President Donald Trump nearly congratulated Texas Governor Greg Abbott for his state’s work in keeping people safe during Tropical Storm Harvey.
“We won’t say congratulations,” Trump said to Abbott. “We are not finished yet.”
Watch a video of Trump giving the remark in the video below:
Trump, along with First Lady Melania, arrived in Corpus Christie on Tuesday afternoon for a briefing on the storm, which has caused catastrophic flooding to the Houston area and has left thousands displaced. Over 3,500 people have had to be rescued from their homes and another nine people have died as a result of the storm.
