulate each other when it's all finished."
