Trump to spend weekend at Camp David monitoring Hurricane Irma with cabinet.

Trump to spend weekend at Camp David monitoring Hurricane Irma with cabinet.

WASHINGTON President Trump travels to Camp David on Friday, where he'll spend a weekend huddling with his cabinet and monitoring the federal response to hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

In a cabinet meeting Saturday his fourth full cabinet meeting since all members were sworn in three months ago will also give Trump a chance to review to "lead discussion on the administration's priorities," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

Those priorities have been buffeted not only by hurricane winds, but also a summer full of developments on North Korea, Obamacare repeal, immigration and race relations. On Thursday, Trump struck a deal with congressional Democrats to pass a short-term funding bill, provide hurricane relief and raise the debt ceiling through December.

In a weekly radio address focused mostly on tax reform, Trump urged everyone in the storm's path to be vigilant and "heed all recommendations from government officials and law enforcement."

"This is a storm of absolutely historic destructive potential," he said. "Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people."

First lady Melania Trump will accompany the president to Camp David, and has also invited the spouses of cabinet secretaries to attend. (Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, husband of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, will be in his home state of Kentucky this weekend and will not participate, spokesman Don Stewart said.)
