President Trump visits Texas for second time following Hurricane Harvey

President Trump is about to touch down in Texas for a second time since Hurricane Harvey hit the state causing unprecedented flooding.

His arrival in Houston comes as a huge clean-up operation is underway but outside the city flood waters are still rising in some areas. At least 47 people are known to have died and about 43,000 are in temporary shelters. The President has asked Congress for an initial $6 billion to help with recovery efforts.
