Hurricane Irma: Trump offers ‘full resources’ in call with Florida Gov. Scott

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency and President Donald Trump has pledged “the full resources of the federal government” to help the state prepare for Hurricane Irma.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all 67 counties in the state on Monday afternoon and spoke with President Donald Trump by telephone late Monday night as Category 4 Hurricane Irma barrels westward with Florida in its potential path.

Part-time Palm Beach resident Trump and Scott spoke at 10:20 p.m. Monday, according to the governor’s office.

“Just spoke to @POTUS – he offered the full resources of the federal government as Floridians prepare for Hurricane Irma,” Scott tweeted afterward.
