The president went to Florida to receive briefings on recovery efforts. He also plans to meet with several of the first responders.

He told reporters at the White House, "Historically there's never been anything like this, but the U.S. Coast Guard, FEMA, working with Gov. Scott, they've really done an amazing job, power is turning on rapidly. We have the largest assembling of human beings ever for power and rapidly it's being turned on, so we're very happy with that."

President Trump was able to connect with several of the victims of the hurricane as well. Not only did he serve lunch to a handful of them, he also met with a few of the residents. 

He said, "Everybody has been incredible and the people that live here, immediately getting back to fix their homes, we are there for you 100 percent, I'll be back here numerous times, it's a state I know very well."
