President Trump on Monday assured hundreds of thousands of disaster victims that Congress and his administration will swiftly deploy federal funding to Texas and perhaps Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. “We’ve pledged our full support,” he said. The category 4 hurricane, expected to be one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history, displaced an estimated 30,000 people and claimed the lives of nine — including a family of six victims who died inside a flooded van — as of Monday evening.
