Trump Warns Hurricane Florence Will Be ‘Tremendously Big And Tremendously Wet’





President Trump warned on Tuesday that Hurricane Florence could be “tremendously big and tremendously wet” when it makes landfall later this week.

“They haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in 25, 30 years, maybe ever. It’s tremendously big and tremendously wet. Tremendous amounts of water,” Trump said in the Oval Office about the the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence, currently a Category 4 storm.




“The safety of American people is my absolute highest priority. We are sparing no expense. We are totally prepared, ready. We’re as ready as anybody has ever been,” Trump said. “They haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in 25, 30 years. Maybe ever.”

“So I have spoken with the governors of South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia. They’re prepared, we are prepared.”

Trump also touted the “unsung success” of how the government handled Puerto Rico’s storm recovery, even though recent studies found that almost 3,000 people were killed as a result of Hurricane Maria.
