President Trump to donate $1m of own money to Storm Harvey relief - White House


 
Donald Trump is pledging $1m in personal funds to Harvey storm relief efforts, the White House says.

Announcing the donation to reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump was open to suggestions on which organisation to give the money to.


She said: "He's asked for me to check with the folks in this room, since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organisations that are best and most effective".


Harvey's floodwaters have heavily damaged tens of thousands of homes across Texas and the storm is now threatening the region near the Louisiana state line.
