President Donald Trump will visit areas of North Carolina and South Carolina ravaged by Hurricane Florence, CNN is reporting.
South Carolina Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott are expected to accompany the president on Air Force One as he travels to the area on Wednesday, according to the news network.
Specific details about the visit remained unannounced, but the president was expected to stop in Myrtle Beach while in South Carolina, the news network reported.
Trump had visited Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico last year after storms hit.
The president has anticipated Democrats would attack the administration’s response to Florence. He tweeted on Tuesday:
“Right now, everybody is saying what a great job we are doing with Hurricane Florence – and they are 100% correct. But don’t be fooled, at some point in the near future the Democrats will start ranting...
“...that FEMA, our Military, and our First Responders, who are all unbelievable, are a disaster and not doing a good job. This will be a total lie, but that’s what they do, and everybody knows it!”
