Sanders made the announcement upon Mr. Trump's return to the White House Sunday, after he spent the weekend with Vice President Mike Pence and Cabinet officials at Camp David, where he was briefed on the ongoing impacts of the storm.

Abbott spoke on ABC's "This Week" and "Fox News Sunday", and Long appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" and NBC's "Meet the Press". "This disaster is going to be a landmark event".
